Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing a brand new recording by two of The Sixteen’s principal members - soprano, Elin Manahan Thomas and theorbo and lute player, David Miller.

The seventeenth century devotional songs on this recording were written against a backdrop of furious historical dramas and lurching tides of fortune. The songs chosen reflect these assorted times and contexts, and are accordingly diverse.

Ravish’d with Sacred Extasies (a quote taken directly from Playford’s ’harmonia Sacrae’) explores some of the most beautiful Elizabethan devotional songs ranging from the doctrinally eloquent to the thologically unsteady, from the spare and the restrained to the opulent and the overblown, from Dowland’s s,all cluster of lare devotional songs to Purell’s flowery and luscious settings.

"..highly recommended."
