Emotion isn't quite a good enough adjective for a voice that would have had the crowd on its feet every time had Figueras been a rock musician. This is raw soprano - once heard, never forgotten, and this double CD is a terrific sampler of her wide repertoire, one that stretched from Renaissance to traditional Catalan and Sephardic music. If you have never heard the lady sing, start here - just remember that I warned you... if you get hooked, you could end up getting lost in her back catalogue.
As the previous reviewer has said, her voice is/was so, so clear. My three year old listened to the opening track with me and told me it was like water.
It is not a CD to listen to in a noisy environment, nor if you are in a hurry since alongside her voice, the music almost pulls you in to follow each not and where it is going. It is also very evocative of a long passed time.
