Love never sounded as beautiful as in the Song of Solomon. From the beginning, the Bible text was an analogy of the bond between man and God. Later, the exuberantly sung bride was equated with Mary. The poetry and richness of images of the Song of Songs have intoxicated numerous composers; Cappella Mariana discovered text settings in the oeuvres of Morales, Victoria and Guerrero, among others, that mix contrapuntal precision with madrigalistic expressiveness.
