The Queen's Six - Daniel Brittain & Timothy Carleston (countertenors), Nicholas Madden & Dominic Bland (tenors), Andrew Thompson & Simon Whiteley (basses)
Following on from their acclaimed debut album (Music of the Realm - RES10146), a capella vocal sextet The Queen’s Six return with a captivating exploration of secular jewels by the same six composers associated with the Tudor and Jacobean royal courts featured on that earlier recording - Thomas Tomkins, William Byrd, Thomas Morley, Thomas Weelkes, William Byrd & Thomas Tallis.

Themes as diverse as royalty, balletts, birds, the natural world, dedications and love & death serve to celebrate the immense range of this golden age of English music.

Following the critical acclaim of their debut album ‘Music of the Realm’, The Queen’s Six return to Resonus with a programme of secular madrigals from the same six English Renaissance composers all associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group take their name.

Entitled ‘Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court’, The Queen’s Six present a recital of well- and lesser-known works by Morley, Weelkes, Tomkins, Byrd, Tallis and Gibbons, with various themes of ‘Royalty’, ‘Planets’, ‘Ballets’, ‘Birds and Flowers’, ‘Dedications’ and ‘Love and Death’.

An English Renaissance - George Caird,oboe and friends

An English Renaissance - George Caird,oboe and friends
ID: CC2009
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

George Caird (oboe) with
Simon Blendis (violin), Louise Williams (viola), Jane Salmon (cello), Alison Dods (violin 2 in Maconchy, Gow), David Adams (violin 2 in Bliss)


The CD booklet contains a 2,500-word article by George Caird on the music in English, French and German.
There are more photos of the performers and the recording session.


This recording brings together five remarkable works for oboe and strings written between 1926 and 1946 and representing an English renaissance for the oboe as a chamber music instrument. It is a period which is musically very rich and diverse, with English composers showing new influences from Europe and America. The range and expression across these works is striking and is a tribute to the artistry of the oboist Léon Goossens, who is the dedicatee of three of the works and who taught the dedicatees of certainly one and possibly both of the other two. He was also the player behind two other important works by Bax and Finzi. These magnificent seven works, it can be argued, established a repertoire for oboe quartets and quintets and did much to promote the oboe as a chamber music instrument.

Goossens’ exquisite playing was characterised by a distinctive and sensitive sound, beautiful phrasing, a wide dynamic and tonal range and great rhythmic vitality. His collaboration with Sir Arnold Bax produced the first significant work for oboe and strings, the Quintet written in 1922 and recorded by Goossens with the International Quartet in 1924 (featured on Oboe Classics CC2005). Bax’s music, with its pastoral and elegiac qualities together with a strong Irish influence leant itself superbly to Goossens’ playing and this work must surely be partly responsible for the works on this recording. copyright George Caird 2004

Philippus de Monte - Ensemble Orlando Fribourg - Laurent Gendre

Philippus de Monte - Ensemble Orlando Fribourg - Laurent Gendre
ID: CLAVES502712
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music

Philippus (or Philippe) de Monte and Roland de Lassus are considered the two central figures in the golden age of Franco-Flemish polyphony that originated at the beginning of the 15th century and that determined stylistic trends in Western Europe for nearly two centuries. De Monte was Kapellmeister at the Habsburg court in Vienna from 1568 until his death in 1603 (at the very respectable age of 82); before that he had made a name for himself in Italy and in England - where he met William Byrd but was unhappy working at the court. Extremely prolific, his madrigals are characterized not only by an exquisite mastery of polyphony but also by a special attention to the sung text - he was a disciple of the humanist movement and put particular emphasis on the rhetorical resources of language. His sacred music, also of great import, consists primarily of masses and motets and is comparable to Palastrina’s music. His some 250 motets were written in a style that could be described as typically “Renaissance”. His chansons, fewer in number, took their texts from brilliant Pierre de Ronsard, the preferred poet of the time. The Ensemble Orlando from Fribourg under the direction of Laurent Gendre on their first recording for Claves render homage to all the contrasting facets of Philippus de Monte’s works. Richly documented, the booklet was prepared under the direction of Ignace Bossuyt, professor in Louvain and renowned expert for Franco-Flemish polyphonic music.

