Vivald: Gloria in D major / Bach: Magnificat in D major - The Sixteen - H. Christophers

Vivald: Gloria in D major / Bach: Magnificat in D major - The Sixteen - H. Christophers
ID: COR16042
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque

About this title: The small British chorus called the Sixteen and director Harry Christophers have delivered consistently popular recordings of Renaissance and Baroque music, maintaining very high standards of performance. Here they couple two of the most popular Baroque works of all, Vivaldi's Gloria in D major, RV 589, and Bach's Magnificat in D major, BWV 243, and the results are handsome indeed. The tenor of the performances flows from the conceptions of each work that Christophers expresses in one of the little personal essays that appears at the beginning of each booklet in this series: Vivaldi, he said, is "effective," and even operates in places here "at his simplest," while Bach is "complex." Some would use other words first, for each composer -- daring or kinetic for Vivaldi, devotional or a dozen other words for Bach. There are recordings that give Vivaldi in general and the Gloria in particular more of an edge; there are recordings of Bach that seem warmer, or more rooted in the sacred texts.

Music From the Sistine Chapel - Allegri, Anerio, Palestrina, Marenzio

Music From the Sistine Chapel - Allegri, Anerio, Palestrina, Marenzio
ID: COR16047
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded in November 2006, this disc offers a fascinating collection of works written for the Papal Chapel. Researched and sung by one of the world's leading choirs, The Sixteen and Harry Christophers, this recording includes many world premiere recordings of these rarely heard sacred works. Felice Anerio displays a fluid mastery of the Roman style of composition, and some of his surviving settings are shown to advantage here, in particular his glorious twelve-part setting of Stabat Mater, more ambitious and possibly more beautiful than those by Palestrina and Lassus. Gregorio Allegri is famous for his Miserere (available on coro as cor16014); this recording contains representative examples of his polyphonic style. Together with settings by the towering figure of Palestrina, all receive warm and vital performances.

Venetian Treasures - Gabrieli, Caldara, Monteverdi, Cavalli - The Sixteen, H. Christophers
ID: COR16053

Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

The sacred choral music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries from Venice, especially that written for the splendour of St Mark’s, has a unique style. From the rich and sonorous sound world of the Gabrielis to the airy zestfulness of Caldara’s contemporary Vivaldi, this was music which dazzled the rest of Europe.

Streams of Tears - Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Streams of Tears - Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers
ID: COR16059
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Padilla is symbolic of an age. One of the most important composers of the ‘New World’, Padilla was a native of Spain who emigrated to Mexico at a time when the church had money as well as a great appreciation of art in the service of the church. Streams of Tears reflects not only the penitential nature of this music but also a period in history know as the ‘Siglo de Oro’ when Spain and Portugal were masters of the great ocean and in the process of discovering and developing new lands in the Americas. The music of the period is as varied as it is distinctive, with a harmonic richness and colour that is found nowhere else.

Dietrich Buxtehude - Membra Jesu Nostri

Dietrich Buxtehude - Membra Jesu Nostri
ID: COR16082
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music

Buxtehude’s cantata cycle, Membra Jesu Nostri, is a unique work. Based on texts from a medieval Latin hymn, ‘Salve mundi salutare’, the cycle contains seven cantatas each dedicated to a different part of Christ’s crucified body. The texts are based on the concept of an observer contemplating Christ’s body on the cross starting with his feet and moving up to his knees, hands, side, breast, heart and finally his head. Buxtehude plays cleverly with musical colours and textures and changes the mixture of voices and instruments to dramatic effect as the work develops.

Recording information: St Jude's Church, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, Engl (02/07/2000-02/09/2000)

Originally recorded for and released on Linn Records.

Guillaume Dufay - Hilliard Live 4, Live Recording - Hilliard Ensemble
ID: COR16055
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

A Franco-Flemish composer and music theorist of the early Renaissance, Dufay was the central figure in the Burgundian School and was the most famous and influential composer in Europe in the mid-15th century. His music was copied, distributed and sung across Europe and almost all composers of the succeeding generations absorbed some elements of his style.

The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. This series was only previously available direct from the group but has never before been fully available at international retail.
