Notes & Reviews:

La Barcha d'Amore is a specially-priced collection of vocal and instrumental music inspired by mythology and 17th-century European love poetry. The album's selections are taken from recordings made between 1976 to 1996 under the labels EMI Electrola, DHM, Astree and Auvidis and from 1998 to 2008 under Alia Vox. Performers include Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall and the ensembles Hespèrion XXI and Le Concert des Nations.

”The most readily recognizable work on the program is Monteverdi’s Lamento della ninfa from the Book 8 collection, an Astree recording about to be reissued on this label, a marvelously expressive performance. Photos of Savall and Figueras dating from 1976 and 2004 add to the attractive retrospective. The sound is remarkably uniform across the years. Anyone who enjoys the artistry of this talented couple will appreciate the juxtaposition of old material in new patterns.”-Fanfare

"... there's a surprising homogeneity of sound and style throughout - testament to Figueras and Savall's innate musicality, artistic vision and spiritual harmony in a lifetime of collaboration and discovery." -BBC Music Magazine ****
