Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Montserrat Figueras, a genuine and beloved superstar of the early music world, passed away on November 23rd, 2011. A few months later, Jordi Savall released a tribute album to his wife entitled The Voice of Emotion. This specially-priced compilation, which featured gems from the Naive and Alia Vox catalogs, was a huge success. Alia Vox now presents a second volume, which further explores the legacy of this great artist. Fourteen tracks of audio are combined with 55-minute DVD portrait (offered on two DVDs to allow for multi-language subtitles). Housed in a beautiful CD-book containing rich illustrations and scholarly notes, this set is a both a superb introduction to Figueras's talents to those unfamiliar with her and a perfect way for fans to rediscover and remember this legendary musician.
