Choir of New College Oxford, under ledning av Edward Higginbottom, räknas som en av världens bästa körer. De använder sig av gossopraner istället för kvinnliga sopraner, som på Bachs tid, vilket skapar en mycket skir och homogen klang.


Som solister finner vi bl a den legendariske countertenoren James Bowman och tenoren James Gilchrist, som båda tidigare varit medlemmar i Choir of New College Oxford. Sopranariorna framförs, på tidstroget maner, av en gossopran.

This disc presents the world première recordings of Four Songs of the Nativity, commissioned by The Book Club for The Bach Choir and London Brass, and Blake's second dramatic oratorio, The Passion of Mary, commissioned by The Summer Music Society of Dorset in association with South West Arts. 'The Passion of Mary draws together the Stabat Mater, the Magnificat, the Salve Regina and other Marian and Nativity texts with the wisdom of a Berlioz. The outcome is a splendid, highly accessible choral work.' Roderick Dunnett (reviewing the London première for Church Times)

Renowned worldwide in his lifetime and remembered today as a double bass virtuoso, Giovanni Bottesini excelled in every branch of musicianship, but his operas and sacred works were overshadowed by those of Verdi and have fallen into neglect. Composed in response to the death of his brother Luigi, Bottesini's large scale Requiem combines ecclesiastical counterpoint with formal innovation and the expressive lyricism and dramatic orchestration of operatic models.

Brahms's A German Requiem, almost certainly triggered by the death of his mother in 1865, is one of his greatest and most popular works, quite unlike any previous Requiem. With texts taken from Luther's translation of the Bible and an emphasis on comforting the living for their loss and on hope of the Resurrection, the work is deeply rooted in the tradition of Bach and Schu¨tz, but is vastly different in character from the Latin Requiem of Catholic tradition with its evocation of the Day of Judgement and prayers for mercy on the souls of the dead.

The longest work in Brahms's entire oeuvre, A German Requiem was almost certainly triggered by the death of his mother, although it also seems likely that the tragic loss of his friend Robert Schumann, some years earlier, added to its depth and eloquence. Taking inspiration from Bach's contrapuntal genius but avoiding overt religious tradition, Brahms chose the texts himself, placing an emphasis on an affirmation of life with the suggestion that he would gladly have substituted 'human' for 'German' in the title. This release joins Antoni Wit's 'richly satisfying' (Gramophone) recording of Brahms Choral Music [8.572694].

Giacomo Carissimi was one of the most admired of seventeenth-century Italian composers. The maestro from Marino, near Rome, acquired a Europe-wide fame at an early age and excelled in church music. Commonly employing texts that modify or amplify passages from the scriptures, rather than taking those texts verbatim, Carissimi employed all his genius for vocal melodic lines and accompanying instrumentation to fashion a sequence of spellbinding masterpieces. Foremost among these is Usquequo peccatores which, through its size and length, blurs the very distinction between motet and oratorio. This is the fourth Naxos release of music by Carissimi from this ensemble.

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco was Jewish by culture but regularly composed on Biblical themes. A meditation on stories from the New Testament in music of tender simplicity, moving lyricism and potent drama, the epic but rarely-heard Evangélion starts with The Annunciation and concludes with The Last Words and The Resurrection. Composed in 1947 soon after the death of the composer's father, the work was possibly conceived after a visit to the Acolman Convent in Mexico. This is its first complete recording. Alessandro Marangoni can also be heard in Castelnuovo-Tedesco's two Piano Concertos [8.572823], described as a "delectable treat" by Gramophone.

Domenico Cimarosa's abilities as an operatic composer are evident in his large-scale Requiem in which the soloists and chorus range from the mournful supplication of the opening movements, through vivid evocations of the 'day of wrath' and the praises uttered by the heavenly hosts in the Sanctus, to the prayers for mercy, peace and eternal light which conclude the work. Composed to commemorate the death in 1787 of the wife of the French ambassador in St Petersburg, its overall character is one of classical restraint.

Alongside his creativity as a 'Poet-Musician', Peter Cornelius was a devout Christian who wrote church music throughout his life. His groundbreaking sacred songs include strokes of genius such as the Vater unser or Lord's Prayer cycle, which adapts plainsong chant into a deeply personal musical language. The Marienlieder mix sacred and erotic vocabulary, combining the lyrical inwardness and more passionate tones also reflected in the Ave Maria. Unusual for their numerous revisions, the Weihnachtslieder are successful contributions to the Christmas music of Cornelius's time. This is the last of a four-volume edition of Peter Cornelius's complete songs.

