“Treasures of Devotion” by the Boston Camerata, under the artistic leadership of singer/director Anne Azéma, features a program of early Renaissance spiritual pieces and related secular songs. These miniature masterworks were intended not for grand cathedrals or public ceremony, but for personal meditation, private chapels and rooms, family houses, and assemblies. Like the examples of intricately carved boxwood devotional objects housed at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, which directly inspired this program, these contemporaneous musical works are precise in their craftsmanship, rich in subtle details, and lead us to wonder and to contemplation.
