The Blossoming Vine

COR16123

£7.99

The second in The Sixteen’s series of Polish music, conducted by Associate Conductor Eamonn Dougan, explores works by three of the Italian maestri who flourished at the court of King Sigismund III during the late 16th and early 17th centuries: Vincenzo Bertolusi, Giovanni Francesco Anerio and Asprilio Pacelli.

The music is all connected to the Virgin Mary with many of the texts taken from the Song of Songs, the Old Testament’s collection of love poetry which has long been applied metaphorically to the Virgin Mary. 

The arrival of the Italian maestri heralded a new dawn for sacred music in Poland.

Eamonn Dougan 

'A really interesting selection of works and the ususal stunning sound of The Sixteen - lovely jubbly!'  Classic FM CD Review

'The Sixteen luxuriate in textures and sonorities, offsetting serene, arching lines with more urgent declamatory passages...basses plummet while sopranos soar into the stratosphere in a swirl of all-embracing sound.'
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE Performance ★★★★ Recording ★★★★

'this most recent release...is gorgeous!'  Early Music Review
