This deluxe presentation celebrates the eighth centenary of its subject. Here called “St. Elizabeth of Thuringia,” but better known as St. Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231), this daughter of the king and queen of Hungary was betrothed to the future margrave of Thuringia in infancy and brought up at that court. She was 14 when the marriage was celebrated, and they had three children before he went off to the Crusades, dying along the way at Otranto in 1227. Elizabeth, already moved by the ideals of the newly founded Franciscan order, devoted herself as Landgravine to the needs of the poor. As a widow, she left the inhospitable court to live in Marburg, where she established a hospital and labored for the sick until her death at the age of 24. Celebrated for her works on behalf of the poor and sick, she was canonized four years later. Devotion spread from Thuringia as far as Cambrai and her native Hungary. Schola Hungarica recorded two chant Offices for her feast (19:4), one from Cambrai, where her heart had been enshrined, and the other from Warburg, a source also copied in Hungary.

Unlike that collection of Office chants, this program is a wide-ranging group of vocal and instrumental pieces from the period, all related closely to the life of the saint. Three separate ensembles take their turns, in addition to Jörg Peukert, who reads from an early biography of the saint with aural punctuation by a harpist. Besides an antiphon, a responsory, a sequence, and a hymn from the Office, we hear vernacular songs by the monk of Salzburg and Walther von der Vogelweide, an Italian lauda, and instrumental pieces by Ioculatores. On two tracks Ioculatores ensemble joins with one or the other group. The tracks spoken in German run over 20 minutes without printed text. The booklet offers a detailed guide to the program, with notes and summaries of each track in addition to the full texts with translations, and it is lavishly illustrated. Everything has been achieved on the highest level to make this a worthy tribute on the saint’s anniversary. As a gift package, it would be a compliment to the taste of the recipient.

The Song of Songs stands apart from its Biblical surroundings as one of the supreme love poems of world literature, a celebration of erotic love in the form of a dialogue between a bridegroom and his bride, invoking all the senses - the fragrance of wine, blossom, fruits and spices. Ranging widely over five centuries,from the relative asperity of Dunstaple to the lush exoticism of Daniel-Lesur, this cherrypicked assortment of sweetmeats is given exultant life by Mike Brewer and Laudibus.
Brewer and his award-winning chamber choir Laudibus have unearthed some rare and precious gems in this recording of a cappella choral music by one of England’s best-loved composers. Little-known works both early and late nestle alongside repertory staples such as the glorious Mass in G minor, in a programme which displays Vaughan Williams’ indebtedness to both the sacred and secular instincts of his Elizabethan precursors.

Vaughan Williams:
The Souls of the Righteous
Three Shakespeare Songs
Prayer to the Father of Heaven
Mass in G minor
O vos omnes
Ca' the Yowes
Love is a Sickness
Three Elizabethan Partsongs
Silence and Music
Heart's Music

Caius, as we've come to expect, combine polish with verve, Webber's meticulous attention to detail floodlit by the bathing acoustics of St Anne's Cathedral, Belfast.

‘Coming from backgrounds of both English choral music and jazz, I have always been obsessed by musical connections. I love to perform music of one culture with singers of another, to help performers to share an awareness of music in different contexts.

I have had the good fortune to travel around the world every three years with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. In South Africa I became fascinated by the rhythms and sounds of the music of the African continent. Mexico and Cuba opened up new vistas of musical connection for me, from elderly musicians performing the son jarocho in village tavernas in Veracruz to Afro- Caribbean jazz ensembles performing unbelievably complex music which arose out of that mix of cultures.

The pieces of choral music found here are similarly hybrid, because in most cases they combine elements from more than one source …’

The internationally-renowned National Youth Choir is peerless in bringing to life Brewer's transcontinental choral imaginings. Headed up by the first commercial recording of Mike’s Hamba Lulu, the programme journeys us from the Icelandic tundra to the sultry jazz clubs of Latin America. Is your hi-fi ready to go?

Two of Britain's finest young choirs join forces and cross a continent to take on the sublime expressiveness of Rodion Shchedrin's 'Russian liturgy', an astonishing statement of faith composed in the early days of perestroika. Shchedrin's choral tableaux juxtapose tenderness with bracing sonic impact, and are shadowed throughout by the plangent voice of a solo oboe representing the soul of the Russian people.This ground-breaking choral partnership committed the work to disc following acclaimed UK première concert performances at the Spitalfields and Oundle festivals in the summer of 2008. In 1992 President Boris Yeltsin awarded Shchedrin the Russian State Prize for The Sealed Angel.

World premiere recordings
Delphian's first orchestral recording presents a richly imagined new choral
symphony by Edward Harper, setting it alongside chamber works by this
inventive and limpidly expressive composer.

Harper's music is firmly within the British symphonic tradition, yet ranges wider still in its deeply felt response to human experience, from the 19th-century Dorset of William Barnes to a message of hope and reconciliation from the present-day Middle East.

Edward Harper was born in Taunton, Somerset. He studied music at Christ Church, Oxford, where he gained a first class honours degree, and at the Royal College of Music, London. Subsequently he studied for a further period with Franco Donatoni in Milan. Since 1964 he has been on the staff of the Faculty of Music at Edinburgh University, where he is a Senior Lecturer. He is active as a pianist and conductor and is the Director of the New Music Group of Scotland, an ensemble which has established itself as a significant and highly- valued part of Scottish musical life, as well as giving concerts in London and abroad.

Harper, E:
Three folk settings for string quartet
The Lowlands of Holland
The Ash Grove
Mairi's Wedding
Scena for solo cello
Scena II for flute, cello and piano
