Jordi Savall
Le Concert des Nations
La Capella Reial de Catalunya

In the context of the War of the Spanish Succession, the duty of any composer was to celebrate not only the greatness of a deity in religious pieces, but also the power of their sponsors. Jordi Savall invites us to relive the creation of two dazzling masterpieces of polychoral music : the Missa Scala Aretina by Francesc Valls (one of the last pieces to make overt reference to Guido of Arezzo’s famous hexachord) and the Mass for 2 Choruses and Orchestras by Henry Desmarest. The surface of the music is immediately engaging : it is a beguiling mixture of old and new, full of incidence, with choir, soloists and parts for strings and trumpet. Jordi Savall and his ensembles pay due homage to these masterpieces.
