5.0 out of 5 stars Another Rare Eye/Ear-opener from Jordi Savall, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Song of the Sibyl (MP3 Download)
Once again Jordi Savall - together with the late-lamented Montserrat Figueras - have opened our ears to a strange musical world that (I should guess) was unknown to the average music-lover; and of course with his habitual masterly musicianship.
Here he directs three versions of the 'Song of the Sibyl'. What is their provenence? Few of us who have roared out "David cum Sybilla" in the Dies Irae, perhaps in Verdi's great Requiem outburst, have bothered to consider these words' relevance, unless perhaps raised in the Catholic faith. Here Savall presents three versions (from Majorca, Valencia and Catalonia) of the Song of the Sybil, which was widely sung formerly across medieval Europe - and especially more recently in Spain - at Matins at Christmas time; and can still be so heard at the Cathedral at Palma de Mallorca.
These are revelatory performances which everyone should try to hear.
