Jordi Savall is an exceptional figure in todays music world. For more than thirty years he has been devoted to the rediscovery and performance of neglected musical treasures as a soloist and director of his three ensembles. He has restored an essential repertoire to all those with ears to hear it. Except for the happy few who already revere it, the viola da gamba, is an instrument so refined ...

Editorial 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 and 1996 under the labels EMI Electrola, DHM, Astree and Auvidis and from 1998 to 2008 under Alia Vox. Vocal works include selections from Giulio Caccini's Le Nuove Musiche and the touching Elizabethan lullaby ' Une jeune fillette.' Instrumental selections include Samuel Scheidt's Courant dolorosa, Elizabethan favorites 'Desperada' and 'Greensleeves,' as well as Lully's Rondeau from Le Mariage force and the Chaconne from L'Amour Medecin. Performers include Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall and the ensembles Hesperion XXI and Le Concert des Nations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good music by superb performers February 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The nickname "culturally curious" assigned by Amazon actually fits. I ordered this CD because I am interested in music from all time periods and cultures, and curious about how the old instruments from history sounded. Also, I am a big fan of Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras (his late wife). All but one of the pieces in this CD are selected from previous recordings, but that is not a complaint, since I only have two of them, and the duplication doesn't matter in any case. The advantage is getting a lot of "best in their instrument" performers all on one album. It is truly a star-studded cast. This is a nice mix of vocal and instrumentals from 16th century Europe. The songs are supposed to be somehow related to love, and a few are dreamy sounding, but there are also lively pieces. All have wonderful instrumentation. The Greensleeves is especially outstanding. The sound is good.
