Soloist of the Escolania de Montserrat Lluís Travesset singing Arvo Pärt's German Language setting of the Pater Noster. I am rarely moved to tears, even more rarely by music. But Lluís Travesset's performance of Pärt's setting brought me very close. Enjoy :-).

Escolania de Montserrat: Cererols’ Salve with Echoes – YouTube

December 1 2009 Escolania

The description that Escolania de Montserrat's YouTube channel give in their description for this video is suitably modest:

Joan Cererols, monk of Montserrat Abbey (1618-1680).

Montserrat Abbey, 2008.

Not all that much is known about him and what little there is comes from Montserrat Abbey's own records.  He entered the monastery as a boy, first as a choirboy and then as a novice and a monk. He was both a talented musician who played the organ, harp, violin and bass string instruments, and  prolific a composer who excelled in composing music for different vocal groupings such solo voices combined with four part choirs and double choirs. He also wrote many Spanish villancicos which are characterised by lively and pleasing rhythms often in triple time. As well as being a musician and composer he was a talented Latin versifier and student of moral theology. He was held in such high regard by his fellow monks that for many years after his death they paid him a tribute unique in the history of Montserrat Abbey – of singing a responsory  on the day of his anniversary. You'll find the video, text, and translation below the fold. Enjoy :-).
