AllMusic Review by

This is half of what was once a double-LP set by one of the best contemporary classical vocalists in the andalus style that goes back to the idiom brought by refugees from the collapse of Muslim Spain. Here he sings a nouba (vocal suite) in Maya mode, whose title in English is "Wedding Morning," backed by string and percussion orchestra. Thorough French notes accompany the release.
