Overview

John Rutter conducts the Cambridge Singers and La Nuova Musica in this ravishing recording of European church music from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries.

Focusing on the extraordinary body of choral music produced for liturgical use during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, The Sacred Flame explores the rich and varied ways in which European composers responded to sacred texts.

The collection features familiar classics by Gabrieli, Monteverdi, Palestrina, and Schütz, as well as less widely-known masterpieces by Bach, Buxtehude, Hassler, and Sweelinck.

The Cambridge Singers are at their sensuous and virtuosic best and are joined here for the first time on disc by the instrumentalists of La Nuova Musica, one of the UK’s most exciting early music ensembles. From the Label
