Notes & Reviews:

"The SACD church sound (sampled on a good conventional stereo) produces an extremely unusual effect of intimacy; the quiet male singers take the music at an almost conversational level, and even though you can lose them in the strings, the sound is striking. The Song of Songs is thought to have been an allegory for God's love, but who knows? The idea of collecting Baroque works inspired by it both brings out rarely heard pieces and holds them together in a fascinating way. Highly recommended." -All Music Guide
