Notes and Editorial Reviews

GREAT SACRED MASTERPIECES (10-CD Box Set)

Music has always had an important part to play in religious ritual. Records show that plainchant existed from as early as 3 AD, and centuries later it was to provide a foundation for early polyphony and for the great flowering of church music in the Renaissance, including the transcendent works of Tallis and Allegri. JS Bach wrote most of his music for the Lutheran church, including the magnificent Mass in B Minor and the two Passions. Handel also contributed to religious music in England, with the creation of oratorios such as Messiah which, when witnessed by Haydn years later, inspired him to write The Creation. In the nineteenth century the form flowered again with Felix
Read more Mendelssohn, himself responsible for bringing many sacred works by JS Bach back to musical prominence. He completed Elijah in 1846; a work that, although modeled on the Handelian oratorio, clearly reflected in its lyricism and use of orchestral and choral colour Mendelssohn’s own genius as an early-Romantic composer. Particular attention has been given over the years to settings of the Requiem Mass. This collection includes three versions—from contemplative Mozart, to awesome Verdi, and sublime Fauré. Without doubt, in the years to come, religion will continue to be the driving inspirational force behind many a composition.

Reviews:

Tallis: Spem in alium
"Any performance of this huge work should be a celebration...This present reading is a memorable one. It's very difficult to convey the sweep and majesty of Tallis's extraordinary conception through a pair of loudspeakers but Summerly and his expanded forces make a pretty good job of doing so. For the recording the choirs were laid out in a cruciform arrangement and one can get some sense of the spatial separation from the conventional stereo format in which I listened. I should imagine, however, that the SACD version is much more impressive. Again, as elsewhere in the programme, I admire the clarity that Summerly brings to the proceedings. It's a challenge to avoid making a performance of Spem in alium no more than a wash of sound. Despite the inherent difficulties this is very much better than that and a satisfying amount of detail emerges. As elsewhere on this disc the control of dynamics is well done and when the louder passages occur the singing is thrillingly full-throated. This is a very satisfying disc, which I enjoyed greatly."

-- John Quinn, MusicWeb International [9/2005]

Fauré: Requiem
"The Naxos version makes an excellent bargain choice for the The fresh, forward choral tone goes with a direct, unmannered interpretation from Jeremy Summerly, with soloists comparably fresh-toned and English-sounding. The cantique de Jean Racine is most winningly done."

-- Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs [2003/4 Edition]

Bach: Mass in B minor
"This is an excellent, absolutely world-class recording of Bach's B minor Mass. Anyone familiar with the work of the Dresden Chamber Choir knows that it is one of the best around, and it sings with both precision and fervor. Helmut Müller-Brühl uses modern instruments but with a thorough knowledge of period practice. The celebratory choruses, such as the opening of the Gloria, the Credo's Et expecto resurrectionem, and the Sanctus, really dance with joy. Orchestral and vocal textures are immaculately clear. The trumpets and timpani have all of the necessary impact without a hint of shrillness, and even the flutes have a natural presence, lightly coloring Bach's instrumental palette."

-- David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com

Bach: Saint Matthew Passion
"Naxos's use of 'conventional' forces for this performance of Bach's great Passion belies a sensitivity to scale and nuance which is unquestionably modern day. Géza Oberfrank comes, however, from a mainstream tradition of Central European opera conductors (he was Principal Conductor of the Komische Oper in Berlin) and one senses from the beautifully paced opening chorus that this experience with large-scale forms will be a significant factor. Indeed, this proves to be the case though some may find his free-rolling approach—where one number follows briskly onwards without calculated rhetorical breaks—a touch breathless. Certainly in Part One, Oberfrank can seem rather too efficient at times with his light but slightly wooden articulations. Having said that, there is far more to admire than gripe about: his choice of tempos for arias is so natural that I cannot remember having found the difficult sequence from "Buss und Reu"to "0 Schmerz!" in Part One so spontaneous and refreshing. There is little self-indulgence in the expression of either József Mukk (Evangelist) or István Gáti (Christus), who identify with Oberfrank's surprisingly austere view of the drama. The former is clear-toned, carrying the story with a detached dignity. Of the 'desert island' arias (which one isn't?), Judit Németh's "Erbarme dich" is strikingly rich with an obbligato violin which shimmers appealingly."

-- Gramophone [8/1994]

 no place else July 13, 2012 By John T. (Dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "The sacred choral music found hereon is very fine, a good selection, and the kind of recording that is difficult to find (local record stores having all but disappeared. If you are a fan of wonderful church music that does not sound like it escaped from the local rock and roll station, you will enjoy this. The recording sounds like a reissue, but is quite good."
