The Celtic Viol II. Treble Viol & Lyra Viol
An Homage to the Irish and Scottish Musical Traditions

Jordi Savall - Treble and Lyra Viols
Andrew Lawrence-King -
Read more Irish Harp & Psalterium
Frank McGuire - Traditional tunable Bodhran

This second volume follows the critically acclaimed and best-selling Volume I, but is far from being only a continuation.

Thanks to different types of viol (treble and lyra) and particularly inspired rhythms coming from Frank McGuire on bodhran (an Irish frame drum), Jordi Savall has enriched his vision of this fascinating repertoire. Andrew Lawrence-King offers a perfect counterpoint on Irish harp and psaltery. This album is organised in seven sets and enables us to discover many sides of a repertoire Jordi Savall explores with the steadiest and most respectful hand.

"Savall and Lawrence- King play these lovely airs and dances with great elegance and respect…there’s no doubting [the performances’] sincerity or the beauty of their execution." -- BBC Music Magazine, reviewing Vol. 1
