One thing is beyond dispute. Dulce Pontes has a technically stunning and highly expressive voice but listening to her back catalogue has been the classic 'Curate's egg'. While one admires her eclectism, past releases have been tainted by syrupy orchestral additions(even her Ennio Morricone collaboration 'Focus' fell into this trap)and, dare I say it, Eurovision song contest middle-of-the-road keyboards. Particularly avoid any recordings of her voice backed by a drum kit (= 'power ballad'). None of that here. Just wonderful Portuguese guitar, minimalist piano, cellos and occasional use of flute. Believe it or not Folclore even allows dissonance between Galician pipes and harsh cello tones. Amazingly (in view of her past record) a track like A charola uses gossamer-light orchestral backing and pulls it off. Ha festa na Mouraria dares to use her voice multi-tracked like a Renaissance choir of angels. It still won't appease Fado purists but the fact that this is all on a double CD with a selection of live performances is irresistible - it's been a long wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars o my goodness 4 Aug 2008

I have been a relativley recent convert to Fado and Fado this isnt, Her previous stuff is magnificent in its emotive power and melodic structure. This is in a different league. Beauty, passion and downright makes you tingle all over- If you can listen to the studio album and not be moved then you must have no working parts.
The only downside is there is no english translation of the lyrics, but then whatever it is she is singing about does not really need translating. it is a universal truth of love, loss and beauty. youll have to excuse me now im going for a quick tremble. Keith

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic listening 11 Oct 2011
By Hatbox Dragon - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this not really knowing what it was. The cover made me curious, and I'd recently visited the famous Convento de Cristo in Tomar (Portugal) where some of this music was recorded. Verdict? This is a fantastic double CD!

CD 1 is a live concert recording with an enthusiastic audience and CD 2 was recorded in various settings around the Convento de Cristo. Dulce Pontes' voice is strong, attractive and very expressive and has an exuberance I really enjoy. Here she sings a range of material (fado, traditional and her own compositions), accompanied by guitar, cello, flute and choir. While some tracks are quite melancholy, overall both CDs have an upbeat feel. The sound quality is very good and the vocal/instrumental balance seems just right.

For me the standout tracks are:
1) Folclore, a traditional song with an Middle Eastern feel which appears on both CDs in different mixes;
2) Ha festa na Mouraria, a peaceful song by Pontes to the Virgin Mary which likewise appears on both CDs;
3) Uma caixa de po, a sweet/sad song by Pontes on CD 2; and
4) A charola, the instrumental opening to CD 2.

I also really enjoyed the energy of Resineiro (CD 1) and Tenho uma casa no sul (CD 2). All song lyrics and recording details are included in the program notes (Portuguese and Spanish, unfortunately no English).

I'd certainly get another of Dulce Pontes' CDs. Also, before listening to this I hadn't much enjoyed fado and I'm now interested in hearing more.

Final note: do visit the Convento de Cristo if you get the chance, it's an interesting and beautiful place and Tomar is a pretty little town.
