Journey to the East links two unique figures across the centuries: acclaimed early-music interpreter Jordi Savall and St. Francis Xavier, the 16th-century Jesuit missionary who traveled from the court of Lisbon to Mozambique, India, Malaysia, Japan, and China. In this epic musical journey, narrated by John Douglas Thompson, Savall directs Hespèrion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and guest musicians as they trace the rich array of percussion, melodic instruments, and vocal styles Francis Xavier would have encountered on his route.
“Jordi Savall is one of those elect musicians whose curiosity, scholarship, probity and expressiveness give pleasure in everything he plays.”– Chicago Tribune
“Vividly performed, and their variety is beguiling.”– Guardian (U.K.) on Journey to the East
