For approximately a thousand years, from 700 to 1797, the city of Venice played a pre-eminent role in the Mediterranean and in the history of the world. Situated in a lagoon fed by two rivers where a number of small, precarious settlements had grown up along the coast, Venice was founded by the Byzantines, who made it a crossroads between the East and the West. This essentially aquatic city, with its network of canals, attracted merchants of many different origins who worked towards a common goal: to create a thriving hub of business, exchange and interests.

«The characterful instrumental playing of Savall and his colleagues is reflected throughout in the vocal numbers, where colour and drama are prized above beauty, singers captured as though overheard by an anthropologist rather than engineered by a producer. The effect is wonderfully immediate – a snapshot not just of a city but of a spirit of music-making that Savall has pioneered. Many decades since he first began, Savall may have spawned a new generation of imitators, but this musical original is still showing us all how it is done» (Alexandra Coghlan in Gramophone).

«Uma gravação em concerto, um momento musical imperdível pelo retrato singular de um património histórico e musical imensamente rico, pela qualidade interpretativa e pelo produto eminentemente artístico que, uma vez mais, Jordi Savall e um núcleo de colaboradores de grande categoria em diferentes áreas (investigação musicológica, conceptualização de projectos musicais, historiografia e prática performativa), conseguiram com grande mestria conceber» (Tiago Manuel da Hora in XpressingMusic).
