Septura

Brass instruments are almost a Christmas cliché: synonymous with the celebration, but perhaps not with the wealth of great music that it has inspired. Septura sets out to rectify this, re-imagining for brass septet the Christmas offerings of the greatest composers of the past 450 years. Pushing the combinations and colours of the septet to the limits, the result is a virtuosic and varied selection of festive favourites.

“This new anthology by Septura, an elite group drawing on the finest players in London, is just the ticket. The selections range widely, from the golden sonorities of Schütz’s Geistliche Chormusik to a clever antiphonal arrangement of Leontovych’s Carol of the Bells. Three rousing numbers from Handel’s Messiah cap a recital so entertaining that the missing words don’t matter” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016 ****

“Brass at Christmas might well be a cliché but when it is as good as this that is no penalty.” MusicWeb International, 13th December 2016

Sam Corkin (saxophones)

Siglo de Oro, Patrick Allies

Siglo de Oro’s first commercial recording sees the choir and its director Patrick Allies in collaboration with saxophonist Sam Corkin. Their intriguing programme highlights the saxophone's natural kinship with the human voice, as well as the endless expressive possibilities which this versatile instrument stimulates in the imaginations of modern composers. Its athletic vigour launches Will Todd’s O Wisdom, the first of eight settings of the Advent antiphons in English which, having been commissioned by the present artists, now form the backbone of this recording. Elsewhere the instrument soars above the voices’ urgent prophecy and imploration, while the choir is heard unaccompanied in glowing renditions of sixteenth-century polyphony – works by Pierre Certon, Antoine de Mornable, Michael Praetorius and Josquin des Prez, whose music complements the atmosphere of quiet expectancy proper to Advent. -

“Invigorating… Professional London startups can sound frustratingly generic but this one hits you with its character and depth” Gramophone Magazine, December 2016

“This marvellous disc offers a stimulating new slant on the music of Advent. Don’t pass it by as “just another Christmas disc”. This is highly original and superbly performed. Siglo de Oro have made a most auspicious debut on disc” MusicWeb International, December 2016

“a debut with a difference... A novel, ungimmicky project, vividly executed” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

There are few choirs around today who can match the unbridled excellence of Trinity Cambridge. On this new album we find great carols both old and new. Add in some astonishing fresh arrangements and we have twenty-one tracks of pure festive indulgence—Yule love it!

“All the popular selections…sound notably relaxed and idiomatic, the choir's stylistic versatility confidently demonstrated.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 *****

“Highlights for me are two new works by the young Trinity alumnus Owain Park (b.1993): an easy-on-the-ear ‘Cradle Song’ which put me a little in mind of Bob Chilcott, and a dazzling setting of ‘Tomorrow shall be my dancing day’, full of fiendishly intricate part-writing which the fresh-voiced, well-schooled Trinity singers despatch with total aplomb.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 4th December 2015

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

Stile Antico’s new Christmas programme of Renaissance polyphony features a glorious mass by the Flemish master Clemens non Papa, alongside traditional old-German carols and motets, many of them still sung to this day. An irresistibly festive collection to further celebrate Stile's 10th anniversary year!

“The sinuous yearning of Clemens's Agnus Dei is…a triumph of fluid phrasing and dynamic shaping, and a reminder of the formidable credentials of this group” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 ****

“I cannot speak too highly of this fine choir or this new release. They are beautifully recorded at All Hallows Church, Gospel Oak, London, UK and there are excellent notes in the nicely illustrated booklet, together with full texts and translations. A Wondrous Mystery from this Wondrous Choir. Buy, sit back and enjoy!” The Classical Reviewer, December 2015

“Hieronymus Praetorius’ extensive, polychoral Magnificat with its antiphonal opportunities is enlivened by some perceptive word-painting and is memorably performed, as is everything in this desirable seasonal offering … With a well-judged, sympathetic SACD church recording and a fine booklet this can be added to the long list of recommendable offerings from Stile Antico” MusicWeb International, 30th November 2015

“as usual, Stile sing with exemplary blend, clarity and precision, all of which appear more impressive than ever in the intricacies of the Clemens Mass but also make Michael Praetorius’s little gem ‘Es ist ein Ros ensprungen’ really sparkle.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 4th December 2015

“The Lutheran works are sung with sprightly and attractive energy...Stile Antico have a considered, homogeneous sound that is extremely sonically beautiful … However one prefers polyphony to be sung, there is no denying that this is sure to be a justly popular Christmas choice. It is a smooth and assured album and both the ensemble sound and the individual voices are extremely attractive.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2015

“Clemens's gentle ‘Missa Pastores’ threads through carols and motets that include Praetorius’s setting of ‘Es Ist Ein Ros Entsprungen’, but there is a richness too, in Jacob Handel’s ‘Mirabile Mysterium’, which depicts the mystery of God born as man, the chromatic crunches that slip and slide in and out of reach are intoxicating.” The Independent on Sunday, 13th December 2015

“every bit as excellent as we have come to expect from Stile Antico.” MusicWeb International, 10th December 2015

“Stile Antico has produced another pure-voiced, imaginatively programmed disc.” The Observer, 13th December 2015

“remarkably with “A Wondrous Mystery” Stile Antico have created a festive album that you’ll be more than happy to play any week of the year … Stile Antico delightfully evoke the spirit of the season without any of the associated clichés.” Classical Ear, 29th January 2016

Choir of Clare College, Cambridge & Dmitri Ensemble, Graham Ross

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

Under the direction of Graham Ross, the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and The Dmitri Ensemble celebrate the legacy of European and English carols in this Christmas program. Listeners will enjoy settings by Praetorius and Bach alongside later examples by Mendelssohn, Schoenberg, Britten and Tavener.

