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.

This release is a unique and rare recording of Ralph Vaughan Williams conducting his Serenade to Music from a performance in 1951. It is a deeply expressive and romantic interpretation. The Serenade to Music was commissioned by Sir Henry Wood for his Jubilee Concert to celebrate his 50 years as a conductor. The concert took place on October 5th 1938.
The Serenade to Music is one of the sweetest, most beautiful of all Vaughan William’s works.

Mariano Stabile, Renata Tebaldi, Cesare Valletti, et al.: vocal soloists / La Scala Orchestra and Chorus / Victor de Sabata: conductor

Verdi’s last opera, written when he was approaching eighty, was only the second comedy of his long career, following the ill-fated Un giorno di regno of fifty years before. His friend and collaborator Arrigo Boito, who had with some difficulty talked him into composing Otello several years earlier, now had an easier time convincing him to crown his glory with one more tribute to his beloved Shakespeare. The three principals are all famous portrayers of their roles, aided by an outstanding supporting cast. Mariano Stabile was a veteran Italian basso buffo who had the role of Falstaff in his belly, if not his bones. Renata Tebaldi was the most famous Italian lyric soprano of her era and she remains, along with Maria Callas, the most loved soprano of recent years. Cesare Valletti was a tenore di grazia, a tenor with a light, flexible head voice of exquisite beauty. Live performance, Milan, May 26, 1951.

St. John Passion - Passio Secundum - Johannem, BWV 245 - J.S. Bach

St. John Passion - Passio Secundum - Johannem, BWV 245 - J.S. Bach
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection

Charles Daniels, Evangelist Stephen Varcoe, Jesus Stephan Logue, Pilate

J.S. Bach’s ‘Passions’ have been said to employ the word with more than one meaning - as well as telling the story of Christ’s sacrifice, they are simultaneously a celebration of human feeling in the joy and suffering of man’s pilgrimage on earth. The expert early music chamber orchestra Yorkshire Baroque Soloists bring all of these feelings to life in a dramatic and resonant performance of Bach’s Passio Secundum Johannem (St John Passion).

Joined for this recording by the excellent Charles Daniels, Stephen Varcoe and Stephan Loges, the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists have been a leading light in the world of Early Music performance since their formation in 1973.

Britten’s powerful and masterful evocation of the North Sea in all its moods has to audiences all over the world become inextricably linked with the Aldeburgh that was home to George Crabbe (author of the ‘The Borough’ from which the story originates) in the eighteenth century and Britten in the twentieth.
Steuart Bedford leads a vast and accomplished ensemble on this new live recording, created shortly before the group’s unique staging of the work on the beach at Aldeburgh as part of the town’s world-renowned festival.

Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 - The Rodolfus Choir, Southern Sinfonia - Ralph Allwood

Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 - The Rodolfus Choir, Southern Sinfonia -  Ralph Allwood
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Choir

Music of the seventeenth century was little known to the concertgoing or record-buying public, up until fifty years or so ago when Monteverdi’s Vespers were performed under the inspiration of figures such as Michael Tippett as part of a modern revival of early music. Subsequently, it has been one of the most celebrated works both with choral societies and early music specialists.
Here, the Rodolfus Choir offer their interpretation of one of the most magnificent works of the seventeenth century. Following their highly successful release with Signum earlier this year, Choral Arrangements by Clytus Gottwald, the Rodolfus Choir perform earlymusic as sensitively and musically as they perform music of the twentieth-century.
