Zefiro Torna and Vocalconsort Berlin revisit the musical history of the Song of Songs, focusing on works by De Machaut, Monteverdi, J.C. Bach and many others. Tunisian singer-performer Ghalia Benali infuses this sensual repertoire with Arabic songs of longing and nostalgia. This success production interweaves the old and the new, the East and the West.
