Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Lionheart is one of America's leading ensembles in vocal chamber music. Acclaimed for its "smoothly blended and impeccably balanced sound" (The New York Times), Lionheart is best known for its interpretation of medieval and Renaissance a cappellamusic, with Gregorian Chant as the keystone of its repertoire. In El Siglo de Oro (The Century of Gold) Lionheart explores rarely performed sacred music of 16th century Spain associated with the tolerant, multi-cultural city of Toledo: from the cosmopolitan sonorities of Cristobal Morales to the playful Andalusian exuberance of Francisco Guerrero's Canciones y Villanescas Espirituales. This concentrated, mystical music thrived in the Old World and gained a wide, accepting audience in the New World.
