About

Since its debut in 2002, EXAUDI has emerged as one of Britainís leading contemporary music ensembles. EXAUDI is based in London. The ensemble typically works as a consort rather than a choir. EXAUDIís special affinities are High Renaissance, early Baroque and especially contemporary music, at home equally with maximal complexity, microtonality and experimental aesthetics.

Mala Punica (pomegranate) is an extraordinary album, particularly because the leader and composer James Weeks has written the settings of the poems Song of Songs especially for the eight voices of EXAUDI which he founded together with the soprano Juliet Fraser. The erotic poems from the Tanach (Old Testament) fascinate through the impressive aesthetic power of EXAUDI. This song circle is framed by the instrumental composition Walled Garden. Mala punica and Walled Garden are totally merged into one another and form an artistic unity.
