Image Messiah

BETYG: *****


"Superba gossröster snitslar sig genom sopranariorna såväl som genom körstämmorna - matchade av Toby Spence genomlysta countertenor i altariorna, vår tids svar på stjärnkastraten Guadagnini. Spritsigt elastiska tempi, studsande jubelkörer kontras av recitativ mättade med spänningsrik eftertanke. Exotiskt också att höra en tenor i Rejoice greatly."
"...Higginbottoms lättfotade Messias gör helt enkelt lyssnaren helfrälst..."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

"En strålande inspelning med fina solister"

Image Ex Maria Virgine
Admired for the sheer beauty of his meditative and mystical music, John Tavener writes of his Ex Maria Virgine, which was dedicated to HRH the Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall in joyful celebration of their marriage: "I have set both familiar and less well known texts, and linked them with an expanding and contracting phrase 'Ex Maria Virgine'. This refers to Mary the Mother of God-'The Eternal Feminine'-and should be sung with great radiance and femininity." The other, mainly unaccompanied, works reveal Tavener's response to various poetic texts that also praise the Virgin Mary.

Image Medieval Carols
"I...strongly recommend Naxos's 1993 recording of a cappella Medieval Carols from the Oxford Camerata, mainly here a vocal quartet directed by Jeremy Summerly, who is also one of the soloists. Great late-night listening."

Image A Carol Symphony


'The City of Prague Philharmonic proves a first-rate interpreter of these scores, conveying all the music's exuberance and spirit with flawless technical prowess and Technicolor-grade contributions from the winds and brass. Conductor Gavin Sutherland deserves credit for inspired leadership in these all-too-rarely performed works--any one of which would make a guaranteed audience-pleasing addition to a holiday concert. Having these together on one budget-priced CD is truly a gift worthy of the season it celebrates. And Naxos complements the whole production with top-grade sound. Adeste fidelis!'

Image Rose In The Middle of Winter - Christmas Carols
Commotio • Matthew Berry

Bob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as 'a contemporary hero of British Choral Music', and his music is commissioned and sung by choirs throughout the world. His Christmas pieces, a number of which are heard here in première recordings, reveal his enthusiasm for recently written texts, to which he responds with acute verbal sensitivity. Commotio is one of the UK's foremost chamber choirs, hailing from Oxford, where they have performed choral music of the 20th and 21st centuries since 1999.

Image Hodie: Fantasia on Christmas Carols

• Vaughan Williams’s Christmas Cantata Hodie (This Day) is a brilliant mosaic of musical styles set to poetry from the most diverse sources.

• Texts by Milton, Hardy, and George Herbert reflecting various Christmas experiences are bound together by a narration of the Gospel Nativity story sung in unison by a boys’ choir.

• With its gripping blend of mysticism, heavenly glory and human hope, Hodie flows with a vitality and inventiveness that belie a work written in Vaughan Williams’s old age.

• The Fantasia on Christmas Carols, which incorporates a number of traditional English carols, is notable for the obbligato cello part and for the varied treatment of the choir, which provide an atmospheric choral-orchestral texture.

“This is a work that should be done far more often… The clamour of bells, large and small, and of celebration prepare any audience to go out glowing into the snowy night and home.”

Image Manchester Carols (The)
This new sequence of Christmas carols was written in 2007 by the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy and composer Sasha Johnson Manning, and premièred in the same year. The Manchester Carols re-tell the Christmas Story for the 21st Century, celebrating a child's birth and all that child was to become: a man who lived by a humble, selfless creed, championing the marginalised in a society which was, as it is now, fraught with political tensions. These carols are for everybody, the believer and the non-believer, people of other faiths and everyone wishing to join in the Christmas celebrations.

Image Lullabies and Carols for Christmas
Monica Whicher, soprano
Judy Loman, harp

The richly fascinating history of the Christmas carol spans some nine centuries, from the 12th Century until today, bringing together courtly and popular words and music to contemplate and praise the Christ child.

Acclaimed by The Guardian as 'poignantly expressive', soprano Monica Whicher joins one of the world's foremost harp virtuosos and former Principal Harpist with the Toronto Symphony, Judy Loman.

Together they interpret carols both old and new, beloved and unfamiliar, many in Ms. Loman's expert arrangements.

Vasari Singers / Jeremy Backhouse

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 (8.573049).

Zürich's bustling holiday shoppers, twinkling lights reflected in magical window displays; the famed Toy Museum in Nuremberg; a bountiful Christmas feast; an elaborate Nativity scene; the snow covered landscaped of Switzerland. These are the joyously evocative images of the Christmas season and inspiration for some of the most beloved Christmas carols of all time.

The volume of the Naxos Musical Journey takes you on a magical European holiday tour swept up by the sounds of such holiday favorites as "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night," "The First Noel," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "O Tannenbaum" and many more. These eternal favourites are performed in the baroque style of Bach, Handel and Vivaldi - the sound of music as timeless as Christmas itself.

Image 20 Polish Christmas Carols



"...Det antas att Franciskanermunkar introducerade de första julsångerna i Polen på 1200-talet. Under 1800-talet samlades texter och melodier in av Fader Michal Mioduszewski och Oskar Kolberg, och från dessa sex samlingar (Kraków 1838-89) valde Witold Lutoslawski 20 sånger som han 1946 satte för sopran och piano. Knappt 40 år senare bearbetade han 17 av dem för sopran, damkör och kammarorkester, de resterande tre var klara i sin nya gestaltning 1990, då alla 20 framfördes i Edinburgh. Melodierna är vackra och ovanliga, arrangemangen klangligt, rytmiskt och harmoniskt raffinerade utan att fördärva enkelheten. Den upphöjda atmosfären kring krubban, den folkliga glädjen och de meditativa stämningarna uttrycks charmerande i betagande tolkningar av sopranen Olga Pasichnyk, Polska radiokören Kraków och Polska nationella symfoniorkestern (Katowice) under Anoni Wit. Julsångerna kompletteras av ett Lacrimosa, en mjuk bön för sopran, blandad kör och orkester från 1937 och av Fem sånger för damröst och 30 soloinstrument (1957/58) med alten Jadviga Rappé som solist. I de senare har Lutoslawski tonsatt texter av den litauenfödda poeten Kazimiera Illakowicz (1892-1983) i ett mer avancerat musikaliskt idiom..."

Sleep, Holy Babe is a collection of Christmas lullabies which reflect the old traditions and restful, contemplative nature of the nativity story. Some works date back as far as the sixteenth century, such as Richard Pygott's Quid petis, O Fili? from a collection owned by Henry VIII. Others are freshly composed, and many, such as Gerald Finzi's A Lullaby, are recorded here for the first time.

The Christmas net is cast wide in this captivating collection of seasonal music. John Fox has crafted a delightful Carol Fantasia. Bryan Kelly's Scrooge is an action-packed Dickens compression, brought to visceral life by esteemed actor Simon Callow, who also narrates Philip Lane's Another Night Before Christmas, an update by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy of the classic poem. Lane's Old Christmas Music is expressively rich, and spans the centuries. Smaller pieces from Liszt, orchestrated by Gordon Jacob, Rebikov and more recent works, complete a delightful selection.

Image Christmas with Septura
Brass instruments are almost a Christmas cliché: synonymous with the celebration, but perhaps not with the wealth of great music that it has inspired. Septura sets out to rectify this, re-imagining for brass septet the Christmas offerings of the greatest composers of the past 450 years. Pushing the combinations and colours of the septet to the limits, the result is a virtuosic and varied selection of festive favourites.
