Notes & Reviews:

With this reissue of Monteverdi's 'Vespers' - an acclaimed 1989 recording helmed by Jordi Savall - Alia Vox launches a new series. Alia Vox Heritage will be the new home for the finest recordings that Maestro Savall had made between 1977 and 1997 for the Astree (later Naive) label. In this new multichannel remastering, the beloved 'Vespers', recorded at the site of its 1610 premiere in Mantua, Italy, sounds simply stunning and looks gorgeous in its deluxe digipac presentation.

"Typically, Savall and his vocal consort and instrumentalists achieve more achingly and lingeringly beautiful moments than anyone else" -Gramophone Magazine
