5.0 out of 5 stars Try something a little different! 15 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a very ambitious project. To bring alive such a rich diversity of medieval music, both in terms of style and tone is truly an amazing undertaking. Jordi Savall and his group Hesperion XX ultimate achievement is to give us a very convincing idea of how Spanish early music might have sounded covering a wide variety of material from dancing tunes to troubadour songs, courtly music and sophisticated instrumental works. So, what could sounded leaden, dry and overly scholarly is in fact engaging, life affirming and in the final analysis, highly entertaining.

Recommended: Great value, fantastic performance standard and well recorded. You might not want to listen to too much of this set at one sitting, but it is great to dip into - it's really a life time trip into some very beautiful music, so why rush!

4.0 out of 5 stars time travel for the ears 17 July 2002
Covering over 600 years of Spanish music, including the Arab influences and the Hebraic tradition, this is an incredible collection of music. And with 6 cds in the set, amazing value. It is a tremendous introduction to early music, and should whet your appetite for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful early music at a great price 23 Nov 2008
By Aquinas
The 8 CDs in this collection contain some really lovely early music from diverse sources over several centuries. Curiously, I was struck by an instrumental tune on one of the CDs (the Baroque era, I think), which seems to be the same as the Taize chant: "Laudate Dominum, Omnes gentes..." Great value - buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic value - great music 11 April 2009
By nieges d'autan VINE VOICE
Jordi Savall is both a fine musician and a great scolar, who brings a real originality in putting together concerts from a wide repertoire.
This set of Cd's is a good introduction to a towering figure in Early Musci - and extremely enjoyable. Try listening on your MP3 - the resonance is extraordinary.
