Overview

To coincide with the 500th anniversary of the birth of Saint Francis Borgia, Fourth Duke of Gandia, Jordi Savall and Alia Vox offer this visually lavish and artistically comprehensive multidisc set entitled Dinastia Borja (The Borgia Dynasty). It features a broad selection of music of the time, including works by composers such as Isaac, Dufay, and Morales.

For five centuries, scholars have studied and debated the role of the Borgias in Renaissance history. Although their name is synonymous with Papal corruption and they were undoubtedly malevolent and immoral, as patrons of the arts, the Borgias were also instrumental in the period's explosive growth of culture.

The fascinating story of their life and legacy (both good and evil) still has the power to inspire the imagination. With this dramatic historical and artistic backdrop, Savall and his fellow musicians draw listeners into the fascinating musical world of the time, shedding new light on this unique (and at times bloody) era in Western history.
