ARIA in D Minor - Padre Rafael Angles (1730-1816)
There have been many Priest Composers in the history of music, notably Antonio Vivaldi (1676-1741), but many of the lesser known composers, (often Spanish) wrote delightful music, and, were obviously needed to write religious music for the church. Both Angles and Casanovas were Spanish and show imagination and skill in these keyboard pieces which transcribe so well for the harp and pair well for concert performance. The long melodic line and harmonic sequence in Angel's Aria is both moving and masterful and Casanovas's Sonata, delicious and scintillating.
