Product details

The cantata is intensely erotic in nature and subject. The first of its three movements is a setting of the passage in Ovid's Metamorphoses which deals with the seduction of Europa by Jupiter disguised as a bull. The second is a setting of part of a poem by the New Zealand poet Jan Kemp, written from the point of view of a woman about her lover decpicted as a bull. The third, which uses an ancient Syrian chant (the seduction took place on the coast of Syria), returns, post coitum, to fragments of the Ovid text.
