The common thread in this sensuous programme is settings of words from the Song of Songs. Suzi Digby selects both the ancient and the modern, with pieces by, for example, Brumel and Victoria sitting alongside Gabriel Jackson, Francis Grier and Jonathan Dove. The 14 works recorded here make for a rich and heady mix and we should be grateful to Digby and her superb ORA Singers for what proves to be a fascinating musical journey. Digby coaxes a simply gorgeous, all-enveloping tone from her 18-strong choir that draws in the listener as the CD progresses. Warmly recommended.
