Notes & Reviews:

Francesc Valls is one of the greatest exponents of Hispanic Baroque music. He was choirmaster at the Barcelona Cathedral during the period from 1696-1726, when he was active in this position and until his death in 1747, he served the Cathedral as a retired person. This covered a period of time when the main cathedral was the musical center of Barcelona and indeed, one of the most important musical centers in all of Europe. The two masses presented on this disc were composed in Barcelona at the beginning of the 18th century. Here they are performed by Exaudi Nos according to the criteria and instruments of the time. Three previously unrecorded psalms of a more direct style are also contained on this disc. All the works were composed for the liturgy. Exaudi nos is a vocal-instrumental ensemble devoted to the religious music heritage. It was founded during the 1980's by Joan Grimalt in Vienna and began a second period in Barcelona in 2000. Joan Grimalt is a musician and philologist who was born in Terrassa, but lived in Austria and Germany from 1983-1998. Here he studied piano, composition and conducting.
