The Celtic Viol is set to be the most successful demonstration yet of Jordi Savall's extraordinary technique and depth of feeling for the indivisible oneness of music, be it written or oral, "classical" or "folk. An admirer of Celtic music for thirty years, in recent times Savall has worked his way through all the major 17th, 18th and 19th century collections of Scottish and Irish music, choosing from over 10,000 pieces the 29 heard here. Savall's knowledge of Renaissance and Baroque music, and his experience with Spanish, Arabic, Jewish and East Asian musical idioms, all contribute to the extraordinary success of this unique project. Savall is accompanied only by the harp of Andrew Lawrence-King, a long-time Savall associate and himself a legendary figure in early music. The Celtic Viol comes packaged with a glossy 144 page booklet.
