Synopsis

Product Description
Ramon Llull was a 13th Century Catalan philosopher, logician, author and Catholic missionary. A member of the Third Order of Saint Francis, he was killed while attempting to convert Muslims in North Africa and later beatified for his work by Pope Pius IX. He is also credited with writing the first major work of Catalan literature. This lush double SACD and hard-bound book documents Llull's travels across the Mediterranean Sea. Jordi Savall, Hespérion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya paint a sonic portrait of a world that hasn't yet chosen between dialogue and conflict, showing how music encouraged the former while history confirmed the latter.
