This selection of music from Lyrichord spans the ages and the globe and celebrates songs of love, friendship and devotion from all over the world and throughout history.  These songs bear witness that human emotions are eternal and universal, and that when we fall in love today, we feel what men and women felt in centuries past and in every culture.

Beginning back in the 12th and 13th century with the epic songs of the Troubadours of France (“Chanson Courtoise”), to the passionate pavans of the Elizabethan Court we travel through time to the romantic song cycles Johannas Brahms and the sentimental strains of Stephen Foster’s Beautiful Dreamer. Explore themes of love and devotion from around the globe through a diverse collection of songs of courtship and marriage in the traditional music of ancient Persia, China, Italy and India, and those of England, Ireland, Eastern Europe and France. Relax with ragas for meditation and love by Imrat Khan, and experience the devotional chants of Hildegard Von Bingen, sung to perfection by celebrated soprano Norma Gentile,

The vocal artistry of soprano Julienne Baird, countertenor Russell Oberlin and the madrigal group the Saltire Singers are featured, along with the instrumental virtuosity of lutenist Joseph Iadone, harpsichordist Kathryn Cok all the way to the sensual Latin rhythms of the New York Tango Trio.

So, celebrate this season of romance and love with exotic musical gems from the Lyrichord family of labels.
