Insiraf - Arab-Andalusian Music

15 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 167 Mb

This recording presents an anthology of magnificent songs from various Mediterranean traditions with a strong Arab influence on performance style. The program features Galician works by Martin Codax (13th c.), the 'Cantigas de Amigo' which are the only songs analogous to the more famous contemporary "Cantigas de Santa Maria" surviving with music in Spain. Berenger de Palou (d.1194) was an Occitan troubadour. Also included are songs in other idioms from medieval Spain, including Sephardic and Andalusian repertory. This CD is a reissue of the "Ondas do Mar" recording from Symphonia label. "This lovely recording succeeds in its goal of transporting the listener back to the lost Iberian world of the 13th century, where a unique culture emerged in the Mediterranean, an amalgamation of Christian, Hebraic and Arabic elements ... This is simply one of the most beautifully engineered recordings I have ever heard. I highly recommend this CD, without reservation, for all audiences." (Continuo) "Stefano Albarello's singing, like the instrumental work, is flexible, sensitive and alive to eastern styles of ornamentation." (Gramophone)