Antonín Dvorák's huge popularity in England was built largely on the success of his Stabat Mater, which he had conducted there in 1884 and 1885. It was well suited to the country's choral traditions and led eventually to a commission for a Requiem, which was premièred in Birmingham in 1891. Written in ten months during tours to Russia, England and Germany, its success was immediate. Sitting closer to the tradition of Cherubini than Verdi, its tone is compassionate and reflective, devoid of unnecessary drama, and movingly crafted with great sophistication.

Bach's predecessor at the Leipzig Thomasschule, and a prolific composer with a contemporary reputation throughout Germany, Johann Friedrich Fasch composed works for the Lutheran church service as well as secular instrumental works, including overtures (suites), symphonies, partitas and a large amount of varied chamber music. His Passio Jesu Christi is a setting of the so-called Brockes Passion, known for its overt sentimentality and theatricality, which was also set by Handel and by Telemann, among others.

The small-scale motet was at the heart of daily and weekly musical practice in the Roman Catholic Church of the mid-seventeenth century. One of the genre's most distinguished exponents was the maestro di cappella in the Jesuit Church in Rome, Bonifazio Graziani. An ordained priest, he was commissioned by Pope Innocent X to compose solemn music for the 'most holy year' of 1650, and his works were in demand across Europe. His elegant mixture of text, melody, and harmonic accompaniment is highly distinctive, with the two oratorios revealing the extent of his compositional breadth.

(1751 version) (New College Oxford Choir, Academy of Ancient Music, E. Higginbottom)

Handel’s most popular and joyous oratorio, a work of unfailing melodic invention and dramatic expressiveness, has become almost a British national institution, regularly performed by all manner of choirs and orchestras. This new recording provides the only modern re-
construction of Handel’s unique London performances in 1751, when he used boy treble voices not only for the choruses but for the arias as well. It is both a celebration of the British chapel choir tradition and a window onto a particular time and place in the history of Handel’s own performances of his masterpiece.

Together with the Missa Cellensis, the Stabat Mater (1767) was one of the first sacred works that Haydn composed in his new position as Kapellmeister of the Esterházy court. The Virgin Mary's vast range of emotions during the Crucifixion are reflected in Haydn's music through various musical techniques, including word-painting and even subtle elements of characterisation. Performed in Vienna in 1768, the Stabat Mater became Haydn's most popular sacred work and was circulated widely in his lifetime.

The Missa Cellensis (or Cäcilienmesse) was Haydn's first Mass setting for his new employers at Eszterháza. In common with his Stabat Mater (8.572121), Haydn draws upon the wealth of musical styles and traditions associated with the Viennese Mass. Scored for strings, oboes, bassoon, trumpets, timpani and organ, plus soloists and choir, the work may originally have comprised the Kyrie and Gloria alone, with the other sections added in the mid-1770s. The final version, heard here, triumphantly concludes at 'Dona nobis pacem' with a grand fugue.

The request for Haydn to write The Seven Last Words came from a priest in Cádiz to mark Good Friday. Setting the words of Christ gave Haydn the basis for the construction of seven slow and meditative movements to be played by the orchestra as the Bishop descended from the pulpit to pray. The following year Haydn arranged the work for string quartet and a version for keyboard was prepared. To this version, which he did not prepare himself, Haydn gave his wholehearted approval noting that it was 'very good and made with particular care'.

Like Mahler's 'Resurrection' Symphony which was premièred the following year (8.550523-24), it evokes the soul's spiritual struggle against fate from tragedy to triumph. The resplendent Prologue from Karlowicz's music for the play The White Dove leads to a serene Intermezzo. Polish conductor Antoni Wit brings out the brooding, portentous and lyrical characteristics of his compatriot's richly orchestrated yet seldom-heard scores.

Kenneth Leighton was one of Britain's most important 20th-century composers, best known for his organ, choral and orchestral works. His style is a distinctive mix of melodic lyricism, masterly counterpoint and dynamic rhythmic energy. Et Resurrexit builds into a cataclysmic climax, symbolizing the soul's struggle for belief in Christ's resurrection, while his Hymn Fantasies abound in fascinating polyphony. Missa de Gloria 'Dublin Festival Mass', based on an ancient plainchant from the Sarum rite for Easter Sunday, uses the full resources and colours of the solo organ to express the drama and mystery of the Catholic liturgy.

Under mitten av 1800-talet var det populärt med s k passionoratorier i Tyskland. De bestod av bibliska texter med recitativ, koraler etc och var i mångt och mycket i J S Bachs tradition. 1829 uppfördes Bachs "Matteuspassion" av en ung Felix Mendelssohn. Detta skapade ett enormt intresse för äldre sakral musik och påverkade t ex tonsättare såsom Carl Loewe.

