From its famously joyful opening ‘Jauchzet frohlocket’ to the arrival of the Wise Men from the East, the Christmas Oratorio's enduring popularity has long proved its status as a choral ‘evergreen’. As with the St John Passion (8573817-18), the cast for this production is led by Georg Poplutz as the Evangelist.

Alessandro Marangoni, Piano

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.

Commotio • Matthew Berry

Bob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as 'a contemporary hero of British Choral Music', and his music is commissioned and sung by choirs throughout the world. His Christmas pieces, a number of which are heard here in première recordings, reveal his enthusiasm for recently written texts, to which he responds with acute verbal sensitivity. Commotio is one of the UK's foremost chamber choirs, hailing from Oxford, where they have performed choral music of the 20th and 21st centuries since 1999.

Image Messiah
(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.

Image Messiah
Of all English oratorios Handel’s Messiah has always been the most overwhelmingly popular. It is the least theatrical and the most purely sacred in its choice of subject matter. The vivid choral writing – there are more choruses in Messiah than in any other Handel oratorio – coupled with the expressive density of the solo arias, have ensured its status as one of the greatest choral masterpieces in the Western canon.

'The City of Prague Philharmonic proves a first-rate interpreter of these scores, conveying all the music's exuberance and spirit with flawless technical prowess and Technicolor-grade contributions from the winds and brass. Conductor Gavin Sutherland deserves credit for inspired leadership in these all-too-rarely performed works--any one of which would make a guaranteed audience-pleasing addition to a holiday concert.

Image 20 Polish Christmas Carols



"...Det antas att Franciskanermunkar introducerade de första julsångerna i Polen på 1200-talet. Under 1800-talet samlades texter och melodier in av Fader Michal Mioduszewski och Oskar Kolberg, och från dessa sex samlingar (Kraków 1838-89) valde Witold Lutoslawski 20 sånger som han 1946 satte för sopran och piano. Knappt 40 år senare bearbetade han 17 av dem för sopran, damkör och kammarorkester, de resterande tre var klara i sin nya gestaltning 1990, då alla 20 framfördes i Edinburgh. Melodierna är vackra och ovanliga, arrangemangen klangligt, rytmiskt och harmoniskt raffinerade utan att fördärva enkelheten. Den upphöjda atmosfären kring krubban, den folkliga glädjen och de meditativa stämningarna uttrycks charmerande i betagande tolkningar av sopranen Olga Pasichnyk, Polska radiokören Kraków och Polska nationella symfoniorkestern (Katowice) under Anoni Wit. Julsångerna kompletteras av ett Lacrimosa, en mjuk bön för sopran, blandad kör och orkester från 1937 och av Fem sånger för damröst och 30 soloinstrument (1957/58) med alten Jadviga Rappé som solist. I de senare har Lutoslawski tonsatt texter av den litauenfödda poeten Kazimiera Illakowicz (1892-1983) i ett mer avancerat musikaliskt idiom..."

This new sequence of Christmas carols was written in 2007 by the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy and composer Sasha Johnson Manning, and premièred in the same year. The Manchester Carols re-tell the Christmas Story for the 21st Century, celebrating a child's birth and all that child was to become: a man who lived by a humble, selfless creed, championing the marginalised in a society which was, as it is now, fraught with political tensions. These carols are for everybody, the believer and the non-believer, people of other faiths and everyone wishing to join in the Christmas celebrations.

William Mathias was one of the foremost British composers of the 20th century and one of the very few of his generation from Wales who established an international reputation. The lively Christmas sequences Ave Rex and Salvator Mundi contrast with the splendour and tenderness of the rarely-performed anthem An Admonition to Rulers. Also included are the joyful Wassail Carol, the popular organ solo Toccata Giocosa, and première recordings of All thy works shall praise thee and The Lord’s Prayer – respectively the composer’s first and last choral works.

Image Vingt Regards sur l'Enfant Jésus (2 CD)
"Den norske pianisten Håkon Austbö är en god tolkare av den franske tonsättaren Olivier Messiaens musik. Austbö som studerat piano på bland annat Musikkonservatoriet i Paris och på Julliard School of Music i New York har uppmärksammats efter att ha vunnit en rad internationella pianotävlingar. Vingt regards sur l´enfant Jésus (komponerat 1944) som Austbö spelat in 1993 är ett monumentalt verk som inte bara kräver fingerfärdighet utan också god inlevelseförmåga. Verket som på svenska heter Tjugo betraktelser över Jesusbarnet är ett av Olivier Messiaens många verk där bibelordet ligger till grund. Den djupt troende Messiaen har skrivit ett stort antal orkester-, orgel- och pianoverk där hans kristna tro genomsyrar kompositionerna. Bibeln är full av berättelser som genom tiderna tonsatts med varierad musikalisk dräkt. Bach, Händel och på 1900-talet Messiaen är några av de stora som haft Bibeln som rättesnöre. I Vingts regards har Messiaen gett satserna namn som Faderns betraktelse, Genom Honom blev allt till, Tidens betraktelse, Glädjens Andes betraktelse, Korsets betraktelse etc. Verket visar upp en hel värld av uttryck, från meditativt till explosivt. Messiaens musik är glödhet, dramatisk, målande och full av energi. Den är en tydlig förstärkare av de bibliska berättelserna. Austbö lyckas genom varje anslag förmedla Messiaens intentioner på den här strålande inspelningen. Messiaen anställdes som ung 20-åring som organist i La Trinité i Paris. Han fick precis som Håkon Austbö sin musikaliska träning på Pariskonservatoriet och hade där lärare som Marcel Dupré och Paul Dukas. 1940 tillfångatogs Messiaen av tyskarna och komponerade i fångenskap den berömda Kvartetten till tidens ände i fånglägret i Silesia. 1966 blev han professor i komposition och fortsatte att spela i sin kyrka La Trinité fram till sin död 1992. Denne store kompositör kommer att höras betydligt mer nästa år eftersom hans hundraårsjubileum då kommer att uppmärksammas. Bland annat med festivaler i Frankrike förstås men också i Stockholm. Tyvärr spelas hans pianomusik alltför sällan i våra kyrkor. Efter att ha lyssnat på denna skiva så funderar jag på varför."

