Album Review
Be Sharp
Reviewed 2011-03-26 
This could be very cool either for classical & world-music programs. It's a collection of music written (mainly) in Latin America during the Baroque period. Much of the music combines European style with native tones, rhythms & feel. All the tracks are quite short.

Ensemble Caprise, based in Montreal, specializes in Baroque music. Directed by flutist Matthias Maute, the group includes voices, period brass and strings, guitar, harpsichord and organ.

My Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5, 12, 18, 20, 22 for World Music
6, 7, 13-15, 21 for Classical

No FCC issues.
