Ascending Into Heaven


Peter Harrison, Matthew Jorysz (organ)

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

The Feast of the Ascension, celebrated on the 40th day of Easter, is one of the chief feasts of the Christian year, in which the resurrected Jesus was taken up to Heaven in the presence of 11 of his disciples. The Feast of Pentecost, which falls 10 days after Ascension – seven Sundays (50 days, hence the name) after Easter Sunday – commemorates in the Christian church the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. Both feasts are rich in imagery and in musical material. Many of the Ascensiontide works in this programme set all or parts of psalm 47, whose fifth verse begins ‘God is gone up with a merry noise’. 'Ascendit Deus' is a 5-part setting of that verse in Latin by the English Renaissance composer Peter Philips, which leads to a triple-time ‘Alleluia’. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s 'O clap your hands', dating from 1920, sets the opening verses of the psalm, performed here in the composer’s expanded version for choir, organ, brass and percussion. Patrick Gowers, an alumnus of Clare College, is known mainly for his film and television scores, but his double- choir setting of 'Viri Galilaei' is much performed and was written for the ordination of the Bishop of Oxford at St. Paul’s Cathedral in 1987. Graham Ross’s expanded arrangement for choir, organ, brass and percussion receives its world première recording here, alongside four new works, commissioned by Graham Ross and the Choir of Clare College in 2014, also receiving their world première recordings.

“the famous setting of Ascendit Deus by Peter Philips spurts forward like a colt sprung freshly from a stable, the vocal decorations spinning vertiginously round like Monteverdi. It's a bracing opening salvo...Amid the muscular Christianity there are welcome oases of reflection. Conductor Graham Ross's Ascendo ad Patrem meum is one of them.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2015 ****

“Peter Philips's Ascendit Deus is splendidly bright and vigorous...Nico Muhly's Let all the world, quite unlike the RVW setting, is gentle, almost contemplative; Giles Swayne's God is gone up offers another surprise with its quiet ending. These and the well-known Elgar and Finzi pieces are all beautifully performed by this accomplished choir. Let's hope an Easter disc is on its way.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2015

“This is another very fine and varied album from Clare College. The singing is consistently superb in every respect throughout a demanding programme.” MusicWeb International, 3rd April 2015

“This is a very fine choral disc that will bring enjoyment not just at Ascensiontide and Pentecost but throughout the year. The recordings from three different venues all add a spaciousness and breadth with producer and engineer, John Rutter, knowing just what to achieve with a choral sound. There is a beautifully produced booklet that includes colour photographs of various pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows.” The Classical Reviewer, April 2015

Hyperion is delighted to present this latest CD from The Choir of Westminster Abbey under their inspirational director, James O’Donnell. They continue their exploration of the rich repertoire of the liturgy in its historical context in the Abbey with music for the Feast of the Ascension. Ascension Day is a particular moment of celebration within the annual round of Easter praise and is celebrated in glorious and triumphal language. The works recorded here represent a wide range of the best of liturgical music, starting from the intricate and joyful writing of the sixteenth-century composer Peter Philips and ending with fascinating and appealing pieces by living composers. Along the way are works from the great flowering of English cathedral music in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

“The boys might be singing Stanford's Caelos ascendit hodie, but they could just as easily be trilling ''Woohoo! It's Ascension Day!'' I love such musical joie de vivre, and not every choir is able to produce it convincingly as these chaps...this is Westminster Abbey Choir at their crystalline best, with spot-on pitching, enviable articulation and sympathetic phrasing.” Charlotte Gardner, bbc.co.uk, 18th April 2008

“The choir of Westminster Abbey under James O'Donnell sing with the happy care which his choristers at the Cathedral used to bring to their work with him. If the echo calls attention to itself at the start, the ears soon adjust. They are not going to complain with so much to enjoy.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2008

“After seven years at the helm, James O'Donnell has made a formidable singing outfit of the Westminster Abbey Choir...The treble line is robust and thrilling, its soloist, Jacob Ewens, a sinuous star in Britten's Te Deum in E. The ensemble is well balanced in the polyphony of Philips's Ascendit Deus and confidently tuned in the awe-filled modernism of Gowers's Viri Galilei, while the organist, Robert Quinney, does more than his share in the dazzling accompaniments.” The Times, 26th April 2008 ****

The first in a new series from Regent charting a musical journey through the church’s year at well-loved cathedrals.

This journey in music through a year at York Minster features a number of works written for the Choir of York Minster.

Several First recordings.

Featuring either the boy or the girl choristers, together with the Songmen.

Includes Charles Stanford’s Magnficat in G sung by Isabel Suckling (The Choirgirl).

“the men have a rich tone, almost operatic at times. This can occasionally overshadow York's chorister, whose sound has an attractive fragility....An auspicious start to what should prove a major collection of choral recording.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

“York offers a particularly rich crop of new and relatively recent music...Naylor's Vox dicentis...[is] given with confidence, firm tuning, clear diction and phrasing and even a little drama, the excellent of the performances masking just how difficult it can be to make this sort of music work well.” International Record Review, March 2012
