Parallel to the forthcoming John Eliot Gardiner Collection, here’s a famous compilation of Great Bach Choruses, newly re-presented just in time for Easter 2013.

It comes with a fresh cover, liner notes and texts and translations.

The acclaimed Monteverdi Choir sings a selection of celebrated Bach choruses under their director John Eliot Gardiner, one of the most versatile and exciting conductors of our time. For Gardiner, “Bach is probably the only composer whose music is so rich, so challenging to the performer and so spiritually uplifting to performer and listener alike.”

Selections from the Passions, the Mass in B minor, Christmas Oratorio and several cantatas.

Akadêmia, Françoise Lasserre

Françoise Lasserre founded Akadêmia in 1986 after a major musical experience with Philippe Herreweghe. Her journey started with Bach family, Palestrina, Schütz, and at Zig-Zag Territoires Monteverdi (Selva Morale e spirituale et Il combattimento) et récemment Stefano Landi (La Morte d’Orfeo). Two decades later, she returns to Johann Sebastian Bach with the Cantatas.

For this disc, I looked for other affinities which were guided neither by liturgical connections nor by the choice of identical instrumentation in all the cantatas or the use of rare instruments. I took as my starting point the Cantata BWV 12, which I am very fond of, and so the theme of the chaconne emerged quite naturally. It so happens that Bach wrote several cantatas based on ostinatos. I therefore selected three cantatas which make particularly elaborate and remarkable use of this form.

This album fuels a special aura, of piety, purity with a clever choice of soloists V. Winter, D.Guillon, M. Beekman, B. Arnould.

Cambridge Singers & La Nuova Musica, John Rutter

Easter 2009 sees the release of a major new disc on Collegium from John Rutter, the Cambridge Singers and La Nuova Musica, featuring a collection of outstanding motets from the canon of European sacred choral repertoire.

Focusing on the extraordinary body of choral music produced for liturgical use during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, The Sacred Flame explores the rich and varied ways in which European composers responded to sacred texts. Delving into a treasure-trove of music from cultural centres as diverse as Amsterdam, Antwerp, Leipzig, Milan, Rome, and Venice, this collection features familiar classics by Gabrieli,Monteverdi, Palestrina and Schütz, as well as less widely-known masterpieces by Bach, Buxtehude, Hassler and Sweelinck. All are performed in stunning new recordings by the Cambridge Singers at their sensuous and virtuosic best, joined here for the first time on disc by the instrumentalists of La Nuova Musica, rapidly establishing areputation as one of the UK’s most exciting early music ensembles.

All repertoire featured on The Sacred Flame is drawn from the enormously popular European Sacred Music collection edited by John Rutter for the Oxford University Press Oxford Choral Classics series. Recorded in the unparalleled acoustic of the Great Hall at University College School in London, and produced and engineered by award winning producer Simon Eadon, the performances of these much loved works heard on this disc are set to become definitive.

“These singers of John Rutter's choir are so expert, so very good at everything they do… They shade and shape the phrases beautifully” Gramophone

“…these are dedicated performances. They sometimes sound as if they could date from the 1950s or '60s, but many listeners will surely welcome that mellower, less athletic approach.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2009 ****

“The wonderfully sleek Cambridge Singers, under their founder John Rutter, make light work of this choral polyphony from continental Europe that sprang from the Catholic and Protestant Reformation, an era that saw the beguiling tunefulness of street music and opera permeate works written for the liturgy.” The Observer, 26th April 2009

“John Rutter's pristine arrangements are realised to sublime effect by The Cambridge Singers. The occasional early-music settings of La Nuova Musica offer intriguing insights into the authentic period sound of stile nuovo pieces such as Monteverdi's "Beatus vir" and Buxtehude's "Magnificat".” The Independent, 10th April 2009 ****

“A pleasing anthology that delivers what it promises. …the Cambridge Singers… don’t disappoint… The instrumentalists from La Nuova Musica are sensible and sensitive accompanists…” Gramophone Magazine, October 2009

“Patches of engaging music-making here, though giving more insight into 1960s Hamburg than 1720s Leipzig. Choruses are often woolly, soloists vary from off-the-voice big voices to insecure, boyish sounds.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2009 ***

Within Bach´s oeuvre, the motets form a group that stands out for a number of reasons. When compared with the cantatas, they are few in number and cast in a singularly old-fashioned form, especially the motets for double chorus. The motets, however, made their breakthrough into the concert repertoire at an early date: they were Bach´s first works to be printed after his death, and, as early as 1794, the motet "Singet dem Herrn" was introduced into the repertoire of the newly founded Berlin "Singakademie" as its first Bach work. The motets thus founded access to the burgeoning middle-class concert life before the Passions and cantatas, "behind the backs" of the Bach cult´s high priests in Leipzig.
