Despite being practically unknown nowadays, José de Torres was very prestigious among his contemporaries, which meant that his work circulated widely throughout Hispanic territories. It is thus not by chance that the four cantatas selected for this CD are found nowadays in the cathedrals of Mexico and Guatemala.

The late cantatas by José de Torres show the assimilation of the latest musical tendencies, always in a personal and very original manner. While in his first cantatas, written during the 1710s, Torres mixed recitatives and arias with other genres from the late 17th-century Hispanic musical practice, such as coplas, seguidillas, graves, minuets, estribillos or fugues, in his late cantatas he chooses to follow the standardized pattern of a succession of recitatives and arias. In addition to this, the length and complexity of the arias become considerably greater compared to his first ventures into the genre.
