5.0 out of 5 stars EXTRAORDINARY!! August 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I own nearly 100 titles of Jordi Savall (Montserrat's husband), and continue to purchase new releases on his Alia Vox label. Everything in which the two of them are involved is uniformly excellent, even if a particular disc is not always my cup of tea, but sometimes there are recordings that are absolute standouts, of which this is indeed one. Just skimming through the tracks, I knew this CD was special, and listening to it in its entirety confirms that impression. This is music to be savored, music to be heard when you need refuge, an exceptional programme of lovely pieces for an exceptional voice, medieval to renaissance. Encased in a virtual hardback book of words and art, this CD is beyond even the typical high accolades Savall and Figueras merit. Do NOT miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Light of Women's Songs April 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The commentary on this CD opens with the most appropiate acknowledgement. Montserrat declares that "to thank others is to recognise we are not alone". Her statement is in recognition of the many roles every woman must play in life. Those roles are honoured by the grandest voice available to offer paeans for their variety and intensity.

Any attempt to describe Montserrat's vocal abilities can only show the paucity of language. As she takes us through the history of women in song, the spectrum of sublime joy through unfulfilled love to lamentations of forced marriages and forced religious dogmas. The artist conveys us through a heart-tugging array of emotions in more than a dozen steps, each a tribute to women and to Montserrat's soaring voice. Her presentation has the great advantage of seeming to come from a back garden or near-by meadow than from a studio stage. She brings an intimacy to her performances few other vocalists can match.

As with any such collection, setting your player to "Random, Repeat All" will provide endless joy as you listen to each outstanding rendition. Whether in sequence or "shuffled", the quality of her voice and the expertise of the ensemble backing her, delights the listener with the variety and emotion evoked. In some of the tracks, Montserrat is joined by other voices, Tina Aagaard and the Savalls' daughter Arianna. Among the outstanding pieces is yet another version of the canto Sibila, the chants of the Sybils which the team has rendered in several CDs performed in various locations. This one is particularly well performed, as might be done in a small chapel.

No disc by Montserrat and her consort group is ever a poor investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific disc July 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific disc of songs celebrating women from 900 to 1600AD. They are fabulously lovely, extremely haunting in places and beautifully performed.

This sort of project is one of the things that Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall did best - gathering obscure ancient music into a fascinating programme and bringing it to life beautifully for the rest of us. Savall, of course, is a great scholar and performer of early music and in Montserrat Figueras, in his late wife, he had a superb singer and fellow scholar to share these projects with. She is on top form here with her voice sounding stunning and her performances filling the songs with meaning and making them really glow. The instrumental work is, of course, equally good and the whole effect is something really special.

The disc has Alia Vox's usual beautiful and lavish packaging with very full notes (although they do verge on the pretentious at times, I'm afraid) and complete texts with translations. The recorded sound is excellent, and it's a cracking disc all round. This stands as a fitting memorial to a very fine singer and artist who has left a fine legacy of great work - this disc included. Warmly recommended.
