A Cal fuster hi ha novetat

Joan Josep Mayans releases his second album, A Cal Fuster hi ha novetat, including fourteen Christmas poems and three traditional carols. There are poems from Manent, Garcés, Salvat-Papasseit, Teixidor, Verdaguer, Maragall, Villangómez, Carner, Guerau de Liost, Pere Quart and J.V. Foix.
Mayans’ music —with a happy balance between melodic clarity and servitude to the text— gives us the clean voice of poets and offers an intimate look at Christmas, deep and nuanced.

Mayans sings accompanying himself on the guitar and hurdy-gurdy. In Foix’s poem Si l’altra nit jo cavalcava al ras he also plays Renaissance wind instruments. The cellist Eva Curtó collaborates on most of the songs. The recording was made by Xavier Batlle.
