About

Born in Liège, Matheo Romero was in the service of the Spanish court; his secular works show that he had perfectly assimilated the characteristics of his adopted country’s music. Composed at the very beginning of the baroque era, these romances, folias and canciones also show the influence of the Italian madrigal style and of its affects; just as in the madrigals proper, Nature is the prime confidant of the texts’ professions of love and amorous deceptions.
