Descrizione prodotto


The Sixteen let the music speak for itself. --Gramophone, Christmas '12

Beautifully sung- as we would expect from one of Britain's most accomplished and consistently impressive choirs and presented with the perfect mix of academic rigour and communicative zeal which elevates every one of the recordings into a true art in its own right. --IRR, Dec'12

The Sixteen are at their best in jubliant passages of celebration such as those in the motet Hodie Christus where there is exhultation at Christ's birth.In the Osanna we find something beyond mere noisy joyfulness; the bright, fluid soprano voices construct crystal clear patterns which can then be deftly followed by the rest of the choir. Performance **** Recording *** --BBC Music Magazine, Feb'13

Review for volumes 1-4: Would have given 5 stars but the recording engineers have tin ears. The chant sections are cut off before the reverberation is complete. This happens throughout volumes 1-4 for the most part. Why in the world would they do that? Baffling… I would have expected better from Classic FM. That distraction aside, the performance is flawless and crisp as can be.

5.0 su 5 stelle Gorgeous Palestrina Christmas and other music by the choral group The Sixteen 24 dicembre 2012
Di Kenneth Bergman - Pubblicato su
Formato: Audio CD
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina was a prolific composer of the Sixteenth Century; mostly he set sacred texts to music, although he also composed madrigals of a secular nature. He spent most of his life in Rome, composing masses, motets, and other religious works for church use. Late in his life he arranged for publication of many of his manuscripts, but many more were not published until years, even centuries, after his death in 1594.

Early in his career, Palestrina studied with German composers then living in Italy and learned their contrapuntal techniques. As a result, he became the first Italian composer to wed northern European counterpoint with Italian cantabile style, which was later widely imitated by other composers, both Italian and non-Italian. The use of counterpoint is most telling in his many motets, including the examples on this CD.

The Sixteen, under the direction of Harry Christophers, have recorded two CD's of Palestrina's music. The second CD, discussed here, features music of the Christmas season. The principle recorded work is a Palestrina mass: "Hodie Christus Natus est" (Today Christ is born). A short motet of the same name is the first selection on the CD and contains some of the mass music in embryo form; it was apparently a study piece for the later mass. There are also other motets, antiphons (where a chanted verse is answered by one with a choral setting), and three gorgeous settings of verses from the biblical "Song of Songs," attributed to King Solomon but actually written centuries later. The CD ends with the motet "O Magnum Mysterium," one of Palestrina's greatest musical settings and every bit as splendid as Victoria's more familiar one from the same period.

All of this music is quite beautiful, and the Sixteen (actually consisting of 19 choristers in this recording) do it justice. Palestrina often calls for five-, or even six-part harmony in his works, and the singers are capable of doing divided parts perfectly when called for. Their voices blend together very well, with no harshness, yet each line of the often contrapuntal music is clearly heard. The February 2012 recording was made at the Church of St. Alban the Martyr in London, and the acoustics are excellent, with enough resonance to enliven the music but without muddying the sound. The accompanying pamphlet gives detailed information about the musical selections, the chorus, and the conductor along with the complete texts and translations of the selections.

One can listen to this glorious music on two levels, either focusing on the musical complexity of Palestrina's impressive compositional technique or just absorbing the mood of these fine sacred works without listening intently. Either way, this is a top-notch recording of some great a cappella choral settings by one of the greatest composers of sacred music. Highly recommended!
