SONGS OF THE HEART
A mix of devotion and passion, joy and tears, Songs of the Heart features music by French and Italian composers illustrated by poetry from the Renaissance and Baroque eras in dialogue with jewels of Indian poetry. Similar lyrics celebrate both mystical and profane love in the Songs of Songs from the Bible (in musical settings by Palestrina or Monteverdi) and in Les Amours de Ronsard (music by Anthoine de Bertrand).
We also find parallels in ancient Tamil love poems or in texts by saintly women like Andal, MiraBai or LalLed that explore every facet of Love.
