Sacred hearts + secret music

(2009) Sacred hearts + secret music

Record type: Music Item


This CD stands on its own merits as an exceptional programme of early sacred music, transcribed for and performed by the etherially beautiful voices of Musica Secreta and Celestial Sirens. However, like their earlier CD (dda25062) it has an added rationale, as the 'virtual sound-track' to the superb new novel 'Sacred Hearts', by Sarah Dunant. The music on the CD refers directly to many of the scenes and events in the book, allowing the reader/listener to more fully absorb themselves into the ancient world and characters so wonderfully portrayed.
