Notes & Reviews:
The music of Orlande de Lassus was exceedingly popular during the height of the Renaissance. His work combines the emotion of secular music with the text and intention of sacred works. The texts of The Song of Songs are a perfect merging ground for these two worlds, with their biblical origin and their erotic connotations. The sacred and profane feelings mix perfectly in these works. This release also includes de Lassus's Magnificat as well as his Missa super Susanne un jour a.