World-renowned conductor Bruno Walter was particularly well acquainted with Gustav Mahler's work, and was employed as his assistant at the Hamburg Opera at the time Mahler's Second Symphony was given its première in Berlin. Walter prepared his precise and imaginative "reduction for piano" soon afterwards and in close collaboration with the composer. Bruno Walter regarded the 'Resurrection' Symphony as one of his mentor's key works, from the "dramatic struggles" of the first movement to the "lightning bolt" that inspired its sublime choral finale.

Admired for his fusion of German and Italianate musical elements, Johann Simon Mayr is increasingly recognised as one of the most intriguing and influential composers of his time. His Requiem in G minor is shrouded in compositional obscurity but it is clear that the published version is surpassed both in scale and instrumentation by the elaborate edition performed here, which has been assembled from the autograph manuscripts. Small sections were composed by Donizetti and then corrected by his teacher, Mayr. Church style and more Romanticised elements are finely balanced in this important example of Mayr's compositional language.

Olivier Messiaen's early organ works helped establish him as a towering figure of 20th century music. L'Ascension is the most significant of these, with its solemn majesty, dazzling colours and near-static serenity and timelessness. These qualities were already present in Le Banquet céleste, Messiaen's first published organ work, and in Apparition de l'Église éternelle - a powerful representation of the eternal church emerging and fading from view. The two works discovered posthumously in 1997, Prélude and Offrande au Saint-Sacrement, show the influence of Dupré and Tournemire. Tom Winpenny's acclaimed recording of Messiaen's La Nativité du Seigneur can be heard on Naxos 8.573332.

Spanish - and Catalan music in particular - was hugely enriched by the contribution made to its development in the latter part of the twentieth-century by Xavier Montsalvatge. Both as a composer and critic, his influence was widespread, and his music stylistically broad. Folia daliniana explores elements of fantasy and French-tinged refinement whilst one of his major song cycles, Cinco invocaciones al Crucificado, is a passionately intense meditation on Christ's suffering. Whether rhapsodic or invoking rhythmic or popular dance forms, Montsalvatge's music remains brilliant, clear and individualistic.

Penderecki's Utrenja was inspired by the Orthodox liturgy for Holy Saturday with its focus on the lamentation of Christ's death and the Easter Sunday morning service commemorating the Resurrection. The composer remarks that 'Utrenja is a combination of pure, a cappella vocal writing and orchestral effects (for strings and percussion) very much connected with electronic music'. Enthusiastically received by audiences, it stands beside his Polish Requiem (8.557386-87) and St Luke Passion (8.557149) as one of the towering masterpieces of modern Polish music.

Of Ukrainian origin, Boris Pigovat is now based in Israel where he has won several distinguished national awards. His Holocaust Requiem received the ACUM prize in 1995, and was premièred at a concert dedicated to the massacre of Jews at Babi Yar. Each movement is named after the Latin Mass text, the emotional symbols of sorrow, suffering and hope expressed purely instrumentally but led by the 'human' voice of the viola.

The deliberately Russian Romantic style of Poem of Dawn was especially chosen by the composer for the work's dedicatee, acclaimed violist Anna Serova.

Much decorated by his native country, António Pinho Vargas, originally best known for his jazz performances, is now one of Portugal's leading classical composers. His instrumental and film music has won numerous awards, and his chamber works have been performed by some of the world's leading ensembles. In turning to the sacred, Pinho Vargas has crafted music of moving declamatory power. He has organized Judas into five specific scenes with an epilogue, whilst the Requiem is a very personal and powerful reply, in the composer's words, 'to a history of numerous works of the past'.

Image Mass in G major
Brought up in the Roman Catholic faith, which he abandoned in 1917 following the death of his father, Poulenc returned to the Church in 1936 after the death of his close friend and fellow composer Pierre-Octave Ferroud. Together these events caused a spiritual crisis in Poulenc's life which led to a series of important compositions for chorus.The powerful Mass in G major, dedicated to the memory of his father, is notable for its daring use of tonality, though the playfulness of Poulenc's 'Les Six' period is not absent. In the Sept Chansons, set to surrealist texts, and in the two sets of Motets - both very personal and penitential - Poulenc generates a huge range of emotion.These are popular examples of Poulenc's vocal music. They appear in a big multi-disc EMI boxed retrospective. Many have recorded the great Mass in G major - the American conductor Robert Shaw coupled it with the Quatre Motets pour le temps de Noel - in an all-Poulenc 2003 disc for Telarc. But many conductor such as Haitink, Hickox, Dutoit, Pretre and Ozawa have also recorded the Masse. The Sept Chansons are popular - they feature on a Channel Classics disc with the Mass and Fugure humaine -but also in mixed recitals alongside vocal music by Hindemith, Debussy and Ravel, for example, on Capriccio.

