Armenian Sacred Music of the 5th-8th Centuries - Ensemble of Ancient Music of Armenia
Armenian sacred music is one of the most ancient branches of Christian culture. Armenia’s church singing tradition took shape on the basis of its ancient music culture which has been in existence for more than three millenniums. So, the initial branches of the ancient Armenian music - peasant, goosan (music of national singers and poets) and cult (heathen), as well as its monodical (one-voice) rhyme were formed back in the 3rd century BC, during a period when a single-language state was in the making. With adoption of Christianity in the year 301, creation of the Armenian written language, and translation of the bible into the Armenian language (the 5th century), the foundation for development of the Armenian Christian church music became available. The very first sharakans (sacred hymns) were composed by St. Mesrop Mashtots (the creator of the Armenian written language) and St. Sahak Partev (Mashtots’ associate, a supreme patriarch, scholar and translator. The term sharakan originates from an Armenian word shark which stands for a number or succession, and means a sacred song canonized by the church and include in a series of hymns collected in Sharaknotse (Gimnaria) in course of time. These numbers of sacred hymns traditionally included pieces of three genres - ktsurd (troparion), katsurd (kontakion), and canon. Katsurd (kontakion) began to develop in the Armenian sacred arts in late 6th century. The hymn ‘The Souls Who Dedicated Themselves’ by Catholicos Komitas Akhtsetsi is one of the outstanding and highly artistic katsurds of the 7th century. Beingfully based on the national tradition and distinguished with special melodiousness, this piece by Komitas raised the art of Armenian sacred songwriting to a new level and facilitated its further development. Catholicos Nerses Shnorali (12th century) was one of the prominent and most esteemed writers of sacred hymns. His works enriched both the poetic and musical language of the Armenian sacred hymnody. Thanks to him, rhyme became finally firmly established in Armenian poetry. Composer, a laureate of the State Prize of Armenia (2009), Yervand Vaganovich Yerkanian was born on 5 November, 1951, in Leninakan. In 1975, he graduated from the Yerevan Conservatory. Yerkanian is one of the most known and distinctive representatives of contemporary Armenian music. He is an author of numerous works created in various genres - operas, ballets, symphony, chamber and vocal compositions. Historical themes have always been the basis of the composer’s work. In 1987, Yerkanian became an artistic director and conductor of the instrumental ensemble Tagaran. Since then, the ensemble’s repertoire was promptly filled with wonderful renditions of sacred hymns, and very soon after that the ensemble’s name got a world-wide recognition. All renditions and arrangements of the compositions on this album have been done by Yervand Yerkanian. Armenian Sacred Music of the V-XIII Centuries.

Fen And Meadow: Britten Choral Works III - The Sixteen, Harry Christophers

Fen And Meadow: Britten Choral Works III - The Sixteen, Harry Christophers
ID: COR16038
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Choral Collection

The works on this album show some of the breadth and range of Benjamin Britten's choral writing, embracing the masque from his opera 'Gloriana,' his own take on the English part song tradition in 'Five Flower Songs,' and his last work for unaccompanied voices, 'Sacred and Profane.' The latter sets medieval texts described herein as a "mixture of the devotional and the rumbustiously secular." The Sixteen is one of the jewels in the musical crown of Britain, and enjoys a worldwide reputation for clarity and beauty with precision and dramatic intensity.

Kolekce: Sacred MusicPodkolekce: Choir

Brand new recording from The Sixteen (recorded in 2006) features new editions and world premiere recordings. It was largely through the efforts of "Captain" Henry Cooke (c.1615-1672) that the choir of the Chapel Royal was successfully restored at the Restoration in 1660. He invoked ancient press-gang legislation to purloin promising choirboys from cathedrals across the country. Two of them, Pelham Humfrey and John Blow, went on to write groundbreaking music.

Vivald: Gloria in D major / Bach: Magnificat in D major - The Sixteen - H. Christophers

ID: COR16042
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Baroque

About this title: The small British chorus called the Sixteen and director Harry Christophers have delivered consistently popular recordings of Renaissance and Baroque music, maintaining very high standards of performance. Here they couple two of the most popular Baroque works of all, Vivaldi's Gloria in D major, RV 589, and Bach's Magnificat in D major, BWV 243, and the results are handsome indeed. The tenor of the performances flows from the conceptions of each work that Christophers expresses in one of the little personal essays that appears at the beginning of each booklet in this series: Vivaldi, he said, is "effective," and even operates in places here "at his simplest," while Bach is "complex." Some would use other words first, for each composer -- daring or kinetic for Vivaldi, devotional or a dozen other words for Bach. There are recordings that give Vivaldi in general and the Gloria in particular more of an edge; there are recordings of Bach that seem warmer, or more rooted in the sacred texts.

Kolekce: Sacred MusicPodkolekce: Choir

Recorded in November 2006, this disc offers a fascinating collection of works written for the Papal Chapel. Researched and sung by one of the world's leading choirs, The Sixteen and Harry Christophers, this recording includes many world premiere recordings of these rarely heard sacred works. Felice Anerio displays a fluid mastery of the Roman style of composition, and some of his surviving settings are shown to advantage here, in particular his glorious twelve-part setting of Stabat Mater, more ambitious and possibly more beautiful than those by Palestrina and Lassus. Gregorio Allegri is famous for his Miserere (available on coro as cor16014); this recording contains representative examples of his polyphonic style. Together with settings by the towering figure of Palestrina, all receive warm and vital performances.
