Top Customer Reviews
But this album, recorded a couple of years earlier in three distinct sessions, is more about the development of the approach which works so well on the second album. Initially disappointing through the first half or so (was this the same man?), we kept listening. Suddenly the style of the second album magically appears and from then on it's mostly all good. We both independently thought exactly the same about it so there must be something that objectively changes at that point, the style sort of 'clicks'.
If you haven't heard the second one and you like medieval/renaissance and folk music, this is a really interesting listen. If you're a fiddler it's particularly worthwhile because of the open tunings of the viol (I want one) which makes me, at least, reassess the virtues of different tunings for different material. He gets effects and sounds you'll not get any other way.
Not one for the hardcore hi-velocity folkies, perhaps. But give it a go (and perhaps try vol 2 first).

Nice selection of traditional Celtic music brilliantly played by Savall and Lawrence-King. Some are old, some new and some interesting sleeve notes on the derivations. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Roger Hardy
Jordi Savall adds nothing to either musical field with this pointless recording. Neither traditional Irish/Scottish music, nor the gamba repertoire. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Anthony O'Brien
I expected a little bit more from this CD. Quite good, but could be more interesting and more Celtic the way I expected it to be.Published on 10 Mar. 2014 by Mrs. H. Provodenko
This music is beautiful, a brilliant blend between classical and folk. Wonderful stuff that will be enjoyed by people at both ends of the spectrum.Published on 4 Mar. 2012 by Cantab
Let me express directly that I am a huge fan of Jordi Savall AND Celtic music. Somehow these two didn't blend well in this CD. Read morePublished on 15 Dec. 2011 by Erdem Karaadam