Rossini’s Stabat Mater is one of the staples of the sacred music repertoire but had a complicated history. He wrote it for performance in Madrid but, running short of time, enlisted the help of his friend Giovanni Tadolini. Rossini completed six pieces, Tadolini seven. Tadolini’s pieces now only exist as piano reductions but conductor Antonino Fogliani has orchestrated them to allow listeners to hear the original work for the first time since 1833. Marco Taralli’s 2009 orchestration of Giovanna d’Arco (Joan of Arc), a cantata for solo voice, is also heard on this first recording.

Carl Rütti's choral music is 'sensuous and exuberant by turns, combining dazzling rhythms and soaring melodies with distinctively lush harmonies' (Choir & Organ magazine). Of his Requiem, immense in scale yet often intimate in tone, the composer writes that 'no words are strong enough to express the feelings of the bereaved, nor sufficient to explain what will await us after death. Music may be the most appropriate language'. Scored for soprano, baritone, double choir, strings, harp and organ, Rütti's Requiem ultimately affirms life's precious fragility.

Domenico Scarlatti is known today for his many harpsichord sonatas. The earlier part of his career, however, was concentrated on sacred and secular vocal music. While his Te Deum was probably written for Lisbon, the other works included here come from Scarlatti’s earlier period in Rome, where he was employed for a time at Santa Maria Maggiore and officially at the papal Cappella Giulia. The best known example of Scarlatti’s church music is his Stabat Mater. A remarkable synthesis of the old and the new, the work is scored for ten voices, two five part choirs, and continuo; all voices are seldom heard together but are deployed in a series of contrasting and sometimes florid textures.

Choral music was central to Charles Villiers Stanford's life as a composer. Balancing solemnity with rapturous affirmation. The Resurrection was his first major choral work, written while he was studying under Carl Reinecke in Leipzig and anticipating Mahler's use of Klopstock's eponymous poem in his "Resurrection" Symphony. The dramatic, at times almost operatic and Wagnerian Stabat Mater is a cantata with two purely orchestral movements suggestive of a large-scale symphony, while Song to the Soul contains some of Stanford's most exhilarating utterances, though it was never performed in his lifetime.

The Clarion Choir / Steven Fox

Passion Week is a long-lost choral masterpiece composed by Rimsky-Korsakov’s favourite student, heir apparent and son-in-law, Maximilian Steinberg. A product of his interest in the sacred and mystical, it is a tour de force of the systematic use of medieval Church Slavonic chant melodies and shares with Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil the colourful use of choral textures. Steinberg’s settings are complex and rich, with a diverse and sometimes daring harmonic palette, offering eleven movements of distinctive and expressive content that reveal an artist’s search for identity at a time of increasing hostility to religion.

All the choral works on this recording are as firmly embedded in Christian musical tradition as they are recognisably of their period.

Using a wideranging selection of Biblical verses, it takes the form of a dramatic dialogue between two choirs, a ‘chorus of mourners’ and a ‘chorus of the faithful’, concerning eternal life. Recorded here for the first time in its complete form, this Requiem is an emotional and dramatically intense journey of conflict and resolution, and entirely unique within American music history and the requiem tradition as a whole.

Charles Wood made an important contribution to Anglican church music, with liturgical settings that remain part of cathedral choral repertoire. Answering a request from Eric Milner-White, the then Dean of King’s College, Cambridge, Wood completed his setting of the St Mark Passion in August 1920. As with J.S. Bach’s inclusion of Lutheran chorales in his St John Passion, here the flow of the biblical narrative in English, interspersed with well-known hymns for choir and congregation, provides the key to the work’s success.

These three pairs of sublime choral settings span well over 350 years. The earliest is Allegri's Miserere, a work considered so precious it was kept secret until Mozart heard it and famously transcribed it from memory. James MacMillan's 21st century companion piece is a transcendent reply to this challenge from history. Malipiero's and Pizzetti's resumption of a fractured friendship resulted in their mutually dedicated but differing settings of De profundis. Puccini's brief but exquisite Requiem commemorated the death of Verdi, while Pizzetti, a late admirer of Puccini, revealed his empathy with vocal polyphony in a full setting of the Requiem Mass.

Songs and instrumental music celebrated its mystical power and were composed by some of the greatest troubadours, mystics and singer-poets of the age: Chrétien de Troyes, Walther von der Vogelweide, Wolfram von Eschenbach, and Hildegard of Bingen.
