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.

Padre Pio - Prayer - MacMillan, Panufnik, Todd - The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Padre Pio - Prayer - MacMillan, Panufnik, Todd - The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

*Commissioned by the Genesis Foundation

The result of a fascinating partnership with the Genesis Foundation, this disc features new commissions from three of Britain’s most respected contemporary composers: James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Will Todd. Whilst all are based on the prayer of the Capuchin priest, Padre Pio (the familiar name by which millions know St Pius of Pietrelcina), each new work is very different, but communicates equally powerfully the multitude of emotions expressed in the prayer - anxiety, frailty, warmth, confidence, ecstasy and, ultimately, peace. The brilliance of these three composers is exemplified not just by these remarkable new pieces but also by other works featured on this CD which The Sixteen brings to radiant life.

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.

Ceremony and Devotion - Music for the Tudors, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Ceremony and Devotion - Music for the Tudors, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers
ID: COR16077
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance

Sixteenth-century England was a place of much religious change. It was a dangerous and confusing time as Henry VIII, who had split with Rome, was succeeded by his young son Edward VI, then by the ardent Catholic, Mary Tudor, and finally by the Protestant, Elizabeth I. Composers of the day, such as William Byrd, John Sheppard and Thomas Tallis, were required to adapt to rapidly changing musical requirements and it is testament to their incredible skill and musical mastery that they produced such magnificent works in such troubled times. At the heart of this programme are Sheppard’s monumental Media vita in morte sumus and Byrd’s deeply personal setting of Infelix ego. Set amongst these exceptional masterpieces are Byrd’s joyful motets Laudibus in sanctis and Haec dies, and one of the gems of this recording - Tallis’ s Miserere nostri.

Venetian Treasures - Gabrieli, Caldara, Monteverdi, Cavalli - The Sixteen, H. Christophers

Venetian Treasures - Gabrieli, Caldara, Monteverdi, Cavalli - The Sixteen, H. Christophers

Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

The sacred choral music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries from Venice, especially that written for the splendour of St Mark’s, has a unique style. From the rich and sonorous sound world of the Gabrielis to the airy zestfulness of Caldara’s contemporary Vivaldi, this was music which dazzled the rest of Europe.

Streams of Tears - Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers

Streams of Tears - Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, The Sixteen - Harry Christophers
ID: COR16059
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Padilla is symbolic of an age. One of the most important composers of the ‘New World’, Padilla was a native of Spain who emigrated to Mexico at a time when the church had money as well as a great appreciation of art in the service of the church. Streams of Tears reflects not only the penitential nature of this music but also a period in history know as the ‘Siglo de Oro’ when Spain and Portugal were masters of the great ocean and in the process of discovering and developing new lands in the Americas. The music of the period is as varied as it is distinctive, with a harmonic richness and colour that is found nowhere else.

Dietrich Buxtehude - Membra Jesu Nostri

Dietrich Buxtehude - Membra Jesu Nostri
ID: COR16082
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music

Buxtehude’s cantata cycle, Membra Jesu Nostri, is a unique work. Based on texts from a medieval Latin hymn, ‘Salve mundi salutare’, the cycle contains seven cantatas each dedicated to a different part of Christ’s crucified body. The texts are based on the concept of an observer contemplating Christ’s body on the cross starting with his feet and moving up to his knees, hands, side, breast, heart and finally his head. Buxtehude plays cleverly with musical colours and textures and changes the mixture of voices and instruments to dramatic effect as the work develops.

Subcollection: Ars Antiqua

Welcoming the internationally celebrated vocal group, the Hilliard Ensemble, onto CORO ... In all the excitement and immediacy of live performance the world-famous Hilliard Ensemble here displays the complex musical style of the Notre Dame school of around 1200 AD. They contrast this Parisian form with contemporary examples from south-western France and England. Throughout the experience is compelling and other-worldly; it will fascinate those who have never before heard such music. The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. This series was only previously available direct from the group but has never before been fully available at international retail.

Claudio Monteverdi: Selva morale e spirituale Vol.I

Claudio Monteverdi: Selva morale e spirituale Vol.I
ID: COR16087

Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Without doubt, Monteverdi was the greatest of the early baroque European composers. He revolutionised the music of the theatre and the church by his dramatic and imaginative use of voices and instruments and by his daring harmonies and rhythms. Next to his Vespers of 1610, the Selva morale e spirituale of 1641 is his most significant and virtuosic collection of sacred music. Over the next few years we intend to record the complete publication with a variety of forces. His much performed Beatus vir is a mere appetiser for this delightful yet thrilling music.
