This CD of songs from Spain and Norway is an intriguing and compelling marriage of folk songs with an exquisite accompaniment of folk instruments including the Hardingfele and gothic harp. There is a most moving dedication to Arianna's mother Montserrat Figueras from whom Arianna learnt the songs featured on this CD. Highly recommended.

I can do little but echo the existing (high) recommendation. This self-styled journey linking the Mediterranean and the North Sea indeed sounds like a cross between Norway's Trio Mediaeval and Amina Alaoui's recent "Arco Iris" (to whose title "Hirundo Maris" alludes). Arianna Savall has a beautiful voice worthy of her late mother to whom the album is dedicated and she and Petter Udland Johansen lead a creation spanning the purity of opener "El Mestre" to the richly evocative "El Mariner", complete with sounds of the waves and the intertwining of male and female voice to the otherwordly textures on medieval ballad Bendik og Årolilja. While the album might outstay its welcome for some, it is beatifully conceived, planned, executed and presented and deserves much greater recognition that it has received to date.

Have seen this music performed live after hearing the CD. A drive of 400 km's: well worth it.... The CD has hasn't been far out of reach....

Fantastic fusion of sound from the north (Norway) and south (Catalonia). Great voices and sounds excellent. This CD is dedicated to the memory of Montserrat Figueras, Arianna Savall mother.
