Sandström: Four Songs of Love

Recorded October 2019 at St Philip's Anglican Church

Swedish composer Sven David Sandström sets 4 sensual texts from the Song of Songs in a dialogue between the upper and lower voices. Each movement, though incredibly brief, manages to perfectly encapsulate a moment in time, be it waking up next to a loved one, or being in the throes of passion. Sandström's well known extended vocal techniques help to create the atmosphere of tension and release throughout this work.
