Once again Jordi Savall - together with the late-lamented Montserrat Figueras - have opened our ears to a strange musical world that (I should guess) was unknown to the average music-lover; and of course with his habitual masterly musicianship.
Here he directs three versions of the 'Song of the Sibyl'. What is their provenence? Few of us who have roared out "David cum Sybilla" in the Dies Irae, perhaps in Verdi's great Requiem outburst, have bothered to consider these words' relevance, unless perhaps raised in the Catholic faith. Here Savall presents three versions (from Majorca, Valencia and Catalonia) of the Song of the Sybil, which was widely sung formerly across medieval Europe - and especially more recently in Spain - at Matins at Christmas time; and can still be so heard at the Cathedral at Palma de Mallorca.
These are revelatory performances which everyone should try to hear.

The Song of the Sibyl is a hidden gem. Although banned by the Catholic Church, the tradition of singing the piece continued in the vernacular across Spain. This is one of the best versions.

I bought this at random and am so glad I did. It is really soothing and relaxing but also varied. The voices are beautiful. Makes me feel like I am a cathedral.

I downloaded the MP3 version so no sleeve notes. Heard it first on the BBC's Early Music Show and loved it's almost mournful qualities...beautiful singing from the late Montserrat Figueras. All three 'Sibyls' have their own individual charm but the final Catalunya is my favourite. This album will appeal to any who enjoy their early music slightly more ethereal.
