Featured Video: Jordi Savall

How about a little bit of Renaissance Spanish music? Here’s the great Catalan early music specialist Jordi Savall performing “Las Folías,” a set of variations based on the common early music chord progression along the lines of i-V-i-bVII-bIII-bVII-i-V / i-V-i-bVII-bIII-bVII-i-V-i. If you don’t follow that notation, don’t sweat it, just enjoy the beautiful music.
