Música Ficta
Música Ficta

Bogotá-born musician José Cascante was a composer and organist, and worked as Chapelmaster of his home city's cathedral from 1646 until his death, and oversaw the installation of its organ. Today's Beautiful Music is from a 2021 concert performance in Mexico of José Cascante's Qué dulcemente que canta by Música Ficta, whose members are tenor & jarana player Jairo Serrano, sopran recorder player Carlos Serrano, and baroque harp player Bárbara Cerón.

You can see all the music featured for Hispanic Heritage Month on the Sunday Baroque website.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
