Francesc Valls (1665-1747) was a major figure among Catalan composers of the Baroque and made an important contribution to the theoretical thinking of his day. He left an extensive output of works; at least 9 masses, 9 Magnificats, a set of litanies and numerous motets, which usually involve double chorus, continuo and orchestral parts. He also left a sizeable number of villancicos and other popular pieces.

This CD, previously available as SY5215 on the Symphonia label, from 2004, includes seven “tonos divinos” (sacred popular songs).

"Their religious texts are beautifully sung, with lively accompaniment by violins, theorbos, guitars and percussion ... An excellent recording." - Early Music Review

The performances are first-rate, a group of four excellent vocal soloists being accompanied by an instrumental ensemble with an absolutely thrilling continuo section; they are not afraid to grasp hold of the music and turn in passionate, rhythmically exciting renditions.” - Early Music
