Programme Note

The Old Testament Song of Songs contains some of the most beautiful love poetry ever written, and its heady eroticism has inspired superb music from composers across five centuries. Londinium’s programme centres on the rarely-performed, luscious twelve-voiced Le Cantique des Cantiques by Jean-Ives Daniel-Lesur, which is heard alongside sumptuous Renaissance works by Clemens non Papa, Tomás Luis de Victoria and Hieronymus Praetorius, and equally seductive works by two modern masters, Howard Skempton and Francis Grier.
