5.0 out of 5 stars SUBLIME INDEED, 5 Dec 2011
This review is from: La Sublime Porte / The Sublime Gate: Voices of Istanbul (Audio CD)
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

Istanbul: Dmitrie Cantemir: ""The Book of Science of Music"" and the Sephardic and Armenian Traditions
Jerusalem: City of two Peaces - Heavenly Peace and Earthly Peace (La Ville des deux Paix: La Paix celeste et la Paix terrestre)
