I heard a voice from heaven

Les Trompettes des Plaisirs, Lingua Franca & Vox Luminis, Lionel Meunier

Much anticipated new release from the Gramophone Record of the Year winning Vox Luminis!

We know now that Purcell’s three Funeral Sentences were not written for the funeral of Queen Mary in 1695. Following the tradition of the English court, it was pieces by Thomas Morley, originally written for the funeral of Elizabeth I, that were sung there. Purcell’s only contribution to the ceremony was the composition of two pieces for slide trumpets (March and Canzona), and the anthem in the archaic style Thou knowest, Lord. During the funeral procession to Westminster Abbey, a band of oboes played two marches written by John Paisible and Thomas Tollet.

This recording assembles the music composed for the funeral of Queen Mary and that used at the funeral of Elizabeth I in 1603. The programme is completed by Purcell’s sublime a cappella anthems and a moving anthem by Weelkes on the death of Thomas Morley.

After the success of the recording of Schütz’s Musicalische Exequien (RIC311), voted Record of the Year by Gramophone magazine, this disc will be one of the major events of spring 2013.

“one might call it a classically 'English' choral sound - but any suspicions of coolness are easily dispelled by the commitment shown to the meaning of both music and text...Once again, Vox Luminis have touched the heart with their calm interpretative intelligence and vocal beauty.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2013

When shall my sorrowful sighing slake

Mars in a fury

The Queen's Six

Following the critical acclaim of their debut album ‘Music of the Realm’, The Queen’s Six return to Resonus with a programme of secular madrigals from the same six English Renaissance composers all associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group take their name.

Entitled ‘Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court’, The Queen’s Six present a recital of well- and lesser-known works by Morley, Weelkes, Tomkins, Byrd, Tallis and Gibbons, with various themes of ‘Royalty’, ‘Planets’, ‘Ballets’, ‘Birds and Flowers’, ‘Dedications’ and ‘Love and Death’.
