Canticum Canticorum

The Song of Solomon, or Song of Songs (Canticum canticorum), is a unique book in the Hebrew bible. From a religious perspective it has been interpreted in many ways, but taken at face value it is an astonishing (and often erotic) collection of love poetry. It has inspired song settings from many of the greatest choral composers throughout history. The composers represented on this disc encompass a range from late medieval England and Renaissance Italy through Baroque Germany and France, to 20th century Canada. Les Voix Baroques is a vocal chamber ensemble founded by countertenor Matthew White, and including a variable membership of some of the finest early music professionals in the world today.
