Female Voices of Oxford Camerata: Let Voices Resound

Aetas Carmen melodiae
Parce Christus spes reorum
Tempus adest floridum
Resonet in laudibus
Cedit hyems eminus
Personent hodie
Jesu dulcis memoria
In dulci jubilo
Florens juventus virginis
Jermiae prophetae
Ave maris stella
Puer natus in Bethlehem

Directed by Jeremy Summerly

Just the fabulous treble voices of the Oxford Camerata sing the important 16th century collection of Finnish songs known as "The Piae Cantiones". In 1592, exactly three hundred years before the founding of the modern Finnish musical establishment, the headmaster of Turku Cathedral School compiled and edited a collection of 74 songs which he entitled "Piae Cantiones" (Devout Church). As a protestant he was at odds with the catholic publisher and this religious tension is evident throughout. The melodies originated at various times and features songs up to five parts. The song now known as Good King Wenceslasis is most enjoyable and this all a cappella recording is certainly interesting. The beautiful, uniform purity of sound the singers achieve make this recording an essential addition to any collection.
