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.

Pachelbel Vespers - The King's Singers - Charivari Agréable

Pachelbel Vespers - The King's Singers - Charivari Agréable
ID: SIGCD198
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Vocal CollectionSubkolektion: Choir

The music contained in this CD represents a selection of Vespers movements written by the organist Johann Pachelbel. They have in common the distinctively sonorous scoring of four or five-part choir, accompanied by a six-part string orchestra to which is added, at the composer’s express request, a bassoon.
‘Charivari Agréable is one of the most versatile Early Music groups around at the moment; under its benign director, Kah-Ming Ng, it appears to be infinitely adaptable, finding musicians who can fit into any of its many and varied programmes’ International Record Review. They represent ‘a new and very exciting phase of the early music revival, one that enriches the existing repertory and can bring us ever closer to the spirit of the original music’ Gramophone.
Described by The Times as a group that has “stayed in character over four decades, yet retuned itself to the times” and by Gramophone as “enchanting the ear from first to last note” The King’s Singers are truly remarkable. They continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world, performing a rich and varied repertoire from Gesualdo to György Ligeti and Michael Bublé. Internationally recognised for their work in the classical field, they retain the sparkle that delights so many fans when they perform much loved numbers from the lighter end of the repertoire. Whatever the music The King’s Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

Choir of St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral, Sofia
Dimitar Dimitrov, conductor

Gega New Music Company pays special attention to featuring liturgical music in its catalogue. Up to now the company has released a number of recordings with liturgical chants, which are a part of the usual festive liturgies. This is the first complete recording in Bulgaria of the Paschal Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, in observation of the East-Orthodox canon the way it is performed at the St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral, together with the choir performance, chants and the bell chimes of the Cathedral. The St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral was consecrated on September 12, 1924. Three years later (1927) Apostol Nikolaev established the mixed Choir with the Cathedral, which, ever since its foundation, has taken part in all church events and festive liturgies. In 1936, Prof Dobri Hristov, a great Bulgarian composer and conductor, student of Antonin Dvorak at the Prague Conservatory, took the position of conductor. D. Hristov is the author of a number of religious works, most of which were composed especially for the Cathedral's choir and they are still present in its repertoire. After Maestro Dobri Hristov, the choir was conducted in the course of 36 years by Angel Popkonstantinov, and since 1978 his conductor has been Dimitar Dimitrov. He graduated from the ”St. John of Rila” Sofia Ecclesiastic Seminary, the “St. Kliment of Ohrid” Academy of Theology, and the State Academy of Music in Sofia. While a student, in 1967, together with his colleagues from the Academy of Theology, he founded the “St. John Koukouzeles - Angeloglasniyat” Chamber Ensemble, whose conductor he has been ever since. He has been teaching religious music at the Department of Theology with the “St. Kliment Ohridsky” Sofia University and at the “Venerable Paisii of Hilendar” Subsidiary of the Plovdiv University in Kardjali. He also reads lectures in liturgical order at the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music. Gega New released the present double CD album with this unique recording to mark the 80th anniversary from the consecration of the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The programme is also dedicated to the 2000th anniversary of Christ's Nativity.

The Majesty of thy Glory - The Temple Church Choir

ID: SIGCD225

Type: CD
Subkolektion: Choir

The Temple Church Choir is considered to be one or the finest choirs in London, a reputation it quckly gained after its founding in 1831. Their debut CD with Signum Classics displays a range of fine sacred works written by English composers between the 17th Century and the present day.

The Temple Church is one of the most historic and beautiful churches in London. Situated between Fleet Street and the Thames Embankment, its recorded musical history extends back to its restoration in 1841, although a church has stood on the site for over 800 years.

The modern choir is comprised of 18 boy choristers and 12 professional choirmen - an excellent opportunity for the choristers who receive singing and theory tuition as well as generous scholarships towards their education. The programme explores three fascinating and contrasting settings of the Te Deum: A stalwart of the church liturgy (first conceived as far back as AD 387), these settings span over 300 years of English music history, composed respectively in 1694 (Purcell), 1897 (Elgar) and 1944 (Howells).

This disc is complemented by the release of James Vivian’s English Organ Music from the Temple Church, also released this month.

Kolektion: Choral CollectionSubkolektion: Choir

Arranged by Classic FM's Hall of Fame 2004 'top-ten-composer' Karl Jenkins, sung by crack professional choir - Tenebrae - Gaudete is released on SignumClassics both with drums and percussion and as a pure, unadulterated, a cappella version

Founded as recently as 2001, Tenebrae has been embraced by the public and critics alike as one of the most innovative and gifted groups in Britain. Tenebrae’s motto is “passion and precision”, but they also believe in accessibility, performing various different types of music as long as it’s good music, sung well.

Gaudete (“rejoice”) is an anonymous composition that was first published in 1582 in a collection of carols and other religious songs called Piae Cantiones. This collection, made by a Scandinavian called Peter Nyland, included a huge number of other Christmas melodies that have since become ‘standards’, but it only gives music for the chorus of Gaudete; the verses, which tell of the wonder of God’s arrival on earth in human form, have been taken from a Czech medieval song about the Virgin Mary, Ezechielis Porta.

Spem in Alium & Sing and Glorify - Thomas Tallis

Spem in Alium & Sing and Glorify - Thomas Tallis
ID: SIGCD047
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Choral Collection

Signum Records presents a world first - a CD single, from a new edition of the magnificent 40-part Thomas Tallis motet Spem in Alium and the English version Sing and Glorify.

Spem in alium is surely not just the greatest of all Thomas Tallis’ musical achievements, but one of the great musical compositions of all time. Writing for 40 independent voices, Thomas Tallis created a noble and imaginative masterpiece.

The earliest surviving manuscript of this great work, the Egerton manuscript, is laid out with an English rendition, Sing and glorify heaven’s high majesty. The English words are not a translation of the Latin, but a new poem written as a syllable-for-syllable replacement.

The new editions of both these works were launched by Chapelle du Roi at a concert at St.John's Smiths Square in 2001 before being recorded for Signum Records. Until then Sing and Glorify had not been performed in this country for more than twenty years, since the evening before the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer.

The exciting young vocal ensemble Chapelle du Roi, whose recordings of the complete works of Thomas Tallis for Signum Records have gained widespread acclaim, here present a recording based on an entirely new edition researched from original sources by Chapelle du Roi’s director, Alistair Dixon.
