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

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 ****

Christmas from Worcester

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.

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

Requiem (A thanksgiving for life)

Adam Lay Ybounden

Advent Calendar

A spotless rose

Jesus Christ the apple tree

O Master, let me walk with Thee

Christ’s journey

This joyful Eastertide

This collection features a varied selection of his beguiling vocal music, both sacred and secular, together with pieces for solo harp, and include Higginson’s two dramatic cycles of choral songs based on texts by William Blake.

The artists on the recording are internationally-renowned soprano, Charlotte de Rothschild, harpist Danielle Perrett, and two acclaimed choirs: the Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir and the Chapel Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, directed by Sarah MacDonald.

All works are new to the catalogue.

“There are only thirteen singers in the Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir but, my goodness, they make a nice sound! Here, the ensemble is pretty flawless and the sound these young singers make is keen, fresh and crystal-clear...There is some very well crafted and appealing music on this disc...Collectors who are interested in English choral music will find much to reward them here.” MusicWeb International, 8th May 2013
