The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge is a mixed choir whose primary function is to sing choral services in the Tudor chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge. The choir has taken various forms since its foundation, and has existed in its present form since 1982 when, shortly after the admission of girls to the University of Cambridge, female voices were used for the first time for the choir’s top lines. Trinity College's choral associations date back to the establishment of King's Hall by Edward II in 1317.

Hermann Max and his Rheinische Kantorei present an entirely new facet in the oeuvre of the opera composer Giacomo Meyerbeer on this recording premiere of his sacred chroal works. In the booklet, Max himself writes, ""The protagonists of the Enlightenment influenced Giacomo's social network in letters and conversations during his early years. It was only logical that religious texts were viewed more in literary terms than as faith documents to be taken seriously. The stories from the Bible contradicting the laws of nature were taken more nonchalantly than with absolute seriousness and naive faith. Jesus often was mentioned no longer as the Son of God but as the most important human being ever born.

Label: Genuin | Tracks: 20 | Rls.date: 2017

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!

SOMM’s celebration of John Joubert’s 90th birthday this month brings to the catalogue yet more new riches, this time no less than seven première recordings of his choral music. South of the Line (together with Autumn Rain) was recorded last June at the Birmingham Conservatoire and poignant is the fact that it was commissioned from the composer for the opening of the Adrian Boult Hall and the last music heard there for this recording, before its demolition.

Stile Antico's 2015 release on Harmonia Mundi, A Wondrous Mystery, is a sublime collection of Renaissance choral music for Christmas, presented in a pleasant mix of familiar German carols and a mass, with tracks interspersed for the sake of variety. This makes sense in consideration of the group's broad audience, which may know such popular hymns as Michael Praetorius' Ein Kind geborn in Bethlehem and Es ist ein Ros entsprungen, or Johannes Eccard's Übers Gebirg Maria geht and Vom Himmel hoch, yet be somewhat at a loss with the motet and Missa Pastores quidnam vidistis by Jacobus Clemens non Papa, a composer beloved by early music specialists but not exactly a household name for lay listeners. However, the a cappella performances are consistently beautiful and soothing throughout, and the quietly joyous mood of the music fits the album's title perfectly. The 12-voice choir's blend is well-balanced and transparent, and the ambience of All Hallow's Church, Gospel Oak, London gives an ideal resonance for the group's small size and close miking.

This recording has a huge advantage over most of its rivals for the attention of Tallis listeners: the wonderful acoustics of Winchester Cathedral. In this magnificent space, the soaring lines and resplendent harmonies of Tallis's greatest masterpieces find sympathetic resonance, resulting in a heightened dramatic presence that takes the music beyond earthly confines. Of course, beyond the exceptional quality of the writing, credit must go to the phenomenal men and boys of Winchester Cathedral Choir. Where, even in England, does one find trebles who sing with more assuredness, musicality, and beauty of tone? With a repertoire including "In ieiunio et fletu," "Salvator mundi," "In manus tuas," "The Lamentations of Jeremiah," "O nata lux," and the unbelievable 40-part motet "Spem in alium," this is the Tallis disc to own if you're buying only one.

Label: CORO | Tracks: 20 | Rls.date: 2017

Francis Poulenc is considered one of the greatest melodists of the 20th century but it is his individual and immediately recognisable harmonic language that makes his music so distinctive. Often overlooked in his lifetime and in the years after his death, his sacred music was an expression of his more serious side and, following the death of his close friend, Pierre-Octave Ferroud, a re-awakening of his religious faith. The Sixteens new recording centres round the themes of conflict and atonement, reflecting both Poulencs intense internal struggles and the turbulence of life in France during the mid-20th century.

Cinq musiciens se réunissent autour de l'ancien chanteur de Magma. Leur seul désir : Jouer la jubilation, sans entrave, sans plan de carrière, avec comme idée fixe la complicité entre "note bleue" et "groove". Le groupe "Maison Klaus" a été créé en septembre 1996 par le chanteur Klaus Blasquiz (Magma, Odeurs, Paga…) et le bassiste Laurent Cokelaere (Coketale, Verbeke, Milteau…).
