More review here

Intrigued by the age of music on this album, I invested $ 8 in Music for the Spanish kings, when I found it used bookstore. This record is definitely worth more than $ 8.

In the first half of the first disc devoted to music from 1400, the second half of the disc music from 1500-ies. There are reckless with sufficient (but tasteful), percussion, Pacific reserve with a deep sense of Iberian and songs of all colors is beautiful soprano Montserrat Figueras.

The second CD includes a number of instrumental works of composer Antonio blind de-Cabezn (1510-66). Most of the works on this disc are quiet and introspective. Sometimes, therefore, seems to run along side, but in general it is very pleasant music.

Only two areas of criticism are:
1. More music. Both CDs are a little over 50 minutes, it means that more music could be recorded. This would give more diversity to the second disc may be.
2. There are no lyrics and translations of titles.

If you have ever used the old music, this album is worth investigating. It's not too much Spanish, nor did the Spanish enough. Jordi Savall and Hesprion XX do an excellent job and shows subtle nostalgia of these parts. Games transports listeners hundreds of years ago in the courts of the Spanish kings.

Jordi Savall and Hesprion XX do it again. I 've not yet heard the CD, which I do not like it'. Most of my collection of 15-17th century, the music is in English, French, German and Italian, and I am glad to see the Spanish masters takes its place alongside them.