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.

She began composing in 1997 and has since earned huge admiration for her 'Classical Contemporary' sound world, works of spiritual contemplation and great beauty. Hers is music of great spiritual depth and, whether a cappella or for vocal and instrumental forces, it generates a sense of lyricism and healing resolution.

One of Spain’s finest and most popular composers, Joaquín Rodrigo is world famous for his Concierto de Aranjuez. His songs for voice and guitar are very much less well-known despite the fact that they are amongst his greatest achievements. They span 60 years of his career, covering a rich stylistic range that includes traditional and folk-influenced pieces and carols as well as the lyric intimacy of the settings of Con Antonio Machado. The lovely transcriptions by guitarist Marco Socías, recorded for the first time, have earned the approval of the composer’s daughter.

Composer and pianist Walter Saul is the recipient of 24 ASCAP awards and numerous other honours. His mission as a composer is 'to create musical icons, windows of sonic light' which point towards Christian spirituality. Kiev 2014 reflects on Ukraine's challenges, from the darkness of occupation towards hope and victory. The Violin Concerto is packed with numeric symbolism, while A Christmas Symphony paints four significant scenes from the Nativity. Saul's Overture for the Jubilee explores the history of John Quincy Adams and the abolition of slavery. From Life to Greater Life celebrates the transformation to heavenly immortality, and the profound peace which concludes Metamorphosis stands witness to the inner peace granted to the composer through his faith.

Admired for the sheer beauty of his meditative and mystical music, John Tavener writes of his Ex Maria Virgine, which was dedicated to HRH the Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall in joyful celebration of their marriage: "I have set both familiar and less well known texts, and linked them with an expanding and contracting phrase 'Ex Maria Virgine'. This refers to Mary the Mother of God-'The Eternal Feminine'-and should be sung with great radiance and femininity." The other, mainly unaccompanied, works reveal Tavener's response to various poetic texts that also praise the Virgin Mary.

This penultimate volume of Joaquín Turina’s complete piano works features his “programmatic” pieces: music inspired by local scenes or texts by the late-Romantic poet and author Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer (1836–70). The “tragicomedy” Recuerdos de mi rincón is a lighthearted divertissement with twelve mini-scenes that portray local characters from Turina’s Madrid neighbourhood, while La Venta de los Gatos brims with truly inspired and beautiful moments. El Cristo de la Calavera further reveals Turina’s deft touch for dramatic and picturesque style while faithfully adapting Bécquer’s story to include every detail. Originally composed for a stage drama, Navidad is filled with Christmas carols and traditional melodies.

Image Hodie: Fantasia on Christmas Carols

• Vaughan Williams’s Christmas Cantata Hodie (This Day) is a brilliant mosaic of musical styles set to poetry from the most diverse sources.

• Texts by Milton, Hardy, and George Herbert reflecting various Christmas experiences are bound together by a narration of the Gospel Nativity story sung in unison by a boys’ choir.

• With its gripping blend of mysticism, heavenly glory and human hope, Hodie flows with a vitality and inventiveness that belie a work written in Vaughan Williams’s old age.

• The Fantasia on Christmas Carols, which incorporates a number of traditional English carols, is notable for the obbligato cello part and for the varied treatment of the choir, which provide an atmospheric choral-orchestral texture.

“This is a work that should be done far more often… The clamour of bells, large and small, and of celebration prepare any audience to go out glowing into the snowy night and home.”

Although he remains best remembered for his solo songs, for the song cycle The Curlew, and for his evergreen suite Capriol, Peter Warlock's choral works sit firmly in the great English lineage. The music ranges from Hymns to the Virgin to carols, many spiced with his own 'melody of chords' and his typically tangy harmonies. Some of Warlock's most beautiful and sensitive settings are to be heard, not least Corpus Christi and Bethlehem Down, whilst there is also a very rare setting in Cornish (track 21), recorded for the first time in that language.
