Jerusalem is simultaneously a Jewish, Arab, and Christian city -- a city of pilgrimage, exile, and refuge. With this new release from Alia Vox, maestro Jordi Savall makes a powerful and timely statement. The project, the result of many years of fastidious research by Savall and Israeli musician Yair Dalal, aims to present many aspects of this city through the musical traditions of all three monotheistic religions. By bringing together the music of these seemingly disparate cultures without blurring their boundaries, Savall and Dalal demonstrate that they are in fact intimately related. To help make his point, he has collected a team of star musicians from many cultures. To supplement SavallÕs own groups, Hesp�rion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, Savall and Dalal are joined by sufi ensemble Al-Darwish and musicians from Armenia, Greece, and Turkey. This amazing two super-audio CD set is accompanied by a 400 page book (in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Catalan, Hebrew, and Arabic) that features discussions about the history, cultural background, and other aspects of the musical selections. Ultimately, Savall and his colleagues hope that the power of music will be a force for peace and understanding in this troubled part of the world. This Hardback is in Near Mint condition.
