Cappella Mariana & Vojtech Semerad

Featuring the music of: Giovanni Pierluigi Da Palestrina (1525 -1594), Jean Lheritier (c.1480-c.1551), Jachet de Mantua (1483 - 1559). Conductor Vojtech Semerad says of this beautiful recording: “Many composers of the past centuries have been attracted by the poetic beauty, complex allegorical meanings and sensuous language of the Song of Songs from the Old-Testament. For us, too, these texts have been a rich source of inspiration, reflection and interpretation guidelines.

In placing Italian Renaissance melodiousness in contrast with the dense structure of the Franco-Flemish polyphony I was hoping to foreground the fascinating tension between the sacred and the secular. The prevailing oscillation of meaning and content of the Song of Songs has been captured differently by various composers.

The Song of Songs is also a story of a man meeting a woman. The love poetry of the Old-Testament Book of Solomon was transformed by the medieval allegorics into the image of Saint Mary which has been recast in our programme into a chequered image of Renaissance music and its beauty. Five men and fathers here sing the narrative that is a celebration of the beauty and gracefulness of a woman but also of the power and merits of the male element. The motif of coming together in our new CD project refers not only to the shared life of a man and woman but is a symbol of the tenth anniversary of the founding of our ensemble. “
