Christmas Traditional Composer

Tenebrae is a professional chamber choir, founded and directed by Nigel Short in 2001. Often performing by candlelight, the choir creates an atmosphere of spiritual and musical reflection, where medieval chant and renaissance works are interspersed with contemporary compositions. The carefully selected team of singers use the acoustic and atmostphere of the building to enable the audience to experience the power and intimacy of the human voice.

Tenebrae has an exceptionally wide repertoire from early, through renaissance, baroque and classical music, to romantic and twentieth century works, plus a range of specially commissioned pieces, the most recent of which is Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles. What Sweeter Music is a real festive treat, with a sumptuous collection of songs and carols for Christmas - touching on traditional favourites (Silent Night, Away in a Manger), modern classics (The Lamb, What Sweeter Music) and some new light-hearted arrangements (Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas).

Mini Stories - A new work by Hafliđi Hallgrímsson - Based on the writings of Daniil Kharms, Caput Ensemble - Narrator Simon Callow

Mini Stories - A new work by Hafliđi Hallgrímsson  - Based on the writings of Daniil Kharms, Caput Ensemble  - Narrator Simon Callow
ID: SIGCD181
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Musical

Hafliði Hallgrímsson is one of the leading figures in Icelandic musical life, and his work Mini Stories sets the surreal poetry of the soviet-era writer Daniil Kharms to music. Whilst internationally renowned actor Simon Callow brings Kharms’s texts to life, the Icelandic Caput Ensemble reflect the mood with stellar performances of Hallgrímsson’s evocative accompanying composition.

Description: It needs to be said that this is not ‘texts set to music by Hallgrimsson’; it is in equal parts a CD of the weird, bitter, absurd little stories by Daniil Kharms (1905-42), performed pitch-perfectly by distinguished British actor Simon Callow, and Hallgrimsson’s accompanying intermezzi, one for each tale. Kharms (Daniil Ivanovich Iuvachev) was an avant-garde writer in early Soviet Russia, a member of a short-lived Futurist-Absurdist group that attracted the unfriendly attention of the establishment. His writings got him into trouble with the arbiters of Soviet artistic ideals; he was arrested, imprisoned, exiled, and he finally died in prison hospital, probably of starvation. The stories run the gamut from from nonsensical and comical to absurd and nightmarish, with a peculiarly Russian sense of the inevitability of death and horror familiar from many better-known poets and literary figures, here expressed with pungent and disconcerting brevity. Hallgrimsson’s music establishes atmosphere, mostly rather chilly and bleak, with a fragmentary, dreamlike feel; each little piece has its own logical form and shape, though, and makes its own narrative statement, increasingly so as the cycle progresses. The composer revised the work five years after the original date of composition to add ‘background’ musical gestures during the narration, unobtrusively lending a greater sense of unity to the overall piece. English texts. Simon Callow (narrator), Caput Ensemble.

Naked Byrd - Armonico Consort

Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Naked Byrd: Featuring music by composers who wore their hearts on their sleeves and whose art saw their emotions laid bare. An atmospheric concert where magical musical moments are intertwined with sublime passages of plainchant and violin improvisation.

The varied programme of this recording identifies, as Armonico Consort’s director, Christopher Monks describes, ‘... a wide range of pieces united by the tendency of their composers to wear their hearts on their sleeves and their ability to fix a sense of raw emotion on paper’. For the majority of the composers represented here, the reasons for revealing naked sentiments through their music is as a response to a religious theme, whether through the suppression of particular relgious practices or the influence of relgious ideals themselves. Crossing several centuries, from the sixteenth to the present day this disc displays how every generation has been inspired to use both sacred and secular music as a powerful medium to express their personal emotions.

Includes Allegri's Miserere MeiSt Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Carmen Giannattasio, Veronica Simeoni, Alxander Timchenko, Carlo Colombara & Yuri Temirkanov St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Carmen Giannattasio, Veronica Simeoni, Alxander Timchenko, Carlo Colombara & Yuri Temirkanov Artist: St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Carmen Giannattasio, Veronica Simeoni, Alxander Timchenko, Carlo Colombara & Yuri Temirkanov


The Armonico Consort is, at its heart, a highly talented vocal ensemble that stages a wide variety of concerts. The quality of the performances they stage is reflected in the praise they have recently received: "Superb!" The Times
