Various Arrangers : Early Music for Men's Voices

This is a fine collection of unaccompanied music from some of the master's of the golden age of polyphony. Missa Ave Regina Coelorum (c.1464) is Dufay's crowning achievement and we know that Dufay requested that this Angus Dei be sung on his deathbed. Crucifixus was originally intended for solo voices, but is transcribed here for four-part male chorus. It may be sung effectively by solo voices, chamber choir, or full chorus. Everybody's repertoire should include some examples of this early music style and are both fun and interesting to perform. This music has been sung for 500 plus years and still continues to please!

Songlist: Du Tout Plongiet , Sanctus from the Mass for Four Voices, O How Amiable Are Thy Dwellings, O Sacrum Convivium, Angus Dei from 'Missa Ave Regina Coelorum', Crucifixus

The well-known psalms selected for these recording constitute a cross-section of the Psalter. Some are in praise of Jerusalem, both for its beauty and as the dwelling-place of Jehovah; some are the passionate cry of an exile; some are quiet songs of trust; some are triumphant hymns of praise.

Oxford Camerata : Weelkes: Anthems

If Weelkes stands slightly apart from his contemporaries then it is because he was perhaps the nearest the English got to a 'dare-devil'. The traits of the boldest compositions of his 1600 madrigal collection dig surprisingly deeply into the baroque psyche without ever drawing on specific 'baroque' practices: impetuosity, restlessness, a love of bold and startling symbolism, concentrated gestures, and an ambition for large structural coherence - all characteristics which would have found a natural home fifty years later. But when the madrigal soon, and ironically for Weelkes, became an anachronism he willingly turned his attention to the church, committed as he was to the bastion of counterpoint. However tempting it is to think of an innovator stifled by the conservatism of his age, the relatively experimental devices in the madrigals are surprisingly unintegral to Weelkes's musical style. He was never particularly responsive to words; as Hosanna to the son of David and Alleluia! I heard a voice display, his music is essentially driven by sonorous textures and an engagingly direct desire to set a text with the minimum of fuss.

Songlist: Hosanna to the son of David, Give ear, O Lord, All people clap your hands, What joy so true, O Lord, grant the king a long life, Lord, to thee I make my moan, All laud and praise, Lachrimae Pavan , A remembrance of my friend Thomas Morley, Passymeasures Pavan , Gloria in excelsis Deo, When David heard, Give the king thy judgements, O Lord, arise, O how amiable are thy dwellings, Most mighty and all-knowing Lord, Alleluia, I heard a voice
