Notes & Reviews:

The great work of Catalan musicologists at the end of the 19th century was started by musicians and folklorists such as Pelai Ibriz, Felip Pedrell, Joan Amades, Francesc Alio and Francesc Pujol, among others. They compiled melodies that were sung all over Catalonia and made an inventory of them, so that they would not be forgotten. This CD, presenting the work of 19th and 20th century Catalan composers and arrangers, contains seventeen Catalan folksongs harmonized for choir and two 'Sardanes' (Catalan dances), which have now become part of Spanish tradition. These are strikingly beautiful works that not only perpetuate an important musical heritage, but which can transcend cultures and bring joy to listeners all over the world during the Christmas season.
