ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Love can be both divinely pleasurable and hellishly tormenting! We feel that the composers of the Renaissance and Baroque periods must have understood this better than anyone because they created some of the most beautifully expressive music (and texts!) on the dual nature of love. We are very much looking forward to recording our interpretations of these pieces as we feel that they are so inherently relatable to everyone! After all, who hasn't sighed for unrequited love, or felt the bitter pangs of heartache or even feared the end of a relationship even as it was beginning? This album, featuring works by composers such as Dowland, Purcell, Caccini, Monteverdi and Strozzi, explores the many aspects of love through gorgeous melodies and exquisite lyrics.

Nola Richardson and John Armato are frequent performers throughout the Baltimore/DC area and further afield. They specialize in Early Music and have found much success in the field, both as a duo and separately.
