The ORA Singers were born out of a belief that we are in a second golden age of choral music, matching that of the Renaissance. Of their latest recording, “Desires,” artistic director Suzi Digby writes, “The wealth of compositions using the sensuous and highly charged texts of the Song of Songs is incredibly vast and rich. In the course of compiling this recording, I re-discovered music that I have known for years, was introduced to pieces I didn’t know existed, and was privileged to commission a couple of works to add to this wonderful legacy of compositional material. Taken as a whole, the collection of pieces gathered here presents a varied and enlightening journey through the book of Song of Songs, and through the musical language of different centuries.”
