Album Notes
La Catedral an instrumental guitar recording tells the story of the Latin soul - a soul of vibrant fire and deep peace. This album takes its title from a composition written by Agustin Barrios Mangore in 1914. It is based ona an experience he had in Uruguay. While passing by the cathedral he heard the music of Bach being playedon the church organ. It poured out into the street. As he walked away from teh cathedral and into the crowded streets of San Jose, he noted the striking contrast of the serene sacred music and the hustle and bustle that now surrounded him. Out of this contrast La Catedral was born, with moments of pure lucidity building to a clinactic flurry of motion.

The music tells the story of those that leave all they know to bring truth and light to the turbulent world around them.

In the music of William Wilson classical guitar lovers are presented with a unique combination of classical and world music influences. Solid command of his instrument mixes with a vibrant and refined repertory to create a compelling synthesis of passion and peace.
