Notes & Reviews:

CORO continues its work with the rising stars of the early music world on this brand new recording by two of The Sixteen's principal members - soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and theorbo & lute player David Miller. Thomas was the soloist on the incredibly successful Faure Requiem recording, released on CORO in 2008. Ravish'd with Sacred Extasies explores some of the most beautiful Elizabethan lute songs, ranging from Dowland's small cluster of late devotional songs to Purcell's flowery and luscious settings.

"An effortless soprano." - BBC Music magazine

"If you think of lute songs as secular repertory, think again...Elin Manahan Thomas and lutenist David Miller illuminate this music's subtleties, infusing their reading with warmth and intimacy...this is a lovely contribution to recorded lute song." -BBC Music Magazine ****

"Manahan Thomas has as keen an ear for the music of language as for the language of music while Miller...brings to the table a highly developed understanding of dramatic and musical rhetoric...Throughout, Manahan Thomas fits the sound to the sense...whilst never allowing either diction, intonation or purity of tone to suffer." -International Record Review
