Several fine ensembles, soloists and conductors contribute to this collection of works on the theme of love, all of which reflect Roxanna Panufnik’s preoccupation with the importance of interfaith understanding in a troubled world. Stand-out pieces for me are Zen Love Song, combining a 15th-century Japanese text with a traditional lullaby, performed by Voces8 and accompanied by Loli Day on a shakuhachi flute; and a Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in which the Latin texts of the Ave Maria and the Nunc Dimittis, so important to the Roman Catholic tradition, are effectively woven through the English texts used in Anglican worship, performed by the Exultate Singers.
