'Fire Of Love' is the second set of works from Margaret Rizza. Her first set called 'Fountain Of Life' apparently brought response from around the world. Choral and chant music is an acquired taste. Having been brought up through an Anglican church and being a part of a choir, I used to like this music. Listening to 'Fire Of Love', I could not make out the words but the four part harmony did sound good. I have to admit though, if I did not have the songbook I would not know what was being sung. This does seem to be the case in many choral albums. Looking through the songbook there is a very traditional style to this. If you like choral music you will like this but you do need the songbook to understand it. (At an extra cost of course).
