Notes & Reviews:

"This production has great sound all through, and performances are stunning... Alia Vox is a model of production values; while others cut, they offer book length notes on glossy pages with color photos, superb notes, texts, and translations in seven languages! There is no finer label today in terms of what they offer to you, the consumer, and should be recognized for it. Bravo to all concerned!" -Steven Ritter of Audiophile Audition (Audaud.com)

"Jordi Savall's discs can always be relied on to widen listeners' musical horizons in the most enjoyable way possible" -The Telegraph

"As we expect of this team, Musica Notturna is sumptuously packaged, diligently researched and superlatively-well performed." -BBC Music Magazine ****
