“The virtuoso violistes of Hespèrion XX underscore the stark melancholy of Purcell's fantasias in these intense, poetic readings from 1994.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2008 *****

“Alia Vox's reissue of the Hesperion XX recording reminds me of how I was taken through this amazing music by that great Purcellian John Beckett, his expression ecstatic, a glass of wine in his left hand, his right hand pointing out crunching dissonances that make Monteverdi seem cautious in comparison. Listening to these rich performances, you wonder yet again what the "English Orpheus" would have achieved had he lived longer than his 36 years.” Sunday Times

'Pro Pacem' consists of 23 pieces from the Alia Vox catalogue with repertoire from 5 centuries of music; of Gilles Binchois (XVth Century) to Arvo Pärt (new recording).

The cover art was designed by Catalan painter Antoni Tapiès shortly before his death in February. The 1000-page book features texts by renowned writers, like the French scholar Edgar Morin. This is an essential contribution by Jordi Savall about the world as it is and as it should be, thanks to the power of music.

“The period instrument specialists from Savall's Hespèrion XXI and voices from La Capella Reial de Catalunya lay down beautifully simple settings for guest vocalists from various cultures, notably the gorgeous tones of Montserrat Figueras.” The Independent, 29th December 2012 *****

“An ambitious programme flows, from cantorial invocations and Gregorian chant, to motets by Binchois, Josquin, Guerrero and Pärt, stretching across 19 centuries of conflict. The common cause is peace, as expressed in song, painting and essay.” The Independent on Sunday, 16th December 2012 *****
