Believing that the chorus parts are of a complexity even greater than that of the solo parts, Jordi Savall handpicked for this recording an 'academy' of young singers destined for careers as solo professionals. The technical and artistic quality of the result obtained after several weeks of rehearsal is beyond superlatives. Jordi Savall chose to adapt the number of singers in each section of Bach's sublime Mass, in his first recording of a vocal work by Bach, after giving reference versions of the Brandenburg Concertos, the Art of the Fugue and the Musical Offering.

cd book

The 'Missa Salisburgensis à 53 voci' (in comparison, 'Spem in alium' was written by Thomas Tallis for «only» 40 voices) is perhaps the largest-scale piece of extant sacred Baroque music, an archetypical work of the Colossal Baroque. It is a polychoral composition which takes advantage of the multiple organs and various locations available for groups of singers and musicians to perform in Salzburg Cathedral, probably for the 1682 celebrations marking the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the Archbishopric of Salzburg. This stunning recording features Jordi Savall’s ensembles at their best and fully reveals the «splendour» of this masterpiece. A recording of cosmic proportions that Jordi Savall has decided to illustrate with a celestial image of the Helix Nebula. Nothing less.

“Savall rallies his ensembles to scale the exultant heights but still keeps things nimble; the full ensemble sound is warm, vibrant and spacious, while shapely solo voices make clear work of all that counterpoint...Savall is in his element [in Battalia], leading the dance with supple, graceful swing.” The Guardian, 10th September 2015 ****

“an ingenious balancing act between solo voices, choirs and brass, particularly in the ensemble developments of the Gloria and the lengthy Credo, with its shift from angelic high voices to deep, sorrowful ones as the crucifixion weighs heavily.” The Independent, 10th October 2015

“[a] superb new recording … The venue chosen for this recording – the Romanesque chapel of Cardona Castle in Catalonia – also possesses generous reverberation, but Savall knows how to capitalise on it, allowing the music to bloom and blaze but also to withdraw intimately into itself … the overall impression of sumptuousness certainly lives up to the CD’s Baroque Splendour title.” The Telegraph, October 2015

“Savall marshals the music with a keen sensibility to momentum, balance and colour…[his] more organically natural acoustic makes for an easier overall listen [than the Koopman or McCreesh versions] while losing only a little in forthright splendour…[the Mass] makes its awesome point.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2015

“This is Biber in gargantuan mode … superbly recorded. Groups ranging from solo voices with a pair of recorders to the full ensemble complete with brass and drums are thrown across the huge spaces of the chapel with palpable excitement and thrilling effect. The reverberation lasts over five seconds, yet every detail in the small scale passages is crystal clear, and the sheer weight of the full forces is shattering.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2015

“The central work on the disc is the astonishing Missa Salisburgensis, but Savall surrounds this with a range of other works, choral and instrumental, that show this remarkable composer off to a dazzling degree. It's my greatest musical discovery of the year so far...It's very well sung but the effect when the voices, trumpets and drums all combine is breathtaking, and the engineers deserve credit for capturing it so faithfully...Overall, tremendous.” MusicWeb International, February 2016

'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 *****

2 hybrid SACD + DVD (PAL-only)

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foundation of Le Concert des Nations by Montserrat Figueras and myself in 1989, we are now delighted to be able to release on the Alia Vox label an SACD version of Charpentier’s 'Canticum ad Beatam Virginem Mariam' in what was the ensemble’s first recording. This re-release is accompanied by a DVD of the recording of the concert given on 9th October, 2004, at the Royal Chapel at Versailles, and a second SACD featuring the live recording of 'Missa Assumpta est Maria' at that concert, as well as the instrumental interlude 'Nuit' taken from the 'Pastorale In nativitatem Domini canticum' and the new recording of the 'Concert pour quatre parties de Violes' at the collegiate church of Cardona on 7th May, 2013.

This is also an opportunity for us to pay homage to one of the greatest musicians of his generation on the occasion of the 310th anniversary of his death. Let us not forget that, together with Purcell in England, Charpentier brought about the transition from modality to tonality, enriching his works with poignant chromaticism, false relations and dissonances, which more often than not arose from that very conflict between tonality and modality. Thus, the genius of Charpentier retains its relevance and eloquence today, thanks to his highly individual way of incorporating certain transalpine influences into the French tradition; all this, together with his profound spirituality, makes his music a perfect example of the “goûts réunis.” JORDI SAVALL, Seoul, 29th April, 2014

Booklet: English, French, German, Italian, Castilian, Catalan

“The music is unfailingly, gorgeously expressive…The main work in the later recital is the richly scored final Mass setting.” Sunday Times, July 2014

“If you don’t have any of the repertoire on your shelves this is an attractive way to acquire it…all the music is top drawer Charpentier with his rich harmony and lively counter-point.” Early Music Review, August 2014

“Rarely have I seen and heard such a beautifully performed collection of French baroque vocal and instrumental works … Savall directs all from the dessus de viole effortlessly.” Choir & Organ, Autumn 2014

“A treasure map is needed to find one's way through this release. The CDs and DVD...contain performances of some of the most beautifully created, deeply spiritual music Charpentier ever wrote...The performances are all carefully honed and representative of Savall's wider approach to historical music, which is to create versions possibly even more beautiful than originally envisaged.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2014

“there is a beautifully persuasive way with the strings that shows a seemingly innate understanding of how the lilt of French Baroque works, and that spreads across both discs as a tribute to the outstanding nature of Savall’s musicianship...as a tour of Charpentier’s considerable achievement for both court and church, this set is excellent.” MusicWeb International, March 2015