Subcollection: Cantatas

Late Renaissance and Early Baroque

Die »Marienvesper« gehört zu den meistaufgeführten Werken Monteverdis - so ist diese Produktion nicht die erste und wird auch nicht die letzte Aufnahme der gewaltigen frühbarocken Vespermusik zum Lobe Marias sein. Was die vorliegende Einspielung auszeichnet, ist die unvergleichliche Konzertatmosphäre, die durch den Livemitschnitt einer Aufführung im Meißner Dom entstand - gleichwohl mit höchster technischer Perfektion und musikalischem Glanz seitens der Sänger und Musiker. Der Hörer erhält ein plastisches Bild des konzertierenden Miteinanders von Vokal- und Instrumentalstimmen, der hochvirtuosen Stücke für Solosänger, der großartigen doppelchörigen Partien und nicht zuletzt der reichen Farbigkeit des historischen Blas-, Streich- und Zupfinstrumentariums. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Ton ist man gefesselt vom starken musikalischen Zug der Aufführung, der durch nichts gebremsten Ekstase der polyphonen Sätze und der äußerst sinnlichen Darstellung der solistischen Stücke.
Die Akustik des Meißner Doms trägt der Vielschichtigkeit des Werkes Rechnung und läßt die überwältigende Klangfülle des Markusdoms in Venedig erahnen, wo Monteverdi bis zu seinem Tode Kapellmeister war und wo mit großer Sicherheit auch seine »Marienvesper« erklang.

This World's Globe - With the Musicians and Actors of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre London

This World's Globe - With the Musicians and Actors of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre London
ID: SIGCD077
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance
Subcollection: Historical Instruments

This selection recreates the sounds of the Globe Theatre of London with spoken word material from Shakespeare and seventeenth-century music, both performed in the manner of the era.

Celebrating Elizabethan and Jacobean Theatre brought to life by the actors and musicians of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre London, with words and music recreating the unique Globe experience. Actors Liam Brennan, Tom Burke, John McEnery and Mark Rylance are featured in their performances as Romeo, Orsino, John of Gaunt and King Richard II.

Also featuring material from Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure and Much Ado About Nothing with introductions in the original pronounciation of Shakespeare's time, all music played on period instruments plus the special treat of excerpts of live performances on the Globe stage.

Disc 1 - The Play's The Thing is a whistle-stop journey, a sampler and guide to 'hearing at the Globe' - words and music combining to tell tales of adrent lovers, noble men, earthy peasants and bitter kings. Audience and actor can be heard together in some rare recordings of live performances from the Globe stage itself.
Disc 2 - Groundlings to Gods assembles a wide range of music from Shakespeare's time. The collection reflects the hierarchy of Elizabethan and Jacobean society, which the Globe's architecture itself embodies - music of the gods, tears of the muses, fanfares for kings and princes, courtly dances, music for banquets, songs, exuberant jibs and bawdy entertainment for taverns and brothels.

William Shakespeare's original playhouse is brought to life on disc with music and words recreating the unique Globe experience. With a wealth of historical fanfares, dances and songs played by the Mucicians of Shakespeare's Globe on period instruments, the company performs material from acclaimed productions including Romeo and Juliet, Richard II, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure and Much Ado About Nothing.

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. - The Instrumental Music and Songs

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. - The Instrumental Music and Songs
ID: SIGCD042
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Songs

The final release explores the most obscure and enigmatic corner of Tallis’s output - his secular music. His profession as church musician and member of the Chapel Royal did not require him to write secular songs or pieces, yet some works may have been written for the Tudor court. Other works are thought to have been written for generations of choir boys, who were assisted with their training by the composer. Plays and performances outside of the choirboy’s obligation were popular, as well as instrumental consort music and keyboard pieces associated with their training. Tallis is likely to have been given the opportunity to write his secular works for these occasions.

Tallis’s music was admired and used by others far beyond the Chapel Royal and the court. Some of his intended sacred choral works are included on this recording in other guises, arranged by musicians with performance intentions very different to that of the church. His reputation of greatness amongst his friends and contemporaries is reflected in William Byrd’s elegy Ye sacred muses, where he echoes the sentiments of others with the words "Tallis is dead, and Music dies". This musical tribute has justifiably become one of Byrd’s most popular works.

Volume 9 of The Complete Works is a double CD release, marking the end of this popular series. Alistair Dixon has realised the project, and directed his choir Chapelle du Roi throughout the earlier volumes. Musicians featured on this final disc are: Andrew Benson-Williams (organ), Laurence Cummings (virginals), the ensemble Charivari Agréable, Lynda Sayce (lute), and Stephen Taylor (counter tenor)
