"I fell in love with the charms of a woman"...

Here is something for everyone who knows of the late Ancient Music soprano Monserrat Figueras or read my post devoted to her memory (Nov. 2012) Monserrat is survived by her husband Jordi Savall, musician and educator and two children, also musicians.

A truly enchanting piece sung by beautiful Ariana Savall, Monserrat's daughter, a signer and a harpist.

A comment on YouTube:
actually, Yo M'enamori d'un aire is a folk song in Ladino, the language of the Sephardic Jews. It is based on Old Spanish and is written in the Hebrew script traditionally. It translates to "I fell in love with the charms of a woman"
