Notes & Reviews:

Debut double disc album by The Dublin Drag Orchestra - a sensational new counter-culture early music group. Viva Frida! Is a musical tribute to the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Duos, trios, and instrumental music from 17th century Mexico featuring La Vida Callada (The Unspoken Life) with music by Clara Sanabras & lyrics by Kahlo. Motion of the heart features a selection of rarely performed airs, duets, choruses and instrumental music from 17th century England by the great composers of the early English baroque. The album celebrates and glorifies the human heart and the pain and pleasures of love.
