Susanne un jour - Venetian Harpsichord Music - Timothy Roberts

Susanne un jour - Venetian Harpsichord Music - Timothy Roberts
ID: EMCCD7760
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance

This new Timothy Roberts recording features works from what was, for centuries, Italy's leading centre of keyboard music : Venice. Thanks to Venice's flourishing publishing trade, Mr. Roberts was able to nourish both his passion for research and the pleasure of playing this magnificent, luscious and yet subtle repertoire. The recording includes works by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Merulo, Adriano Banchieri, Giovanni Picchi, Bernardo Storace, Benedetto Marcello and Baldassare Galuppi. It was recorded at the Glynde Parish Church, England Sussex, in October 2003 on two harpsichords by Malcolm Rose, 2003, after Alessandro Trasuntino 1531 (Royal College of Music Museum, London).

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. 1 - Music for Henry VIII

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. 1 - Music for Henry VIII
ID: SIGCD001
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection

This disc is the first in a series of nine covering the complete works of Thomas Tallis (c.1505-1585). Not for nothing is Tallis known as the "father of church music" - with his colleagues at the Chapel Royal he created most of the church music genres that we take for granted today.

Volume one in the series of nine contains much of the music that Tallis wrote during the reign of Henry VIII. The two early votive antiphons Ave Dei and Ave Rosa open the disc and it concludes with one of Tallis's masterpieces Salve Intemerata.

Unusually for an English composer of the time, Tallis wrote a "parody" mass based on material from Salve Intemerata. Also included are two beautiful miniatures not previously recorded Alleluia: Ora pro nobis and Euge celi porta. This was the first disc to be recorded by Chapelle du Roi and was Signum Records' debut disc in February 1997.

Music Music at the Court of Duke Wilhelm V of Jülich-Kleve-Berg
More than 400 years ago, the musician and composer Martin Peudargent (ca. 1510 - before 1594) was employed at the ducal court of Jülich-Kleve. He left an extensive oeuvre, which has only recently become widely accessible. His first collection of motets, the »Liber Primus sacrarum cantionum quinque vocum, quae vulgo Moteta vocantur«, was printed in Düsseldorf in 1555. On the title page, Peudargent is described as »Illustrißimi Ducis Iuliae, Cliviae, Bergiae etc. Musicus«. From a later source it appears that he originated from Huy in the Netherlands, in the prince-bishopric of Liège. He may therefore have been educated in the city of Liège. In later years he maintained close relations with Liège musicians such as Adamus de Ponta. The motet collection is the earliest proof of Peudargent’s employment at the court of Jülich-Kleve. In an earlier record, dating from 1532, he is described as »magister Martin Peudargent« and owner of a house in the ducal seat of Kleve. Peudargent was probably employed at the local convent school, whose choir sung frequently at court.
The present recording focuses on the »State or Homage motets« from Peudargent’s second collection (1555), in which reference is made to the ducal house. The recording also includes works from the first and second motet books, as they would have been performed in the day-to-day routine of a court »Kapelle«: settings of biblical texts, especially psalms, and free texts according to the church year.

Wordplay - Instrumental versions of madrigals and chansons from 16th century Italy

Wordplay - Instrumental versions  of madrigals and chansons from 16th century Italy
ID: SIGCD031
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance
Subcollection: Historical Instruments

Words were more important than music in the Italian 16th century and song was therefore a higher art form than instrumental music. Composers such as Cipriano da Rore who observed the natural speech rhythms were afforded the highest accolades.

Wordplay presents a collection of highly decorated vocal music in purely instrumental performance. The disc explores the role of the soloist in a period of music which has come to be defined by consort playing. In the two centuries that this repertoire covers the borrowing and reworking of the music of earlier composers was regarded as creative, original and even as an act of respect or homage.

The disc is structured around instrumental divisions on five famous songs of 16th century and one bass-dance tenor. The divisions are for recorder, bass viol or lute. In total 17 different instruments are used including three types of recorder, three types of lute, seven sizes of viol, and a chamber organ. All are precise copies of early Italian instruments including wide-bore recorders and sound-postless viols.

Central to Wordplay are the writings of Slyvestro Ganassi, a recorder and viol player in early 16th century Venice. In La Fontegara (1535) and Regola Rubertina (1545) Ganassi defines the aim of the instrumentalist as being to imitate a good singer, and describes two distinct ways of doing so.

The first is naturalistic - how to replicate the singer's tonal and dynamic variety exactly (on the recorder with varied breath pressure and alternative fingerings, on the viol with bow and finger vibrato etc).

The second involves study of the text and using trills (from suave quarter-tones to vivace wide major thirds) and elaborate divisions (with notated syncopations and rubato) to express the sense of particular words and emotions. Fifty years later, Dalla Casa, Bassano and Rognoni have developed a more idiomatic instrumental style and have more polished and formulaic passaggi.

All the pieces - though instrumentalists - use exclusively vocal originals, and all would pay more than lip service to Giovanni Bardi's precept: "Words are the soul, music but the body"

WordPlay is one of the first recordings made in York's newly opened National Centre for Early Music in the church of St Margaret, Walmgate.

Musica Antiqua is one of England's most celebrated early music ensembles and they have triumphed here with their third disc for Signum Records!
