The words you will be hearing on this recording are sung in Hebrew, a
language evolved and first sopken in the Holy Land; yet the music which accompanies
these liturgical texts is European through and through, recalling the cultural
ethos not of Palestine but of Venice and Mantua, Avignon and Aix.

douce beaute cd cover These notes are (c) by Joel Cohen.

Along with A Medieval Christmas, this is one of the earliest Camerata recordings (1974) still in print.

"This album comprises three of the rare settings of Hebrew during the Baroque era, by Saladin, Grossi, and Salomone Rossi. They are lovely works performed as well as one could want. Includes: Canticum Hebraicum, Canta Ebraica in Dialogo and Les Cantiques de Salomon. "
