This release, Anima sacra, marks a number of firsts. It is the debut album from countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński – born in Poland, trained at the renowned Juilliard School in New York, and winner in 2016 of the Metropolitan Opera’s prestigious National Council Auditions. It also features what are believed to be world premiere recordings of eight Baroque arias. Orliński plumbs the depths of sacred music for a spiritual journey through largely unknown arias from oratorios and motets of the 18th century, breathing new life into music by lesser-known masters.
