Notes and Editorial Reviews

During 16th and 17th centuries, English music was highly original and unique both in its forms and its characteristic mood. Melancholy was the prevailing mood everywhere on the continent in those days, but it was particularly characteristic of the work of British intellectuals, writers, and composers — from the most obscure to the likes of Shakespeare, Dowland, Locke, Blow and Purcell. The Anthems and Songs on this CD reveal some of the most touching pieces from this era.

Under the artistic direction of Matthew White, Les Voix Baroques is an ensemble of vocal soloists that works in conjunction with prominent instrumentalists, ensembles and music directors to present vocal works from, and related to, the Renaissance and
Read more Baroque, in formats ranging from traditional concerts to fully staged operatic events. Alexander Weimann is currently artistic director of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, and one of the most sought after ensemble leaders, soloists, and chamber music partners of his generation.
