Blue Heron's tremendously popular program of sixteenth-century Spanish music invites the listener to experience the many meanings of the Song, which embrace the wonders of both human and divine love. Twelve singers deployed in various combinations perform sensuous sacred settings of the Song of Songs alongside love songs, by turns sweet, saucy, heartbroken, bitter, swaggering, urgent, and comic. Music by Guerrero, Victoria, Vivanco, Gombert and others.
