Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Jordi Savall devised this music for Caravaggio exhibition in Barcelona... A haunting 'Cantus Caravaggio' recurs throughout, opening and closing with austere flute. Savall's original contributions include an inventive passacaglia, as well as a terrifying quasi-funeral march, and pieces based on extant 17th-century music chosen particularly for its intense dissonance and seeming modernity... SACD sound greatly enhances the immediacy of winds, strings, and Ferran Savall's bleak voice, in this extraordinary conception." -BBC Music Magazine *****
