About

It is a little known fact that most Alia Vox albums were recorded between 1 and 4 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's short but intense history. Not just an 'anniversary CD', it is a fascinating musical journey, based not only on existing material, but also on unreleased recordings (Charpentier - CD2 track 5) and on future albums.

Recordings from the Astrée catalogue are also included in this definitive overview of a major component of Jordi Savall's creative process: the night.
