In Spain, the term tono humano was used during the Baroque period to refer to secular songs performed at urban spectacles or entertainment events such as theatrical performances, poetry contests, court parties or private concerts. These pieces often provided the musical setting for feasts; travels; promenades; soirées; academies where aristocrats, poets and musicians gathered; and meetings of influential people. Even clerics and nuns enjoyed their free time listening to, playing, singing and composing tonos humanos. The programme on this CD invites us to feel different emotions and reminds us of situations caused by love: suffering, inconstancy, jealousy, loneliness, disillusionment, coquetry, etc. In short, the listener will find in this compilation the first monographic recording focused on the CPMM, an exquisite source from a Golden Age in the history of the Music in Spain. The tonos and instrumental pieces included on this CD reflect the variety of airs, the richness in musical styles and the diverse influences (Italian, Portuguese, French…) during the transition from the Baroque period to the Enlightenment. The main topic, Cupid’s power over gods and mortals and the consequences of his arrow shots, reminds us still today that love conquers all.
