Matthew Venner, countertenor; Mark Dobell, tenor; Angus Smith, tenor; Donald Greig, baritone
Exploding with light and color, the Central Library’s magnificent high-domed rotunda is a breathtaking entryway to the early cultural spirit of Los Angeles. In this resonant setting, hear ravishing chansons, motets and madrigals filled with floral and botanical imagery to illustrate both earthly and heavenly love. “The Orlando Consort’s performances are staggeringly beautiful” (The Times, London) . "Everything is immaculately tuned, balanced and phrased" (Gramophone).
