This reissue in the Heritage series from 1988 enables us to hear Montserrat Figueras singing the repertoire she embodies like nobody else: traditional Catalan songs. This performance is the natural continuation
of her exploration of the great works connected to Catalonia, e.g. the Song of the Sybil or the Red Book of Montserrat (Gregorian manuscript).
On this shore of Mediterranean Sea, traditional and ．classical・ repertoires are connected in a very intimate way. This album is a landmark of in the career of Montserrat Figueras: her innovative style of interpretation, characterised by great fidelity to the historical sources, combined with an extraordinary creative and expressive power, sounds at its best.
The HERITAGE collection, launched by Alia Vox in 2007 with the re-release of Monteverdi・s Vespro della Beata Vergine (AVSA9855), aims to offer a fresh vision of the recordings that Jordi Savall, Montserrat Figueras and their ensembles Hespèrion XX, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nations made under the Astrée label between 1977 and 1996. This unique discographic legacy of almost 70 albums, which include the most emblematic recordings of the early music renaissance, will be systematically remastered and edited with the meticulous care that has been Alia Vox・s hallmark since the label was founded in 1998. Both past and present productions featuring the Alia Vox artists・ performances will thus be available under a single banner, allowing listeners to measure the breadth and continuity of
their work over more than 30 years.
