Notes & Reviews:

Following the success of their outstanding début, Upheld By Stillness, Susan Digby leads ORA in a ravishing new recording that begins and ends with two contrasting settings of the Miserere mei (Psalm 50, Vulgate). Over the centuries, this text has inspired reflections by many Christian composers, none more influential than those by Girolamo Savonarola. Much of Refuge from the Flames is devoted to his extraordinary legacy. Featured is Savonarola's meditation on the psalm Infelix Ego, written shortly before his execution. ORA performs it here in William Byrd's justly famous setting, and in a newly commissioned masterpiece by the Latvian composer Eriks Ešenvalds.
