Christian musical tradition in Bulgaria dates back long before Christianity was established as an official state religion (865). According to some records a Christian church convention took place in Serdica (Sofia) in the 4th century. It is believed that the church chants of that time differed from the Byzantium church music. When East Orthodox religion was adopted as a state religion in Bulgaria, King Boris I put an end to this tradition. The Byzantium liturgical services and chants were enforced. Byzantium church music was dominant up to the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, in spite of the recurrent resistance of various groups of society. However, a few sources from that time show that there were attempts to create Bulgarian church music. The works of St. John Koukouzeles date from that time (13-14th c.). This tendency for developing Bulgarian church music was stopped when the country went under Ottoman rule (14th c.). At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century a new movement for reviving the Bulgarian church tradition began. Some Byzantium chants were translated into Slavonic language, and parallel to that original Bulgarian Orthodox chants were created. After the liberation from the Ottoman rule (1878), the service liturgies of the Russian Orthodox Church became dominant. A large number of Bulgarian composers wrote works for the church. They used elements of Old Bulgarian chants and reached the level of the Russian liturgical music. Dobri Hristov, for example, wrote liturgies dedicated to priests and they are still performed at church services. In his first liturgy of St. John Chrysostom he uses Old Bulgarian intonations.
The liturgical chants of Dobri Hristov, Peter Dinev, Apostol Nikolaev-Stroumsky, etc. are a inherent part of church services, just as the Russian chants by Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Nikolai Bakhmetiev …

This is the ninth compact disc issued as a result of the initiative of APS Bank of Malta to record a series of CDs with sacred music composed by Maltese composers (released on the Gega New label). The previous CDs presented works of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. This release takes us back to the 19th century and to one of Malta’s most prominent composers - Pietro Paolo Bugeja. He had initial musical studies in Malta and then went on to Naples to continue them in the Concervatorio di Saint ’Onofrio a Capuana between 1791 and 1797. It was in Naples that he wrote his first grand mass for the liturgy of St. Ivo’s Church. In 1798 he returned to Malta and was assistant to Francesco Azopardi, metrolpolitan maestro di capella at St. John’s Cathedral in Valletta. On Azopardi’s death he was selected to succeed him as maestro both of Mdina Cathedral and St. John’s Cathedral.
Bugeja was a composer, conductor and teacher. This versatile activity contributed a lot to the development of his style as a composer.
Pietro Paolo Bugeja wrote Messa solenne in 1827, mainly to be performed in the Cathedral. A very important element of the Messa solenne is its concise form. It was one of the 19th century’s best-known works. Besides it Bugeja also composed four funeral masses, 20 medium masses, 30 psalms, diverse hymns, antiphons and responses. His orchestral works include 9 sinfonie, probably written for church use, since contemporary norm required a sinfonia to precede important liturgical rites. For this purpose, Bugeja also utilized the sinfonia composed for his oratorio Gioas re di Guida - a large-scale orchestral work, written in the ‘seria’ style. According to Professor Richard Divall of the Faculty of Music, University of Melbourne, “the music of Pietro Paolo Bugeja is unjustly neglected, for the standard of his vocal and orchestral writing is very fine indeed. Stylistically Bugeja looks both back in time to the neo classicism of Gluck, with whom he has a stylistic affinity, and forward to the music of Spontini.”

Heinrich Schütz - Sacred Choral Music - Die Vögel unter dem Himmel

Heinrich Schütz - Sacred Choral Music - Die Vögel unter dem Himmel
ID: DCD34043
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Baroque

The massed voices of the 140-strong National Youth Choir revel in the magnificently soaring lines of Schütz’s sacred music, complemented by John Kitchen’s contributions on the powerful Rieger organ of St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh. Revered by his contemporaries as the ‘Orpheus of our time’, Schütz would never have heard his music performed by forces such as these and on such a scale - surely he would have been a strong advocate of this astounding aural experience. Kitchen’s solo contributions contextualise the choral music with organ works by Samuel Scheidt and other contemporaries of Schütz.

World premiere recording

Now in his early nineties, Francis Jackson remains one of the finest, best loved and most versatile church musicians of our age. The eleven works on this disc, none of them previously recorded, have all the colour, emotional depth and attention to structural detail that are consistent hallmarks of his style. Working closely with the composer, The Exon Singers bring their customary blend of virtuosity, intense commitment and subtle responsiveness to this portrait in sound of a very special composer.

In the 1960s few would have predicted that Peter Maxwell Davies would eventually write a set of Evening Canticles; yet religious texts have always been of fundamental importance to the composer, as this disc vividly demonstrates by bringing together sacred masterworks from both ends of his career. Tough, uncompromising and of surpassing beauty, Davies’ major contributions to the Anglican repertoire are given thrilling voice by these fearless champions of contemporary liturgical music.

Chastised for his 'excesses in life and conversation', Michael Wise was hit about the head and 'kill'd downright' by the night watchman in Salisbury Cathedral, robbing history of one of the period's most prolific and respected composers and St Paul's Cathedral of its forthcoming Master of the Choristers.This recording, the first dedicated to Wise's music, is testament to the more respectable music making that is Wise's legacy.

The Caius singers under Geoffrey Webber serve the music with an ideally informed and energetic rigour, their second volume of music from the Restoration.They take a break from that in July when they partner the choir of Kings College, London to record Shchedrin's The Sealed Angel.

It is easy to forget that our great English choral tradition was once silenced by Act of Parliament. The Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 ushered in one of the finest periods of English music, though the road to recovery for church music was a slow and difficult one. William Turner, then a precocious nine year-old, went on to become one of the best known composers and singers of his day. This premiere recording presents a cross section of Turner's sacred music, ranging from small-scale liturgical works to some of his grandest creations, the Te Deum and Jubilate in D.
