The Choir of Birmingham Cathedral, Marcus Huxley

This recording was inspired by a unique collaboration between Tony Iommi (lead guitarist of Black Sabbath), the Dean of Birmingham, and the Cathedral Choir, gifting the download-only track, How Good It Is to the City of Birmingham. (Details at www.birminghamcathedral.com), released in January 2017.

This new disc follows that with a collection of favourite anthems for the church’s year, and includes three works written over the last twenty years for Birmingham Cathedral and here receiving their first recording. The musical tradition of Birmingham’s Anglican Cathedral is one of the city’s greatest glories. The Cathedral Choir, comprises three sections (men, boys and girls) who perform both separately and in various combinations, They sing services in the Cathedral several times each week during school term time, give concerts in the Cathedral, and perform at other venues in the Midlands and beyond.

The Choristers attend 12 different schools around the City, while the adult singers are either students or they follow a variety of occupations. The Choir has toured regularly in Britain and Europe. Their repertoire extends from plainchant to recent compositions, some specially commissioned for the Choir, and they broadcast regularly live on BBC Radio 3. Other recent projects have included a collaboration with the internationally-known artist Roger Hiorns, which entailed singing Choral Evensong in a recumbent position.

In 2017 Marcus Huxley, the Cathedral’s Director of Music retires after thirty-one years. He is an Honorary Canon of the Cathedral, and an Honorary Fellow of Birmingham Conservatoire.

Peerson: A Treatie of Humane Love - Mottects or Grave Chamber Musique (1630)


James Johnstone (organ)

I Fagiolini, Fretwork

Following on from Fretwork’s acclaimed release on Regent of Sublime Discourses (REGCD341), which featured the complete instrumental music of John Milton and Martin Peerson, I Fagiolini and Fretwork come together with organist James Johnstone for the première recording of Peerson’s A Treatie of Humane Love.

Newly edited by Richard Rastall, this collection of song settings of poetry by Sir Fulke Greville, focusses predominantly on the subject of love, making it an ideal counterpoint to St Valentine’s Day.

Martin Peerson (c1572–1651) has been known since the mid-20th century as an engaging and very performable composer with a highly individual voice; but in his own time he was much respected and published, perhaps the most able of those composers who were not in royal service.

This release is a major contribution to the discography of 17th century English music in incomparable performances from some of the world’s finest artists in the field.

“Fretwork’s musical mastery and I Fagiolini’s trademark incandescent sound are perfectly married in this repertoire…[the directors carry] the music from profundity to gentle humour, spotlighting varied textures and accents within these often-characterful vignettes…from the subtle colours of James Johnstone’s continuo tapestry to sumptuous low vocal notes, the clarity of recording is exceptional” BBC Music Magazine, April 2017 ****

A tribute to Sir David Willcocks


1 O come, all ye faithful

2 Sussex Carol

3 God rest you merry, gentlemen

4 Ding, dong! merrily on high

5 Whence is that goodly fragrance flowing?

6 Angelus ad virginem

7 Once in royal David’s city

8 The infant King

9 Gabriel’s message

10 Unto us is born a son

11 Cherry tree carol

12 Rocking

13 While shepherds watched

14 Tomorrow shall be my dancing day

15 Infant holy, infant lowly

16 It came upon the midnight clear

17 Away in a manger

18 I saw three ships

19 The first nowell

20 Resonemus laudibus

21 O come, O come, Emmanuel

22 Deck the hall

23 Hark, the herald-angels sing


Christopher Allsop (organ)

Worcester Festival Choral Society, Sennet Brass, Peter Nardone

Sir David Valentine Willcocks CBE MC (30 December 1919–17 September 2015) was one of the most influential choirmasters of his age, working with singers of all ages, moulding voices and raising standards in all his work.

Following his early years as a chorister at Westminster Abbey, this Cornish youngster went on to study at Clifton College Bristol, The Royal College of Music for a year and then King’s College Cambridge as organ scholar, where he was to return later in life to bring fame to the choir and college, through the already well-established Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols broadcast by the BBC each Christmas Eve.

Between 1950 and 1957 he was organist of Worcester Cathedral, principal conductor of the Three Choirs Festival in 1951, 1954, and 1957, and conductor of the City of Birmingham Choir.

