In memorium Montserrat Figueras

Program: #11-50, Air Date: 12/5/11

NOTE: All of the music on this program comes from the recordings made by Montserrat Figueras with her husband Jordi Savall. As Fr. Jerome Weber wrote: "Some performers have a personality that goes beyond any excellence in performing or interpreting. I always thought that Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall were the most extraordinary persons and human beings. I was convinced that they are genuine, honest, devout, warm people."

As for myself, I had the honor of corresponding and later working some with this extraordinary couple. From their earliest recordings, they have been part of Millennium of Music, and their contribution to early music cannot be calculated, but appreciated and loved now and forevermore.
