"I love Caravaggio's paintings. I've had a great time hunting them down in the churches of Rome and viewing them. They are works of heart-searching beauty, with their sombre shading and meditative sorrow. Jordi Savall's piece does them justice; it is very beautiful music, darkly harmonic and though it contrasts from movement to movement within the Statia, all is integrated in form and theme. The viol da gamba voice is especially heart-rending. I find myself hungering for Lachrimae Caravaggio and listening to it every day. Studying Caravaggio's prints while listening is a totally satisfying aesthetic experience."
