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.

Fedel e Costante - Handel Italian Cantatas - Elin Manahan Thomas, soprano

Fedel e Costante - Handel Italian Cantatas - Elin Manahan Thomas, soprano
ID: COR16045
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded live at The Sixteen's Handel in Oxford Festival, 2006, Elin Manahan Thomas gives a performance of captivating communication and sparkling intelligence in these stunning and contrasting Handel Cantatas, bringing to life the world of four women, all of whom have been betrayed by love and its deceitful charms.

Agrippina, sister of Caligula and wife of Claudius, vacillates from fiery monarch in outrage to a tender mother appalled by her son's weakness. At the last, she resigns herself to a noble death at the hands of her cruel, ignoble son. Nel dolce dell' oblio descries the sweet oblivion of sleep as the beloved Fili lies dreaming of her darling. Tu fedel, Tu Costante has the singer berating her beloved, Fileno, for his philandering ways as he loves a hundred beauties and wishes to share himself with them all. In the last aria she decides either to love another, or to live entirely with out love henceforth. Armida abbandonata tells a tale of desperate, unrequited love. When the Saracen witch Armida falls in love with captured warrior Rinaldo, Armida bewitches him to love her in return but eventually her spell fails and Rinaldo returns to his ship and abandons her.

The massive granite-like choral writing of early sixteenth-century Scottish choral music is here displayed in Carver’s magnificent nineteen-voice votive antiphon O bone Jesu, written for James IV King of Scots. The large-scale Missa Dum sacrum mysterium with its sumptuous polyphony may well have been sung at the coronation of James V in 1513.

Henry Purcell & James MacMillan - Bright Orb of Harmony, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Henry Purcell & James MacMillan - Bright Orb of Harmony, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers
ID: COR16069
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

To celebrate their thirtieth anniversary, the three hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Henry Purcell’s birth (1659) and James MacMillan’s fiftieth birthday (16 July 2009), The Sixteen recorded live at the first concert on the 2009 Choral Pilgrimage a brand new disc of music dedicated to these most innovative of British composers. Purcell’s extraordinary use of harmony sounds as modern today as it must have sounded in the seventeenth century. Putting his heartfelt Funeral Sentences alongside James MacMillan’s powerfully emotive A Child’s Prayer, written in memory of the Dunblane Tragedy, and his hauntingly beautiful O bone Jesu (a piece originally commissioned by The Sixteen) will give the listener the chance to experience the true power of this music.
