John Blow: Symphony Anthems


Blow:

God spake sometime in visions

Hear my voice, O God

O sing unto the Lord a new song

When the Son of Man

When Israel came out of Egypt

I was glad when they said unto me

JOHN BLOW – mentor, colleague and friend of Purcell – deserves recognition as a major figure in the flourishing of music that followed the Restoration in 1660. This new recording by New College Choir – its first under the direction of Robert Quinney – includes three previously unrecorded symphony anthems, together with ceremonial works written for the coronation of James II and the consecration of the rebuilt St Paul’s Cathedral. Alongside these, Quinney presents the fi rst performance in 400 years of a newly reconstructed verse anthem. New College Choir and St James’ Baroque, playing period instruments, bring Blow’s innovative and strikingly individual voice vividly to life.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2016

“An assured synthesis of elegant musicality, judicious ear for contrapuntal detail and informed scholarship...All the works are given splendid performances which not only remind us that there is more to Blow than merely being Purcell’s mentor but also confirm that New College’s famous choir is in very good hands.”
