Spanish Baroque music went into years of slumber until conductor and early music expert Eduardo López Banzo reanimated it with the Al Ayre Español ensemble, which he formed in 1988. The specialists of historically informed performance have been surprising and delighting audiences around the world with secular and sacred Baroque works for 30 years now. With a rousing and thought-provoking programme entitled »¡Vaya pastores de fiesta!«, the Al Ayre Español ensemble is joined by the Vozes del Ayre vocal quintet to celebrate a Spanish Christmas in the Baroque style.
