Notes & Reviews:

The 'Song of Songs' stands apart from its biblical surroundings as one of the supreme love poems of world literature, a celebration of erotic love in the form of a dialogue between a bridegroom and his bride, invoking all the senses, the fragrance of wine, blossoms, fruits and spices. Ranging widely over five centuries, from the relative asperity of John Dunstable to the lush exoticism of Jean Yves Daniel-Lesur, this cherry-picked assortment of sweetmeats is given exultant life by Mike Brewer and Laudibus.
