Review by Araner May 8, 2009 (8 of 9 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Savall in the ethnically different musical territory proves his musical excellence, in particular sense of form and diction. Interpretation is very good, viola added cheerfully and sadness, according to the song, King´s escorts very subtle. The recording is excellent, very detailed. Only one condition for the satisfaction of listening to: you must have like the Irish melody, which in larger quantities can someone seem monotonous and doleful. If we find in them but gentle charm and meditative mood, this disc will surely delight.
