      Dvořák: Milenka travička (The Beloved as Poisoner) (2:42); Huslař (The Fiddler) (3:03)
      Janáček: Krásné oči tvé (Your Beautiful Eyes) (2:56)


      The newest recording from Cantus focuses on the works of Antonín Dvořák and Leoš Janáček, who were two of the giants of Czech musical history, as well as great personal friends. Both wrote music for male chorus, taking similar inspiration from folksongs of their native lands of Bohemia and Moravia, and from all over Eastern Europe. Janáček dedicated his “Four Male Partsongs” to Dvořák, who dubbed them “a gift with great promise, and in these times a truly special one.”
