Cantos Aztecas Songs of the Aztecs CD – ALEPH 011


Cantos Aztecas is a collection of provocative and mystical poems written by an Aztec prince more than 900 years ago, set to music composed and conducted by Lalo Schifrin. This astounding work features Placido Domingo as principal soloist, a 100-piece orchestra, a 120-person choir, and four soloists. Recorded live at the pyramid of the moon in Teotihuacan, the work is sung in the original language of the Aztecs, Nahuatl.
Available on CD, VHS and DVD, Cantos Aztecas is Aleph Records’ premiere video release. All three formats feature a 32 page booklet, and the DVD version contains extra features, such as photos, bios, individual track selections, and additional chapters.
