People of Celtic culture all over ancient Europe were fascinated by lip reed instruments, and made great horns and trumpets in many forms including the carnyx, a two-metre-long bronze trumpet surmounted by a stylised animal head. One of these was found at Deskford, Scotland, in 1816 and reconstructed in the early 1990s; it is joined here by the magnificent Tintignac carnyx, discovered in southern France in 2004 and reconstructed specially for the current project. A new reconstruction has also been made of the Loughnashade horn from Ireland, with its exquisite decorated bell disc. Recent developments in music archaeology have vastly increased our knowledge and understanding of both the physical construction of these instruments and their likely playing techniques. John Kenny has specialised in their performance for a quarter of a century, and his newly created music explores the voices of these instruments in solo, duo and ensemble textures, drawing upon Celtic mythical characters, echoes of ancient ritual in modern society, and impressions of real places in Ireland, Scotland and France.

The Dover Quartet made news when it won all three special prizes as well as the top prize at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition. Soon after, the quartet was being reviewed and interviewed by mainstream media such as the Wall Street Journal and NPR in addition to music-centric publications like Musical America and The Strad magazines. It is very consistently complimented for its homogeneous sound and insightful interpretations. Its members - Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violins; Melina Pajaro-van de Stadt, viola; Camden Shaw, cello - approach music with an eye for details, whether it's how the instruments' sounds blend or how to shape a particular phrase. The quartet was formed in 2008 at the Curtis Institute where its members were students. It has been mentored by several leading quartet musicians, including Shmuel Ashkenasi, Peter Wiley, Arnold Steinhardt, and Michael Tree. It has performed in recital and at festivals across North America and in Europe, and is active in community outreach projects.

It is finally here part three of the complete recordings of Schubert's works for male chorus, a project that the fabulous Camerata Musica Limburg has embarked upon on the Genuin Classics label. Once again, high-profile soloists such as Alison Browner and Christoph Prégardien are rushing in to support the men singing under the direction of Jan Schumacher. There is certainly no better way to weep than with the fantastic music of Schubert in the outstanding performance of this perfectly tuned ensemble. With Schubert, the distance between the lightest pieces doccasion to works of deadly seriousness is not far. An outstanding CD an outstanding series!

Emilio De' Cavalieri (1550-1602) - La Rappresentatione Di Anima Et Di Corpo

Hatte die Sammlung für 4,99 bei Zweitausendeins gesehen und aus Interesse mitgenommen. Nachdem ich schon mal eine tschechische Don Giovanni -Aufführung mit grausamer Bildqualität erworben hatte, war ich auf das Schlimmste vorbereitet. Wurde aber mehr als positiv überrascht, die Bildqualität ist einwandfrei, der Sound ist gut und auch die Qualität der Aufführungen an sich stimmt. Wirklich empfehlenswert! Und was für mich auch wichtig ist, es sind keine modernen Inzenierungen mit weißem Laken oder leerer Bühne mit Drehrad etc., sondern noch Aufführungen in klassischer Umgebung. Insbesondere die TOSCA-Inzenierung mit Francesca Patané ist eigentlich schon mehr wert, als die gnaze Packung kostet.

To many enthusiasts, the loss of Jim Morrison (vocals/lyrics) likewise meant the passing of the Doors. Certainly the band's focal point changed on the two long-players that the trio of John Densmore (drums/vocals), Ray Manzarek (keyboards/bass pedals/vocals), and Robbie Krieger (guitar/vocals) issued in the immediate post-Morrison era…
Classical Christianity and the Political Order: Reflections on the Theologico-Political Problem

Classical Christianity and the Political Order: Reflections on the Theologico-Political Problem by Ernest L. Fortin

In Volume Two of Ernest Fortin: Collected Essays, Fortin deals with the relationship between religion and civil society in a Christian context: that of an essentially nonpolitical but by no means entirely otherwordly religion, many of whose teachings were thought to be fundamentally at odds with the duties of citizenship.
