MEIN ENGEL - Thomas Gabriel - lyrical angel songs

MEIN ENGEL - Thomas Gabriel - lyrical angel songs
ID: IFO03001
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music

At present there is no shortage of angels: a lot of anthologies of poems and other texts as well as recordings of "angel music" demonstrate how fascinating the messengers and guarding powers of the invisible world are again in our days. The compositions by Thomas Gabriel combine poems and music in these songs. They meet the growing demand for "new religious songs" with sophisticated lyrics on the one hand and melodies on the other hand which are neither markedly youthful like the so-called "new spiritual songs" nor as demanding as the avant-garde art song.

For the arrangements Thomas Gabriel selected lyrics by prominent poets of their time which he spontaneously connected with tunes. With intuition he translated them into music stressing the special character of each poem.

The Bishop of Mainz, Cardinal Karl Lehmann, supported this project not only with his interest, but also by supplying several volumes from the extensive lyric collections of his library to select the right poems from.

Therefore the composer wished to dedicate these songs to Lehmann´s 65th birthday on May 16, 2001.

Heiliger Glanz - Lieder des christlichen Ostens

Die Gruppe "Kupalinka" entstand im Sommer 2001 durch die Initiative des Freiburger Musikstudenten Josef Kraft, der im Rahmen der partnerschaftlichen Beziehungen zwischen der Musikhochschule Freiburg und dem Konservatorium in Odessa an einem Austauschprogramm in Odessa teilnahm. Beim gemeinsamen Musizieren mit Studenten des Konservatoriums bildete sich das Quintett Kupalinka, das seitdem mit viel Freude und Begeisterung ukrainische und russische Folklore sowie Gesänge aus der russisch-orthodoxen Liturgie aufführt. Der Name "Kupalinka" ist inspiriert vom gleichnamigen ukrainischen Volkslied, das zu den Lieblingsliedern der Gruppe zählt. Bei zwei Konzerttourneen (Sommer 2001 und Winter 2001/02) wurde das Ensemble in Deutschland gastfreundlich aufgenommen von vielen Kirchengemeinden und anderen Veranstaltern in Mainz und im Rhein-Main-Gebiet, in Freiburg und im Schwarzwald, in München und Münster. Ermutigt von der großen Resonanz fanden im Januar und August 2002 Aufnahmen in Geinsheim und Mainz zur vorliegenden CD statt.

Guillaume Dufay: Sacred music from the Bologna Q15 manuscript

Guillaume Dufay: Sacred music from the Bologna Q15 manuscript
ID: SIGCD023
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music

This is the third disc recorded by The Clerks' Group for their Signum Records trilogy. The series explores repertoire in the medieval period and culminates with a selection of works by Guillaume Dufay, found in one of the great anthologies of 15th century music: the manuscript Bologna, Civico Museo Bibliografico Musicale, MS Q15 (or "Q15" as it is known by its friends).

The Q15 manuscript contains examples of almost every conceivable musical genre of the period by a vast array of composers. The Clerks' Group has chosen to perform works by a single composer, but still the variety of forms and styles on offer is bewildering. Guillaume Dufay was a composer who witnessed and contributed to most of the revolutionary changes to occur in music composition in the 15th century. The album includes some of the earlier works so often neglected from Dufay's repertoire, and goes on to explore compositions that demonstrate this revolutionary genius. Some compositional techniques celebrated by The Clerks' Group's performance include the playful exchange of Dufay's song-like melodies between the vocal lines; and the use of mensural canon, where the same melody is sung by all voices but at slightly different speeds. These are just a few examples of the radical nature of Dufay's music as demonstrated on this recording.

The Clerks' Group brings immense diversity to the music and its performance. Their refreshing approach displays sincere empathy and passion for this astonishing repertory.

Sacred music by contemporary composers

Includes Tavener World Premiere Recording

Signum Records is delighted to announce the release of Tenebrae's second disc, Mother and Child
Tenebrae has, in its short existence, made a considerable impact with fresh and vital re-interpretations of classic works in the choral repertoire. On this new recording, innovatory and lesser-known repertoire is drawn from contemporary sources, reflecting an exploratory approach which places the group artistically at the cutting edge.
This is a distinctive and distinguished collection of works by a number of living composers, many of whom have established themselves at the creative forefront of the choral scene in recent times.

Five of the tracks are world premier recordings:
Francis Pott: The souls of the righteous Sir John Tavener: Mother and Child Alexander L’Estrange: Lute-book lullaby Jeremy Filsell: O be joyful in the Lord Francis Pott: My song is love unknown

The centre-piece of the disc is a new commission - Mother and Child - by from the world acclaimed composer Sir John Taverner.

The universal aspect of motherhood is an idea to which Tavener has returned again and again in his music. Behind this concept lies that of infinite theophanic light, an idea common to all religious traditions. Tavener’s music here interpolates a poem by Brian Keeble with Greek and Sanskrit quotations, the latter in a climactic outburst. The music, having grown in crescendo, is joined by massive organ chords and develops to become an overwhelming pulsating texture at the climax, with awesome strokes sounded on a large Hindu temple gong. The clamour dissipates at the final invocation, ‘Hail Maria’, which is prayerful and contemplative.
