O Poore Distracted World: English Songs & Anthems
- (Alexander Weimann)
- Format: CD
During 16th and 17th centuries, English music was highly original and unique both in it's forms and it's characteristic mood. The Anthems and Songs on this CD reveal some of the most touching pieces from this era. Under the artistic direction of Matthew White, Les Voix Baroques is an ensemble of vocal soloists that works in conjunction with prominent instrumentalists, ensembles and music directors to present vocal works from, and related to, the Renaissance and Baroque, in formats ranging from traditional concerts to fully staged operatic events.
