“There have been anthologies of lullabies before, but surely few that have ranged as widely as this one...Montserrat Figueras spins beautiful lines from exotic material” Gramophone Magazine

“there's an other-worldly, timeless quality to the voice that seems to encapsulate that strange, semi-conscious place before deep sleep where anything is possible in the imagination...In fact the whole disc is spell-binding, from ancient Sephardic and middle-eastern tradition, through 16th century England to Pärt in 2002” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 1st April 2003

This set gathers 2 albums released in 1990 and 1994.

Each of them definitely established Montserrat Figueras as one of the best performers of Claudio Monteverdi’s vocal music. At this time, she developed an innovative style of interpretation, characterised by great fidelity to historical sources, combined with an extraordinary creative and expressive power, that has exerted a decisive influence on the whole historical music movement.

Vocal music before 1800 required a new technical and stylistic approach capable of restoring to the beauty and emotion of the voice, that most human of all forms of expression, the necessary balance between singing and declamation, with an emphasis on the poetic and spiritual dimension of the text.

She is accompanied by Jordi Savall on CD1 and Ton Koopman on CD2.

Suite Celta


Arianna Savall (vocal, triple harp, gothic harp, celtic harp), Petter Johansen (vocal), Ferran Savall (vocal and theorbo), Javier Mas (12-strings guitar and lute), Mario Mas (guitar), Bjørn Kjellemyr (double bass), Dimitri Psonis (santur, bouzuki) & Pedro Estevan, David Mayoral (percussion)

"Based on a taoist tale (Prince Peiwoh playing a wondrous harp, whose stubborn spirit should be tamed but by the greatest of musicians), this album represents a breathing-in of various traditions which have helped me to create and give expression to my musical world, and one of the sources on which I have drawn most deeply is early music and the art of improvisation: an infinite source of inspiration. From the time that I began to compose and sing songs, it became more and more natural to me to accompany myself on the triple harp, and I was fascinated by the depth and subtlety of the Italian Baroque harp. It has a rich, enveloping sonority which is unlike that of any other harp.There are moments on the album when we hear a small Gothic harp, with its warm, remote and yet direct sound; and the most ancient of them all is a Celtic harp, with its magical, ancestral sounds. Peiwoh brings together the various languages, colours and sounds that I heard as a child growing up in Switzerland, at home with my parents, friends and other musicians.And each of them expresses and encapsulates a different part of myself. Each language has its own rhythm and melody, which it modulates in its own distinct way, influencing and inspiring the character and style of the song. Poetry is one of the essential aspects of this musical journey. Peiwoh leads us to the process of maturing, which has sometimes been painful and dramatic: life contains within it "little deaths", as in the poem by García Lorca (Song of the little death). In his short but intense poemMy heart, die or sing, Juan Ramón. Jiménez shows how music and life overcome fear, giving us the courage to walk on, as if our awareness of the proximity of death gave us a heightened awareness of life and its infinite possibilities."
