Lauridsen: Se per havervi oime

Recorded October 2019 at St Philip's Anglican Church

Morten Lauridsen’s ‘Madrigali’, or ‘Firesongs’ have become a pillar of the choral repertory - Lauridsen’s beautiful and expressive settings of texts from renaissance madrigals. These lush pieces have formed the framework of multiple concerts for musica intima. The final movement, ‘Se per havervi, oime’, sets a heartbreaking text with beautiful and warm harmonic writing - as the singers ask “What shall I do, without you who are my every joy?”.
