Song of Songs

by Stile AnticoStile Antico

SACD(Super Audio CD - SACD Hybrid)



The beautiful and often erotic poetry of the Song of Songs found some of its most sumptuous settings in the motets of Palestrina, Lassus, Victoria and other Continental 16th-century masters. Sung here by Britain’s “brightest new stars” of Renaissance polyphony, the singers of Stile Antico, these staples of the choral repertory have never before sounded so vital or texturally rich.
