Again Jordi Savall has produced a disc beyond ones expectations. Indeed it was all that I would have hoped for and have looked for - that magical illusive sound of vocals and string orchestras that permeate the Western Euopean Conciousness and Sub Concious, often only maddening snatches are heard felltingly on film sound tracks. All sounds are freshly minted and it does not have the dusty creaky production values that some exponents of ancient ( said avdvisadly) music revel in to the detriment of their art. I can offer no greater praise than those who are not familiar with this great artist and his wonderful collaborators could not have a better introduction to a very magical world
Played on a high-quality SACD player this has a haunting quality that will repay listening to over and over again. Even the breathing of the woodwind player can be heard and the vocal colouring is exceptional. Very high-quality recording indeed, even when transferred to the iPhone. A revelation.
