Overview

Invocation à la Nuit: Musica Notturna

Did you know that most Alia Vox albums were recorded between 1:00 AM and 4:00 AM? Not only because of tight recording schedules, but also because the night creates a very special quality of silence. This double album is the best possible tribute to Alia Vox' short but intense history. Not just an 'anniversary CD,' Invocation to the Night is a fascinating musical journey, based not only on existing material, but also on unreleased recordings and on future albums (including selections from an upcoming project entitled Jerusalem). Recordings from the Astrée catalogue are also included in this definitive overview of Jordi Savall and company's stunning creative output. Of course, Invocation to the Night features the deluxe packaging and beautiful artwork that we have come to expect from Alia Vox. From the Label
