Lägg till önskelista + 318 kr - Ej i lager


The most extraordinary musical journey ever imagined by Jordi Savall !

Following the Christopher Columbus album, this beautiful CD-book (same format as Don Quijote - more than 300 pages including translations in Japanese and Chinese !) enables us to discover hidden treasures from Asia through the life of Francis Xavier, a Spanish pioneering Roman Catholic Christian missionary who co-founded the “Society of Jesus”, the Jesuit Order.

Between 1541 and 1552, Francis Xavier conducted far-reaching expeditions to the East : Mozambique, India, Malacca, Moluccan Islands, China, Japan. He belongs to the first European people who discovered the Japanese civilization and the Roman Catholic Church considers him to have converted more people to Christianity than anyone since St. Paul. Music played a significant role in the evangelization of the countries visited by Francis Xavier : the Jesuits usually adapted Christian texts on local melodies to maximise the impact on the Converted.

In this album, Jordi Savall plays alonside musicians from very different cultures. The Western musical heritage meets African percussions and Japanese traditional instruments - a Première !
This luxury album proves, once more, how deeply Music and History are mixed. Prepare to be converted to the performance of Jordi Savall !
