"Noumi, noumi yaldatii"

We end this month’s feature on Montserrat Figueras with a video in which she sings the beautiful Hebrew lullaby “Noumi, noumi yaldatii” accompanied by her family—Jordi Savall playing viol, Ferran Savall playing theorbo & vocalizing, Arianna Savall playing harp & singing. They are joined by long-time Savall collaborator, percussionist Pedro Estevan. Figueras’ range of material was impressive, & she could give as beautiful a rendition of a Monteverdi aria as a simple lullaby,

Figueras also recorded this lullaby on the Hespèrion XXI album, Mare Nostrum, released on Alia Vox in 2011.

Plans for the blog in March are a bit up in the air, but we will continue with the Sunday music series, so please check back next week!
