Notes & Reviews:

One of Jordi Savall's greatest recording successes was the album La Lira d'Espéria, released in 1994 on the Astrée label. La Lira d'Espéria II focuses on Galicia, a Spanish region with rich musical traditions - including a Celtic one – and some remarkably well preserved manuscripts dating from the Middle Ages. As with volume one, Savall's performances here are full of fantasy and color. Accompanied by percussionist Pedro Estevan, he plays a vielle, a rebec and a rebab.

CD Review, 18th October 2014
La Lira d'Esperia II: Galicia is what it says on the sleeve, rustic playing, a pleasingly resonant SACD recording and, as ever, copious notes and illustrations.

Early Music Review, 20th February 2015
He [Savall] comes up with something that not only seems very true to the spirit of the older music, but is great listening ... As you would expect, the playing is fantastic, spontaneous, brilliant ... Savall encourages us to consider the most ancient of our musical traditions in the context of living folk music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The title of this collection can be loosely translated "The Lyre of the Western Lands", and it is a sequel to Jordi Savall's earlier recording, "The Medieval Fiddle" (July/Aug 1996: 263). For this collection Savall again uses a number of medieval or folk fiddles and plays instrumental versions of melodies taken from the Cantigas de Santa Maria and traditional Galician folk music. His judicious selection of melodies, alternation of instruments, and the inventive percussion accompaniments by Pedro Estevan and David Mayoral make this a very pleasant recording.
