The "Song of Songs" has probably never sounded anything like this.

The short book in the Bible, also known as the "Canticle of Canticles," has never been a shrinking violet. Despite it's small size, this love poem has made quite a name for itself.

According to some scholars, the earliest interpretations of the entire Song of Songs come from an Old Greek translation.

The newest interpretation might just be right here in Boston, in a new rock musical from local theater company "Liars & Believers," headed up by artistic director Jason Slavick.
