Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alia Musica was formed in 1985 to interpret and perform Judeo-Spanish music from the Middle Ages, based on their own analysis and the insights of musicology. Here is an intriguing reissued collection derived from ancient musical traditions where groups of men sing a variety of religious texts, including polyphonic greetings to the "Virgen de la Aurora", from vespers until dawn.

"10/10 recording, 10/10 music. Another compelling release from the excellent ensemble, Alia Musica. They are genuinely dedicated musicians, who continue to bring early music enthusiasts a rich repertoire of the rare and unusual, and with beautifully sympathetic engineering, this release has to be a top recommendation.” – Hi-Fi+
