Notes & Reviews:

This deluxe set, which includes two SACDs and a lavish book, gathers the who's-who of European music of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth centuries. The composers of this period were deeply affected by the Thirty Year's War as well as the War of Spanish Succession. The finest music inspired by this turmoil is vividly performed by Jordi Savall and his ensembles. The set ends with a fantastic performance of Handel's Jubilate Deo. Other featured composers include Lully, Charpentier, Biber, Cabanilles, Jenkins and Blow.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
There are pieces of traditional or popular origins. One may forgive Savall his patriotic biases with the chance to hear at least his second recording of the stirring Catalan national song. Performances are consistently colorful and lively. The sound is quite rich for all that.

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.

Choir & Organ, July/August 2015
Ambitious, magnificent, extraordinary, compelling, fabulous: Jordi Savall's indomitable vision recreates the soundworld of 100 years of conflict, from the 30 Years War to the War of the Spanish Succession. It is simultaneously a history lesson and an extraordinary artistic achievement ... Robin plays with daring, verve and with unflinching attention to colouristic detail. The result is a triumph.

Early Music Review, April 2015
There is some fine music making here.

MusicWeb International, 3rd March 2015
I was left repeatedly amazed that Savall and his performers are so good at such a wider range of repertoire...This isn't just an impressive musical release: it's a whole cultural festival within two covers. Both for its ambitions and for its artistic standards, it deserves to do well.
