On November 23rd, 2011, Montserrat Figueras died alia-vox.com/.
She was one of my few goddesses, women who make manifest the best we all are capable of.
This sketch is my meager tribute to an exceptional artist who, with her husband Jordi Savall, formed what must have been the ideal couple, united in love, life, and art.
I can't begin to imagine how devastated he must feel, my deepest sympathy goes to him and their two children (great musicians as well).
The music. "Al jorn del judici" ("EL CANT DE LA SIBIL-LA (Catalunya)") is haunting, it has been with me ever since I first heard it, many years ago.
Available on the ALIA VOX label, reference "AVSA9879 · EL CANT DE LA SIBIL·LA A CATALUNYA" (alia-vox.com/)
Update: absolutely gorgeous tribute to Montserrat Figueras, integrating her recorded voice into this live concert is nothing short of devastatingly moving: youtube.com/watch?v=_OMh0u-ir9w
