Download My Embellishments: The GLOSAS CD sheet music, now available as free download


GLOSAS, my third CD as More Hispano’s director, was released in 2011: it’s a very personal project which brings together original and unpublished material: my own, new embellishments on Renaissance music — Want to know more?

*Improvised embellishments (glosas) by Vicente Parrilla: track 1
**Embellishments by Vicente Parrilla after Ganassi (1535): tracks 2, 3, 6, 7, 10
***Embellishments by Vicente Parrilla: tracks 5, 8, 9

Missing tracks: You’ll probably have noticed that sheet music links for tracks 4, 13 & 14 are missing, but there’s always a reason for that:

  • Track 4 is original 16th c. music by Narváez that you can find elsewhere: it works as an introduction to track 5 on the CD.
  • Track 13 is original 16th c. music too.
  • And finally track 14 is a free improvisation on the passacaglia bass, so no sheet music exists for this track.

Thanks for reading. I'm a professional musician, no ordinary recorder player & teacher. I'm one of the few Early Music performers fully focused on improvisation. “Mr. Parrilla and company go all out.”The New York Times. Read more · Follow me on twitter.
