Jean Guyot was another of the composers of the post-Josquin generation active in the Low Countries in the mid-sixteenth century. (He was also a priest, author and teacher, although the details of much of his life remain vague.) Cinquecento has previously explored his secular music (on Amorosi pensieriCDA68053), but it was Guyots sacred music which was largely responsible for the high reputation he seemingly enjoyed in his lifetime. Cinquecento proves equally authoritative in both.

Hervé Niquet – ici sans son ensemble Le Concert spirituel – réserve aux discophiles curieux une nouvelle découverte musicale, en la personne de François d'Agincourt. Mais qui était donc ce Monsieur d'Agincourt, dont on ne retrouve guère de notices biographiques dans la plupart des encyclopédies dédiées à la musique ? Né en 1684, mort en 1758, il fut la gloire artistique de la ville de Rouen où il tint les orgues de la cathédrale rien moins que cinquante ans, fonctions accaparantes qu'il cumula néanmoins avec celles d'organiste de l'abbaye royale de Saint-Ouen, puis de Saint-Jean de Rouen, tout en étant l'un des musiciens officiels du roi. Sur les grandes et belles orgues Tribuot, Hervé Niquet ressuscite un pan inconnu de notre patrimoine artistique, avec ces Dames de Saint-Jean, auxquelles il insuffle une vitalité et une profondeur de bon aloi.

This release is dedicated to some of the most famous settings of the Stabat mater, revealing the genre's varying treatment by composers over the centuries. From Palestrina's effective use of polyphony to Pergolesi's unusually sparse instrumental accompaniment, we move forward in time to contributions by Vivaldi and Haydn. These compositions rank among some of the most famous and affective music ever composed.
Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Ensemble Matheus - Vivaldi: Orlando furioso [2004]

Vivaldi - Orlando furioso (Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, Jennifer Larmore, Philippe Jaroussky) [2004]
Classical | Naïve OP30393 | TT: 182:34 | EAC (flac, cue, log) | Covers | 845 Mb

Diving into Vivaldi's Orlando furioso with Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Matheus Ensemble, and a shockingly good cast is enough to make even the most jaded listener smile. It is fresh, unrelentingly impressive, and entertaining to a fault. The opera is over-plotted: the first paragraph of the synopsis is enough to confuse anyone not taking notes. And listening to the entire thing would amount to more flowery, athletic vocalism than most can stand in one sitting. But those with the remotest interest in Vivaldi opera, or opera at all, will be hard pressed not to marvel at the quality of what's recorded here. Spinosi is a brilliant Vivaldian who pulls sweet-toned lyricism and down-and-dirty sawing from his Matheus Ensemble, making the most of the composer's rich orchestration. And the cast pulls one rabbit after another out of its collective hat, tackling Vivaldi's consummately difficult arias with élan.

Rarely performed but recognized as a hidden masterpiece, Sibelius's score for Jedermann is unusual in that the music closely follows the words and action of this morality play, intensifying Everyman's hubris, penance, escape from the Devil's clutches and ultimate salvation.The Two Serious Melodies reflect Sibelius' dark mood during the difficult years of World War I, while In memoriam resonates with his preoccupation with death in 1909 following a life-saving throat operation, and was performed at his own funeral in 1957. This is the fourth of a six volume set that explores Jean Sibelius's orchestral works beyond the higher profile symphonies, violin concerto and tone poems.Finnish conductor Leif Segerstam is an acclaimed Sibelius interpreter, having been awarded the annual Finnish State Prize for Music in 2004; and in 2005 the highly esteemed Sibelius Medal.

Billie Jean King is the single most important female athlete of the 20th century, winner of 39 Grand Slam titles and a major force in changing and democratizing the cultural landscape. AMERICAN MASTERS looks back to the 12-year-old girl who played tennis on public courts, observed disparity and, as she soared athletically, never stopped trying to remedy inequality. Perhaps best remembered from "The Battle of the Sexes" match vs. Bobby Riggs on Sept. 20, 1973, her competitiveness on the court was matched by her efforts on behalf of women and the LGBT community, and her commitment to prove there is strength in diversity.
