Notes and Editorial Reviews



MORS ET RESURRECTIO Haig Mardirosian, dir; Ens Torculus CENTAUR CRC 3028 (52:01 Text and Translation)


This program offers two of the most frequently recorded chant Masses in the Gregorian repertoire, the funeral Mass and the Easter Mass. Both have the expected Ordinary as well as Proper parts. Haig Mardirosian, a longtime colleague on this magazine, has been active as choir director and organist in the Washington area, where this was made, though he is now teaching in Florida. This is a calculated effort to Read more render the chants in the traditional Gajard manner, sung from the Liber Usualis , as is evident in the small variations revealed in many of the chants. (At least 10 chants can be singled out this way.) The seven members of the ensemble follow their director without any fussiness. Both cycles have been recorded in a variety of interpretations, so this disc will be most useful to those who want traditional interpretation and a coupling of two of the most basic Masses of the repertoire.
