Notes & Reviews:
A cornerstone of the Bible, this program from Jordi Savall features three masterpieces based on the Dixit Dominus that enable us to experience the full maturity of his ensembles. The vivid orchestral colors, the ideal spacing of the instruments, the infallible virtuosity of the choir. This performance brings out both the delicate and the bold within these works establishing a new standard for recordings of 18th Century music.
Gramophone Magazine, January 2017
The performances of all three pieces have an overall character that contrasts with the tendency these days for hard-driven interpretations... an individualistic and essentially musical approach, as one might expect from Savall.
