Budapest Quartet

In the years 1837-42, Mendelssohn was at the height of his humanist glory, concurrently violinist, viola player, pianist, composer, conductor (of the Gewandhaus in Leipzig), still a painter in his all too rare spare time, and a newlywed… "At the moment, everything comes so easily and so nicely under my pen", he wrote, the Opus 44 Quartets with their radiant, virtuoso allegros and slow movements tinged with nostalgia—irresistible ‘songs without words’ for strings. Schumann’s String Quartets and Piano Quintet are considered his finest compositions and major works of 19th-century chamber music. This Op.44 revolutionised the instrumentation and musical character of the piano quintet and established it as a quintessentially romantic genre.

Vaughan Williams:

Four Hymns


Lawrence Wiliford (tenor), Steven Philcox (piano), Marie Bérard (violin), Keith Hamm (viola)

In collaboration with world-class musicians pianist Steven Philcox, violinist Marie Bérard, and violist Keith Hamm tenor Lawrence Wiliford brings his acclaimed interpretive skill in song to music of early 20th century England that is beautiful, humble, and intimate. This survey of sacred songs and hymns by Gustav Holst, his pupil Edmund Rubbra, and his lifelong friend and colleague Ralph Vaughan Williams, visits the melodic and sacred themes that are common among the three composers. It devotes particular attention to Rubbras songs, which are less well known than many by his two senior colleagues. Edmund Rubbras writing draws from the modal harmonies of early sacred music and Celtic folk traditions. In addition to several songs by Rubbra, O Gladsome Light also includes Variations on a Phrygian Theme for solo violin and Meditations on a Byzantine Hymn for solo viola, two works that highlight the composers lyrical, modal style and feature the soloists Marie Bérard and Keith Hamm. Paired with Rubbra are the Holst Four Songs for voice and violin and the Vaughan Williams Four Hymns for tenor, viola and piano producing a meditative and musically satisfying program of sacred music that can be listened to during Christmas, Lent and throughout the year.

The Choir of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, Stuart Nicholson

This ninth release in Regent’s ‘A Year at...’ series visits Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin – The National Cathedral of Ireland. This rarely-recorded choir is one of Ireland’s greatest musical treasures, with the country’s only choir school, founded in 1432.

The choir combined with that of the nearby Christ Church Cathedral for the first performance of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ in 1742. Today the choir is one of the few remaining that sings Matins daily, in addition to the regular round of daily Evensong and Sunday services.

Our journey through the church’s year begins in Advent and takes in many musical influences specific to Saint Patrick’s.

The choir of men and boys is directed by Stuart Nicholson, who studied at the Royal College of Music from where he graduated with first-class honours, and is a former Director of Music at Waltham Abbey, and a former Assistant Organist of Birmingham Cathedral.

In My Father’s House

In My Father’s House

Choral Music by Philip Stopford


Stopford:

In my Father’s house

Bring us, O Lord God

Ubi caritas

Christ is our cornerstone

Love divine

The chorister prayer

Jesu, lover of my soul

O how glorious

Ave maris stella

Ave Maria

Stabat mater

There is no rose

A child is born in Bethlehem

What sweeter music?

A Christmas Blessing

We three kings

Silent night

The star of kings


Following the world-wide success of Truro Cathedral’s previous recording of Philip Stopford’s music “Do not be Afraid” (REGCD400) we are delighted to announce the release of a second recording. This is an album of moving and uplifting anthems, motets and music for Christmas from an immensely popular and talented composer, performed by Truro Cathedral Choir, with luxurious orchestral accompaniment provided by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, directed by Christopher Gray.

In the last few years Philip Stopford has emerged from among the younger generation of British composers as one of the most popular and prolific writers of new choral music, and is in wide demand on both sides of the Atlantic.

His beautifully-crafted music combines uplifting classic texts with memorable, radiant melodies, and glorious harmonies. This latest recording adds another dimension with wonderfully-colourful and expertly-scored orchestral accompaniments. Truro Cathedral Choir has an unbroken tradition dating back to the 1880s. Today, the choir usually performs with its twelve adult professional singers, joined by either its 18 boy Choristers or its 19 girl Choristers.

Chant sur la mort de Joseph Haydn


Akiho Tsujii (soprano), Martin lattke (tenor) & Paul Kroeger (tenor)

Kammerchor der Frauenkirche Dresden & Orchestre Philharmonique Altenburg-Gera, Matthias Grünert

Beethoven praised him as "one of the greatest dramatic composers”: Luigi Cherubini is one the musical stars of the 18th and 19th centuries whose timbre-rich Requiem in C minor was particularly esteemed by his contemporaries. Cherubini in turn was an admirer of Joseph Haydn’s music. He was deeply shocked when he learned of Haydn’s death and worked through his grief in his touching Chant sur la Mort de Joseph Haydn. But like today, rumors and facts back in 1805 were hard to distinguish from each other: one can only imagine how Cherubini must have reacted when he found out that Haydn was still feeling quite well at this time. With his powerful funeral music, Cherubini wrote music history, and yet many of these wonderful works are only now being edited. With the support of the International Cherubini Society, the Dresden Frauenkirche Chamber Choir and the Philharmonic Orchestra Altenburg-Gera under the direction of Matthias Grünert, cantor of the Frauenkirche, have selected the most moving works of Luigi Cherubini’s rich creative output in order to create a portrait one of the greatest dramatic composers.

Trinity Boys Choir & Hand Bells Choir Gotha, David Swinson

Trinity Boys Choir is one of the busiest and most successful ensembles of its kind. The young singers perform regularly at the concert and opera houses in Milan, Paris, and London, where they have appeared alongside the great stars of the music world, including Sir Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir. For ‘Candlemas’, the ambitious choir have put together an inspiring programme: assisted by musicologists and composers, Nicholas Ludford’s (1485-1557) Missa Dominica was edited meticulously and is provided with a fitting context on this recording by medieval vocal music as well as contemporary works. This disc is not only a real asset for music scholarship but, first and foremost, a true feast for listeners: the singers’ brilliant voices merge beautifully with the sound of the organ and are enriched with additional tone-colours by the Hand Bells Choir Gotha.
