A noble perspective,
This review is from: The Celtic Viol - An Hommage to Irish and Scottish Musical Traditions - Jordi Savall (Audio CD)
Nobody in my lifetime has contributed more to our knowledge of British viol music than Jordi Savall, to say nothing of his many other remarkable achievements. He approaches the Celtic tradition from the deepest knowledge of the long traditions of British and other European string music. These marvellous performances mark his loving respect for Scottish and Irish traditional music, here properly appreciated in its wide-ranging geographical and historical perspective. They help us appreciate how fortunate is the survival of so much Celtic folk music, and are always nimbly alert to the direct rapturous connections between such music and life at its most joyous and tragic. This was for me much the most moving new record of 2009.