A lasting legacy is his editorship of the early volumes in the Carols for Choirs series. These volumes contain many arrangements by Sir David himself, all of which have become choral classics and well-loved by singers and listeners alike. This recording features twenty three of his best-known arrangements, ranging from exquisite gems of quiet stillness to rousing shouts of majestic praise, sung by the Choir of Worcester Cathedral. The Cathedral Choir is joined by the Worcester Festival Choral Society and Sennet Brass for the magnificent large-scale favourites, including O come, all ye faithful and Hark! the herald-angels sing.

This recording has been supported by a generous legacy to Worcester Cathedral from the estate of the late Sir David Willcocks.

With music from 16th-century France to 21st-century Hollywood there’s something for everyone in this well-filled Christmas cracker!

An attractive new collection of festive music from this much-fêted Cambridge college choir, under the direction of Sarah MacDonald. In addition to some well-loved favourites and less familiar items, there are several first recordings of new carols and carol arrangements. Particularly delicious – and being heard here for the first time – are new close-harmony arrangements by the choir’s director Sarah MacDonald of the popular Christmas songs ‘Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer’, ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’, and ‘White Christmas’.

Respighi, Poulenc & Rheinberger: Concertos for Organ and Orchestra

Respighi, Poulenc & Rheinberger: Concertos for Organ and Orchestra


Poulenc:

Concerto in G minor for Organ, Strings & Timpani

Respighi:

Suite in G for Strings and Organ

Rheinberger:

Organ Concerto No. 1 in F, Op. 137


Poulenc’s dramatic, expressive and wild patchwork quilt, together with Respighi’s opulent and luxurious homage to the eighteenth century, and Rheinberger’s gloriously melodic and virtuoso nineteenth-century grand concerto with its echoes of Schumann.

“I place King’s performance up with the best” (Poulenc) American Record Guide 2008

“This disc presents three of the finest organ/orchestra collaborations in the repertoire.....The performances of all three works are outstanding; it would be difficult to imagine any better. Bathed in the fine acoustic of Bath Abbey, the strings and horns produce a lush, luminous, vibrant, clear, robust sound that is matched by the clarity, color, cohesion and brilliance of the superb Klais organ. The well-balanced and blended sonorities are skillfully reproduced by the recording technicians. This recording is to be cherished for the beauty of the sound, the music and the exceptional performances.” The American Organist September 2009

Paul Carr (Organ of St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham)

The first solo recording of the magnificent Walker organ in St Chad’s Cathedral, played by Birmingham-based organist, Paul Carr, in his début recording.

A brilliantly-colourful programme of French and French-inspired works, chosen to match the distinctively-Gallic character of the St Chad’s organ.

Includes many works new to the catalogue.

A must-hear recording of this wonderful recently-built organ, and some little-known new works.

“Paul Carr shows himself to be an imaginative player with an ear for colour. In Dupre's Deux esquisses he has all the virtuosity required.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2013 ***

Michael Chance (countertenor) & Sophie Yates (virginals)

Fretwork

A major new release from 2009 Gramophone Award-winning artists, FRETWORK.

With additional contributions from Michael Chance and Sophie Yates.

The first recording of the complete instrumental music of two unjustly neglected 17th century English composers, Martin Peerson and John Milton (father of the poet).

Includes all the works for viol consort, all the solo keyboard works and the single song with viol consort accompaniment.

23 of the 25 items are new to the catalogue.

A significant and invaluable contribution to the discography of 17th century English music in incomparable performances from some of the world’s finest artists in this field.

Sadly this was one of the final recordings that Richard Campbell made with Fretwork before his death in March 2011.

“Fretwork here unveils some obscure but engaging works from the golden age of English consort...Fretwork responds with playing that ranges from buoyant and capricious to episodes of high seriousness. Throughout, we hear the flawless technique and luminous sound that have helped to establish Fretwork's reputation as one of today's leading viol consorts.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2012 *****

“This apt album title never seems far away during these exquisitely conceived performances of 20 consort pieces in five or six parts. Fretwork play with gentle mastery of affect...Sophie Yates exercises her beguiling touch in four keyboard pieces by Peerson...The generation of composers active in the years prior to the English Civil War is somewhat forgotten, so this harmonious match of Rastall's scholarly research and Fretwork's fine musicianship is priceless.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2012
