Jordi Savall is hugely respected both as an instrumentalist and as a music director across early music. Throughout his career he has made outstanding period instrument recordings, exploring the roots of European Musical tradition, and his masterly playing of the viola da gamba gave immense depth to the success of the film ‘Tous les matins du monde’.
In the 17th Century, battles were celebrated with musical compositions which inspired soldiers with the glory of the past. But battles breed as much grief as grandeur. “Bataglie e Lamenti” is a musical journey which takes listeners through exhilarating and sombre landscapes, masterfully depicted by Savall, Figueras and Hespèrion XX.

Les pièces chantées contenues dans ce nouvel album Alia Vox furent enregistrées pour Archiv Production en 1981 mais ne furent pour ainsi dire jamais disponibles : c'était la fin du vinyl. Le Lamento d'Ariana est l'un des plus beaux enregistrements de Montserrat Figueras : il s'agit du fameux enregistrement de 1989, paru précédemment chez Auvidis. Les pièces instrumentales, quant à elles, ont été captées au cours des derniers mois.
