The manuscript sources used for Arca de Musica Vols. 1 and 2, allow us to discover a new world: that of the varied instrumental performance practices in New Spain, which show to have been diverse and dynamic, reflecting the 18th century Mexican society. La Fontegara's interpretation of this music aims to recreate these practices through combining the research of original sources with understanding how music could have sounded in the houses, theaters and palaces of 18 c. Mexico, with creativity and imagination. The second volume contains ""fashionable"" late 18 c. instrumental music mentioned in the probably oldest catalogue of a music store in America, owned by Padre Jose Fernandez de Jauregui. The more than 400 authors included in the repertoire are mostly German/English, French and Spanish composers, with some Italian and local composers. La Fontegara's selection includes J. C. Bach, F. X. Richter, C. F. Abel, F. Devienne, Luis Mison and fortepiano solo Sonata quinta del senor Aydem, belonging to Quaderno Mayner Mexican manuscript.
