MEXICAN BAROQUE ORCHESTRA was formed by Miguel Lawrence in 2009 under private sponsorship to play the Concertos “ Pensieri Adriarmonici ” by Venetian composer Giacomo Facco, which were discovered in 1961 inside the library of “Colegio de las Vizcaínas”, a colonial building founded in México City in 1734.

For this purpose the Mexican Baroque Orchestra uses Mexican colonial instruments like the vihuela and the guitarrón to interpret the basso continuo of baroque music in a style according to 18th century practice in Mexico. The orchestra is now busy performing and recording many works by Facco, Vivaldi, and other Venetian composers for Divine Art and Toccata Classics.
