Jordi Savall is hugely respected both as an instrumentalist and as a music director across early music. Throughout his career he has made outstanding period instrument recordings, exploring the roots of European Musical tradition, and his masterly playing of the viola da gamba gave immense depth to the success of the film 'Tous les matins du monde'. In the 17th Century, battles were celebrated with musical compositions which inspired soldiers with the glory of the past. But battles breed as much grief as grandeur. "Bataglie e Lamenti" is a musical journey which takes listeners through exhilarating and sombre landscapes, masterfully depicted by Savall, Figueras and Hesperion XX. Recorded in 1982, this is Savall's only recording for the Archiv Label

The first version was written for a convent in Majorca; its reconstruction includes a drone accompaniment and solo instrumental interpolations before each verse and before each repetition of the refrain, with verses performed mainly by a soloist and refrains by women's ensemble, in unison or two parts. The second version is from a tradition in Valencia. Its reconstruction is similar, except that it uses three different 4-part harmonizations of the refrain, sung by a men's ensemble
