Prayers for Mankind - A Symphony of Prayers of Father Alexander Men - Alexander Levine - Tenebrae - Nigel Short

Prayers for Mankind - A Symphony of Prayers of Father Alexander Men - Alexander Levine - Tenebrae - Nigel Short
ID: SIGCD212
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music

Prayers for Mankind celebrates the life and writings of Father Alexander Men, a Russian Orthodox Christian priest who, whilst being little known outside of his home country during his lifetime, has come to be hailed as a saint and martyr by thousands all over the world. 2010 marks the anniversary of what would have been his 85th Birthday, as well as 20 years since his brutal assassination on the way to a Sunday morning service.

Following years of religious suppression under the communist regime, Father Alexander Men emerged as a leading Christian and humanitarian figure in Russia, through radio and TV broadcasts and his prolific written works. These prayers, set by Russian composer Alexander Levine, capture the beauty and humanity of Men’s view of the world, and is brought vividly to life by Nigel Short’s professional chamber choir Tenebrae.

From All Music Guide: Recording place:München
Golden Melodram is an opera collectors' label, presumably it ventured into Baroque choral music here because of the presence of several well-known operatic vocalists, notably bass Hans Hotter and tenor Peter Pears, in this performance. There are no texts. There are no liner notes -- just a track list. We learn that the recording was made live at a performance in Munich in 1960, but we don't know how or by whom. There are mistakes in the strings; there are a lot of coughing Bavarians in the auditorium. The recording does not just have bad sound, it has rock-fan-with-a-microphone-in-the-jeans sound. Perhaps the rock fans will be impressed to know that those of us on the classical side care enough about what we hear to sneak a recording device into the hall on occasion, too. The sound seems as if it's coming through earmuffs, and from time to time (the contralto aria "Von den Stricken meiner Sünden mich zu entbinden," CD 1, track 7, fares poorly) it drops out altogether. The problem is not in your audio equipment.
Thus forewarned, however, you can expect a very fine St. John Passion of the old-fashioned German kind. The focus for Golden Melodram may have been on the singers, and Hotter, who sings the role of Jesus, has a thick, enveloping bass voice that, despite its built-for-Valhalla quality, has a lyrical expressiveness that works well in Baroque melody. Equally beautiful, however, is conductor Eugen Jochum's shaping of the choruses; mounting in power, they may inspire the listener to wonder why nobody does it this way anymore. The Chorus of the Bavarian Radio was one of West Germany's best-trained at this point, and its mighty alto section is a joy to listen to. The Passion settings were as close as Bach came to opera, and the contrast between his polyphonic sacred choruses in the Lutheran church tradition and his Italianate dramatic sense is memorably brought out by this performance. Despite the grade Z sound, it's worth checking out for those who love Bach's passions and miss the good old days when no one would think of performing Bach's choral music with one voice to a part.
