Giusepppe Torelli - The Original Brandenburg Concertos - Charivari Agréable
ID: SIGCD157
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection

Giuseppe Torelli was one of the most important composers of the Italian Baroque, being among the developers of the Baroque concerto and Concerto Grosso. This disc marks the tercentenary of his death with a selection of Torelli's concertos written for his employer, George Friedrich II, the Margrave of Brandenburg- Ansbach.

Continuing their extensive catalogue with Signum Classics Charivari Agréable, under the direction of Kah-Ming Ng, is one of the most versatile Early Music groups around. The ensemble specialises in the ingenious use of period instruments to produce "ravishing sonorities and full-bodied textures" (Gramophone Magazine).

ID: SIGCD176

Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Founded in 1836, the Huddersfield Choral Society has long been a major part of the town’s vibrant musical tradition. Under a succession of distinguished principal condutors and chorus masters it has developed an international reputation as the UK’s leading choral society. Although enjoying a close working relationship with any leading professional orchestras and conductors, the Society is a independent and self-governing amateur choir, drawing talented singers from a wide area across Yokshire and the north of England. This is the Huddersfield Choral Society’s fourth release with Signum Records. Other releases include SIGCD074 Messiah, SIGCD079 The Hymns Album and SIGCD108 The Carols Album.

Figure Humaine - Choral Works by Francis Poulenc - Tenebrae - Nigel Short

Figure Humaine - Choral Works by Francis Poulenc - Tenebrae - Nigel Short
ID: SIGCD197
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choral and Organ

Francis Poulenc is now considered to be among the most important composers of choral music of the 20th Century. Yet his early career reveals no trace of the dazzling and idiosyncratic unaccompanied choral textures so abundantly produced in the second half of his life.

This new collection of Poulenc's choral works is centered on his masterwork, the Figure Humaine. Even though it is only 20 minutes in length, the work is a supreme test of stamina, technical agility, range, aural skill and musicianship. The professional chamber choir Tenebrae (directed by former King's Singer Nigel Short) are more than capable of tackling this repertoire, and this disc promises to provide a new benchmark in interpretations of the work.

Langlais - Messe Solennelle - French Sacred Music for Choir and Organ

Langlais - Messe Solennelle - French Sacred Music for Choir and Organ
ID: SIGCD206
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choral and Organ

Eton College Chapel Choir perform an enchanting selection of 20th Century French Choral and Organ music. As well as music by composers who were at the heart of French musical life in Paris, such as Olivier Messiaen and Francis Poulenc, this disc features works by lesser-known composers such as Déodat de Severac and Pierre Villette. The choir’s history can be charted back to the founding of Eton in 1441 by Henry VI. The present day choir is comprised of Eton students (with the occasional master), about half of whom have been choristers at cathedrals or chapels before they come to Eton for their secondary education.

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.

In 1612, Prince Henry Frederick, son of James I and heir to the thrones of England and Scotland, died from a suspected bout of typhoid fever. His untimely death inspired a massive outpouring of artistic tributes in both verse and music, reflecting the mood of a nation mourning the loss of this popular future king at just 18 years of age.

'Dialogues of Sorrow' is the second disc from early music consort group Gallicantus, here joined by lutenist Elizabeth Kenny to perform familiar masterpieces and undiscovered treasures of the late English Renaissance, composed at the time of the young prince's death. The release follows the group's critically acclaimed debut recording, 'Hymns, Psalms and Lamentations' - music by Robert White.

Reviews for Gallicantus’s 2009 disc, Hymns, Psalms and Lamentations: Sacred Music by Robert White (SIGCD134)

“Taste the final amens in Exaudiat te, Dominus, where imitative exchanges spiral in ecstasy. Impassioned, exciting music.” The Times

“What an outstanding disc … never once is there a loss of clarity, a hint of muddiness.” The Gramophone