“Mathias's A babe is born typifies the choir's nimble alacrity, crisply accompanied by the Dmitri Ensemble.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 ****

“like their lovely Advent collection...it strikes a great balance between the familiar (Vaughan Williams’s The Truth Sent from Above, Britten’s A Boy was born, a handful of well-known carols by Michael Praetorius, all beautifully sung by the clear-voiced sopranos and full but never precocious lower voices) and the unexpected.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 1st December 2014

“no ordinary seasonal offering” Financial Times, 20th December 2014

“what makes this disc a little special is that Ross is every bit as interested in carols that come from the popular folk tradition. The choir throw themselves with vigour and success into numbers like Ríu, ríu chíu or Praetorius’ chorale settings, which have more than a slight air of the dance to them … Instrumentally, in a few numbers they are supported ably by The Dmitri Ensemble.” MusicWeb International, 18th December 2014

Musica Sacra, Indra Hughes

This beautiful album from one of NZ's leading choirs is a sequel to the very successful “Christmas a cappella”, No 1 in the NZ classical charts in 2001.

This second programme of unaccompanied Christmas choral music is performed by one of New Zealand’s most successful choirs and includes a wide variety o pieces: some well known Chirstmas favourites; some familiar tunes in new arrangments; and some pieces that have not been recorded before. The music ranges from the sixteenth century to the present day, with composers from America, Germany, Austria, England, Ireland, France, Italy and New Zealand.

Musica Sacra, established in 1998, is a chamber choir of around 35 voices with an enviable reputation for choral singing of magnificence and extraordinary finesse. Founded and directed by Dr Indra Hughes, "New Zealand music's Richie McCaw" (New Zealand Listener, December 2011) the choir is recognised as one of New Zealand's foremost cultural assets.

“all concerned cope very well with the wide variety of material on offer, from the traditional via the renaissance and baroque to the comparatively modern.” MusicWeb International, 4th December 2014

The great painters have always known how to combine the different perspectives of the Nativity into a single picture. Here the RIAS Kammerchor tells the Christmas Story in music: Mendelssohn frames the painting, to which the darkness and the promise of promise of heavenly light form the background. The Virgin Mary leads us to the heart of Christmas Night and to rejoicing at the Saviour’s birth. We come full circle with the Four Motets of Poulenc, which sum up all the facets of Christmas and its emotions.

Founded in 1948 under the auspices of ‘Radio in the American Sector’, the RIAS Kammerchor played an important role in the revival of post-war musical life in Berlin. The core of its repertoire is the music of the Baroque era, together with the modern classics and the music of today. It swiftly acquired an international reputation for premiering new works by such composers as Penderecki, Reimann, Kagel, Gundermann and Tan Dun.

After Uwe Gronostay, Marcus Creed, and Daniel Reuss, Hans-Christoph Rademann has directed the ensemble since 2007, in close collaboration with Concerto Köln, Freiburger Barockorchester, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, with such conductors as Frans Brüggen, Roger Norrington, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, René Jacobs and Philippe Herreweghe.

“The singing, all unaccompanied, has a natural, unforced eloquence, and is of a standard which makes criticism an impertinence. An outstandingly accompanied issue.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013 *****

“The music is extraordinarily wide-ranging and has been exceptionally well chosen and sequenced… the result is an unmitigated joy- the performances are immaculate and most expressive, particularly of Poulenc’s four motets ‘pour le temps de Noel… a performance that could not, in my opinion be improved upon. This is an truly outstanding disc” International Record Review, December 2013

“A Christmas concept album, taking us from darkness to fulfilment and reflection...the voices of the Berlin-based RIAS Kammerchor turn in atmospheric performances.” Sunday Times, 22nd December 2013

Antiphon IV: O Clavis David

Antiphon V: O Oriens

Antiphon VI: O Rex Gentium

Antiphon VII: O Emmanuel

Antiphon VIII: O Virgo virginum


The familiar hymn 'Veni Emmanuel' is emblematic of the Advent season – a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ’s coming. Framing this programme, the hymn paraphrases the great ‘O’ Antiphons: plainchant settings traditionally sung on the days leading up to Christmas; complemented here by later works echoing their rich imagery and symbolism.

Founded in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. Beyond its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College Chapel in Cambridge, the Choir maintains an active schedule recording, broadcasting and performing worldwide.

In addition to live performances the Choir has produced an impressive discography. The Choir’s CD of John Rutter’s 'Requiem', also produced by the composer as is this disc, was awarded Editor’s Choice by Gramophone, amongst other accolades. The Choir’s partnership with harmonia mundi includes recordings of Handel’s 'Messiah', Blow’s 'Venus and Adonis', with René Jacobs, and, most recently, world première recordings of choral works by Imogen Holst, hailed for "impeccable ensemble" and "thrilling performances".

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Tavener’s flair for drama is here; so are the influence of the Russian Orthodox liturgy and his gift for writing melodies and harmonies that are hard to shake off. The rest of the programme is attractive enough, but among the Howells, the Rutter and Rachmaninov, Tavener’s five minutes act like a bolt of lightning...Here is music with the power to transform your life.” The Times, 22nd November 2013 ****

“This is a marvellous programme of Music for Advent and it is executed superbly by the Clare College Choir. It’s obvious that the standard built up during Timothy Brown’s long leadership, especially, has been fully maintained by Graham Ross.” MusicWeb International, November 2013

“it’s an eclectic collection, and on paper it did look as if some of the stylistic juxtapositions might be a little jarring. I stand corrected: woven into a seamless whole with connecting plainchant, the entire sequence seems to develop organically...the Clare choir do pianissimo to perfection, and indeed the singing throughout is superb.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 9th December 2013
