The Children's Choir of the Bolshoi Theatre, Yulia Molchanova

Melodiya presents a programme of Christmas songs performed by the Children’s Choir of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia.

The Children’s Choir of the Bolshoi Theatre was founded about a hundred years ago and has taken part in numerous opera and ballet productions, successfully combining theatre performances with its own concert activities. The unique sound of the voices of the Bolshoi’s young artists has been heard at many venues of Moscow, Russia and other countries – Germany, Italy, Estonia, Japan and South Korea.

The choir has collaborated with well-known Russian orchestras such as the Russian National Orchestra, the Tchaikovsky Big Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra Russian Philharmonia and the Osipov National Academic Orchestra of Folk Instruments. Many of the former artists and soloists of the choir have been prize winners of vocal competitions and sing in the leading opera houses of this country and abroad.

Yulia Molchanova, a graduate of the choral conducting faculty of the Moscow Conservatory where she studied under professor Boris Kulikov, started her career in the Children’s Choir of the Bolshoi Theatre. She has been at the helm of the collective since 2004.

The featured programme comprising Christmas carols from different countries has been performed by the Children’s Choir of the Bolshoi Theatre led by Yulia Molchanova at the venues of Moscow and other Russian cities on a number of occasions. Benjamin Britten’s cycle A Ceremony of Carols for children’s choir and harp is perhaps of greatest interest here. The listeners will also find popular Christmas tunes like Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Stille Nacht, as well as Mozart’s Alleluja and the Italian song Funiculi, funiculà.

“Timeless Christmas music from an enthusiastic and disciplined Russian children’s choir of uncertain vintage” MusicWeb International, 15th November 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

The Vasari Singers’ annual carol concerts always provide a warming blend of traditional favourites and less well-known music from all periods and styles. Here, joyous and masterful 16th-century polyphony sits alongside eternally popular Victorian carols, and exquisitely crafted settings by Howells and Walford Davies join works as recent as Gabriel Jackson’s The Christ-child. Bob Chilcott magically superimposes traditional carols with entrancing new material, and no Vasari Christmas would be complete without some close harmony Swingle singing. The Vasari Singers have also recorded Gabriel Jackson’s Requiem (8573049).

The Vasari Singers’ Great British Anthems [8572102] was described as “essential listening” by Gramophone. The mixture of moving beauty and entertaining good humour in this programme makes it a disc which is sure to appeal to a very wide audience this and every festive season.

Founded in 1980, Vasari Singers is among the leading chamber choirs in Britain, performing music ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. The choir performs regularly in London as well as visiting many of England’s cathedrals to sing services, with recent trips to Canterbury, Salisbury, Bath and Ripon. The choir and Jeremy Backhouse are deeply committed to contemporary music and have commissioned over twenty works since 2000, including works by Francis Pott and Gabriel Jackson.

“Rathbone's energetically bouncing arrangement of Gabriel's Message is a good place to sample the Vasari Singers' warmly engaged performances” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012 ***

“I found [the Gibbs] utterly beguiling and count it as a real discovery...The Vasari Singers always close their Christmas concerts with some seasonal sweetmeats, as they do here...the standard of singing throughout the programme is very high indeed – as we’ve come to expect from this fine ensemble.” MusicWeb International, November 2012

Saint Michael’s Singers, Paul Leddington Wright

Sir David Willcocks, who died in September 2015 at the age of 95, is probably best known as Director of Music at King’s College Cambridge from 1957 to 1974; he was subsequently Director of the Royal College of Music, and was conductor for many years of The Bach Choir. Since the 1960s his iconic arrangements of favourite Christmas carols have become an essential part of the festive season, through the annual broadcast of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s, through recordings, and through the books of Carols for Choirs which he edited and to which he contributed many carol arrangements - now known and loved by choirs around the world. In this memorial tribute to an inspirational and well-loved musician, Saint Michael’s Singers of Coventry Cathedral perform a selection of the best of David Willcocks’ carol arrangements together with some new compositions and arrangements from Carols for Choirs 5. Saint Michael’s Singers, an auditioned choir of some 90 voices, was formed in 1963 shortly after the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral, and performs in concerts in Coventry and around the Midlands, as well as broadcasts and recordings.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas


Ensemble Octavians

The Ensemble Octavians – all former singers with the boys’ choir of the Jena Philharmonie – have recorded a musical Christmas gift with their current CD ‘A Light is Coming’ that offers well-known and unknown songs from the festival of festivals.

The young singers noticed in their concerts that there is a special synergy that emerges between themselves and their audience, particularly during these selected arrangements – they subsequently put together a personal programme in the form of this CD repertoire. It combines into a poignant whole the mysticism of the pending birth of Jesus with the wonder at the child in the manger, and finally, the exuberant joy in connection with this ‘birthday party’.

From moving verses highlighting the Christmas festival, to bible texts set to music, to rather secular contemplations – the entire spectrum of Christmas vocal music is represented here. The fact that the pieces are arranged for up to eight-voice men’s choir allows us to enjoy old favourites such as ‘Maria durch ein Dornwald ging’ or ‘Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht’ in a completely new way.

Atmospheric tones sound in the adaptation of the Praetorius arrangement of ‘Es ist ein Ros entsprungen’ by Jan Sandström or the motet ‘Tu solus qui facis mirabilia’ by Josquin Desprez and festive chords with Andreas Hammerschmidt’s famous ‘Machet die Tore weit’.

Adaptations by and for the legendary King’s Singers round out the Octavians’ repertoire both atmospherically and joyously, and focus the listener’s attention away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas to the child in the manger.
