5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Beautiful. 16 Jan 2011
Format:MP3 Download
What a surprise to find no other reviews on here.

I am 23 years old, but I can categorically say that this is my absolute favourite album of all time, above everything else that I know and love.

For me, this is Early music in more than one sense, and that is because as a child, my parents used to play this music around me a lot, almost to the point where it feels as if these sweet sounds are part of my very DNA.

As somebody who has grown up to love classical and 'Early' music, I was looking through my Dad's CD collection the other day to re-discover this heart-achingly beautiful collection of traditional pieces, by the impeccable Jordi Savall.

This album should be for anybody, from those who have never ventured into the realms of such timeless music, to those whose hearts were already captured long ago.

Please don't hesitate another moment.

The music of Catalonia is among the richest in Europe,yet amazingly little-known outside its home-ground. Almost 1000 years of Catalan song are superbly represented in this masterly recreation by Jordi Savall, who as a veteran of the early music revival is particularly well-placed to fathom the historic music of his native country.The haunting bell-like voice of Montserrat Figueras,and the splendid musicianship of the vocal and intrumental ensemble of the Capella Reial combine to give performances which are always refined and moving,historically authentic ,and often rivetting in their intensity. The nine selections are divided between laments, legends(that is,historical epics) and lyrics.This is a rich and varied music which has learned something from church music and from the troubadors, yet can also be direct and simple ,like a lullaby or a carol. Particularly wonderful is the virtuoso SONG OF THE BIRDS,whose beautiful melody was played by Casals and admired by Stravinsky; and the final selection, the extraordinarily evocative Catalan National anthem THE REAPERS, which records the grim defeat of the Catalans in their 1640 uprising against Spanish oppression. Bon cop de falz! What other country sings so regularly (and with such dignity )of its national pain as the centre of its national identity? This is a surpassing work. In general production quality on this Franco-Spanish AUVIDIS CD is good,and only the liner notes leave something to be desired. To sum up: this is unusual, hauntingly beautiful music,superbly sung and played;and which should appeal to any unprejudiced listener,who is ready to explore the world of early music,to Barcelona and beyond...
