Fretwork, His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, Magdalena Consort, Peter Harvey

Leading performers of 17th-century music Fretwork, His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts and the Magdalena Consort (directed by Peter Harvey) combine forces under the artistic direction of William Hunt for this first complete recording of the consort anthems of Orlando Gibbons. Gibbons’ music is one of the artistic glories of the first Stuart reign. Amongst his sacred compositions, verse anthems such as This is the record of John and Behold, thou hast made my days are long acknowledged masterpieces, amongst the greatest in all English sacred music, but best known to most in their setting for choir and organ. Here they are presented together with an array of other great anthems, some of them scarcely known, in their more intricate and colourful versions for consort accompaniment.Following the instruction of such contemporary writers as Morley and Caccini, these radical new performances place communication of text at the forefront, seeking to rediscover the dramatic essence of the verse anthem that made it arguably the most effective musical creation of the English Reformation. With the incisive declamatory skill of several of the UK’s leading period performers, they reveal the extraordinary rhetorical and poetic power of this music, as it might have been heard in the Chapel Royal and the private domestic chapels of early 17th century England

The Choir of York Minster, Robert Sharpe

The first disc of Tudor and Jacobean choral music from the Choir of York Minster and Robert Sharpe.

This wide-ranging survey traces the ‘threads of gold’ weaving through the development of sacred choral works from immediately before the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1558 to 1603) to the early Jacobean period following – a period considered a Golden Age in English music.

With sacred works from the major composers of the second half of the 16th century, and the early years of the 17th – Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, William Mundy, and Orlando Gibbons – there are examples of Latin polyphonic Motets, concise a capella anthems in both Latin and English, and more elaborate verse anthems with extensive solos and organ accompaniment.

“This is a radiant recording of glorious music, sung by a fine provincial English cathedral choir right at the top of its game.” Early Music Review, 27th May 2017

“ the Choir of York Minster explores the Tudor golden age of sacred music with deep affection and intensity.” Choir & Organ, May 2017

Yale Schola Cantorum, Simon Carrington

“Simon Carrington draws lovely, beautifully balanced and technically assured singing from his accomplished musicians.” –American Record Guide

Such critical praise and more were lavished upon Anniversaries and Messages (DE3436), the first Delos album by English “Choral magician” Simon Carrington and the Yale Schola Cantorum that he founded in 2003.

Now a Yale Professor Emeritus, Carrington has continued to work with the choir as a guest conductor. This and his previous Delos album – both recorded in concert – are the luscious fruits of his continuing association with the choir that he developed into one of America’s premier academic chamber choirs.

The program features mesmerizing sacred music spanning the entire English Renaissance by John Taverner, Thomas Tallis and Orlando Gibbons. The album’s centerpiece is The Glory and the Dream: a substantial and moving choral cycle setting Wordsworth’s poetry by the late, lamented Sir Richard Rodney Bennett – to whose memory the album is dedicated. Organist Thomas Murray’s contributions help to make for an unforgettable performance.
