Music of another era played on authentic instruments brings together the genius of St Colombe, Maran Marais,Couperin and of course Lully. Jordi Savall is in his element with this CD taken from the movie Tous les matins du mond; a though provoking, spellbinding film full of the rich, glourious sounds of the five stringed voil. An instrument that exudes melancholoy, passion and heartbreak. Just listen to "The Dreaming Girl."
The instrumental pieces are interspersed with young, innocent voices singing a traditional french ballad adding pathos to the CD. Coupled with the wonderful soprano solo, this evocative album is guaranteed to haunt you. If you chose nothing else, chose this.Experience the joy and pain of pure sound in the music of Tous les Matins du monde. Do not be ashamed to cry - I wasn't.
