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.

Label: Fra Bernardo | Tracks: 16 | Rls.date: 2017

The Domkantorei St. Pölten, under the direction of Otto Kargl, is one of the most profound amateur choirs in Austria. The group was founded in 1992 by Kappelmeister Otto Kargle. It is an exquisite special ensemble with only about 20 members and the group is mainly concerned with music written prior to the year 1800 as well as contemporary choral literature. In addition to the liturgical service at the cathedral church in St. Polten, the ensemble regularly performs at the Carinthian Summer, the Brucknerhaus Linz, the Musica Sacra Festival, and the Festspielhaus St. Polten.

Born into a working-class family, George Dyson became one of the most important musicians and composers of his day. The previously unknown Choral Symphony was written as an examination work while Dyson was studying at Oxford, and it was only recently discovered at the Bodleian Library. Dyson relishes his dramatic chosen text from Psalm 107 on the expulsion from and homecoming of the Jews to Israel, a narrative that inspires trademark features that would make his later works so attractive. Its seascape finale links neatly with St Pauls Voyage to Melita, another vivid text from which Technicolor musical images are conjured.

EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue, log) ~ 138.20 Mb | 33:12 | Scans included
Cool, Guitar Jazz | Country: USA | Label: Riverside Records - RLP-208

This is very much a chamber jazz set. Mundell Lowe plays "Our Waltz" as an unaccompanied guitar solo and his trio with bassist Trigger Alpert and drummer Ed Shaughnessy is joined by either Al Klink or Phil Bodner on various woodwinds during seven of the 11 other selections. The bass clarinet, flute, oboe, and English horn are quite atmospheric, adding to the beauty of the ballads. The brevity of the individual selections is understandable but it is unfortunate that this CD reissue is only 32 and a half minutes long, for what is here is quite memorable. Guitar Moods, which lives up to its name, is recommended anyway.

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.
Helmuth Rilling, Bach-Collegium Stuttgart, Gächinger Kantorei - Bach: Great Sacred Choral Works (10CDs) [2010]

Helmuth Rilling, Bach-Collegium Stuttgart, Gächinger Kantorei - Bach: Great Sacred Choral Works (10CDs) [2010]
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue & Log) ~ 2.71 Gb | Total time: 10:48:54 | Scans included
Classical | Label: Sony Classical | # 88697687172 | Recorded: 1969-1985

Helmuth Rilling is an excellent conductor and interpreter of Bach's sacred music. Recorded from 1969 to 1985, over a longer period of time than most other sets, there is a lot of change throughout the series. Rilling's recordings are more dense and lush than others, and his tempi are often slower than HIP recordings - no "original instruments" for Rilling. But he creates such a detailed sound-world that any fan of these works should want to hear Rilling's versions to compare with others. This said, Rilling often uses a technique that I find a bit disturbing. He'll have one instrument or group of instruments sequestered to one track, and others on the other track, giving a sound similar to that of early Beatles' stereo mixes, where vocals were on one track and instruments on the other. This is something you never hear in live performance; while one instrument may be on one side, you still hear it on the other side. This tends to make some of the movements sound as though there's no blend among the singers and musicians.

Camerata Musica Limburg & Jan Schumacher - Wehmut: The Complete Choral Works for Male Voices by Franz Schubert, Vol. 3 (2017)

Camerata Musica Limburg & Jan Schumacher - Wehmut: The Complete Choral Works for Male Voices by Franz Schubert, Vol. 3
Classical, Vocal | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 60:50 min | 268 MB
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!

Label: SOMM Recordings | Tracks: 19 | Rls.date: 2017

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.
