Robert Carver - Master of the Scottish Renaissance

Robert Carver - Master of the Scottish Renaissance
ID: COR16051
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance
Subcollection: Choir

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.

Handel: Coronation Anthems - The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Handel: Coronation Anthems - The Sixteen - Harry Christophers
ID: COR16066
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Handel’s Coronation Anthems have delighted audiences ever since their first performance in 1727. They appear in all their glory on this recording interspersed with a selection of Handel favourites including an interesting version of his Organ Concerto in F Major Opus 4 in its original version with the finale of an Hallelujah chorus.

One of Handel’s first tasks as a naturalized British Citizen was to write the music for the Coronation of the new monarch - King George II. Rarely did a composer of the day have such an audience for his new works and Handel composed his four Anthems to match the pomp and grandeur of the occasion and, of course, the venue - Westminster Abbey.

Guerrero: Missa de la batalla escoutez - Janequin: La Guerre

Guerrero: Missa de la batalla escoutez - Janequin: La Guerre
ID: COR16067
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

This brand new recording by Harry Christophers and The Sixteen is dedicated to the works of Spanish Renaissance composer Francisco Guerrero and includes his exquisite Missa de la Batalla Escoutez. The Mass is a parody on Janeuqin's famous chanson 'La Guerre' which also features on this disc. Janequin’s La Guerre, was so popular in the 16th century that it led to numerous composers, including Janequin himself, writing parody mass settings on it. Missa de la Batalla Escoutez is one of the finest of those settings.

Guerrero is a quite astounding and varied composer with a wide expressive range. Heralded in the Renaissance as ‘the most extraordinary of his time in the art of music’, he was more famous than Victoria and Morales. Despite being a master of expression and sublime melodic invention - skills exemplified by his Missa de la Batalla Escoutez and the other fine works on this disc - Guerrero’s work has often been overlooked in favour of that of his contemporaries. With this brand new recording The Sixteen aims to redress the balance.
