Product Description

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.

This music will transport you to a place of serenity and beauty. I have been listening to it in my car and I swear it keeps my blood pressure down and eliminates any tendency toward road rage.
Be sure and read the book Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant. This music was her inspiration for the book.

I learned about this music when I read the book Sacred Hearts, by Sarah Dunant (which I highly, highly recommend with or without the music). I sang classical music in my youth and listening to this CD made me feel almost light-headed. The music, voices, and arrangements are so lovely, and the history behind this music is quite incredible.

I got the lead for this CD from reading a book by Sarah Dunant. The music is beautiful and speaks of the Holy in a moving way.
