GRAMOPHONE AWARD 2015 WINNER (RECITAL CATEGORY). A welcome return of Carolyn Sampson and Ex Cathedra to Hyperion, performing the rich, fulsome music of the French Baroque. Their recording of love songs from Rameau’s operas (Hyperion CDA67447) was hugely acclaimed for Sampson’s stylish, fluid, seductive performances, and ten years later her artistry is even more dazzling. This album is of particular interest as rather than concentrating on one composer it showcases the works written for the premiere soprano of the day, Marie Fel. Voltaire called her his ‘adorable nightingale’. For d’Aquin, she was an enchanted being. Marie Fel was the soprano who held an entire generation spellbound at the Paris Opéra and at Louis XV’s court during one of the most glorious periods of French music. With a voice described as ‘pure, charming, silvery’ (La Borde), ‘touching and sublime’ (Grimm) and ‘always lovely, always seductive’ (d’Aquin), she inspired some of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s finest music and introduced a whole new level of virtuosity and expression into the French singing tradition. Her long, triumphant career is traced through this fascinating recording.

Ave Sol is acknowledged as one of the most versatile and innovative choirs in the world. For over 45 years this ensemble has championed contemporary composers and performed the great choral repertoire to huge acclaim. The members come from all walks of life and are united by their intense love of music and the sheer joy of singing together. This unique album features many of the greatest opera arias and duets, but these immortal melodies have been given a unique twist in stunning new choral arrangements. For the first time these world famous pieces are performed not by great sopranos and tenors of our day, but by the dedicated members of the chorus; performers who ordinarily would never get to display their special affinity with this music.
