Alfreda Hodgson

Biography

Born: June 7, 1940; Morecombe, England   Died: April 16, 1992; Morecombe, England  
The tragically short-lived Alfreda Hodgson had become one of England's most-respected mezzo-sopranos, regarded with much affection by many colleagues and conductors who were all inspired by her deep and intuitive musicianship. Her voice was a full mezzo-soprano (or mezzo-contralto) of great warmth, if sometimes one of imperfect steadiness. Her interpretations, however, frequently probed far beneath surface elements to reach a life-altering Read more musical truth. While she occasionally sang in opera, her greatest imprint was made on the concert stage, both in recital and in orchestral performance. Many recordings survive to attest to her stature as a singer. Hodgson received her formal training at the Northern School of Music in Manchester and made her first concert appearance in Liverpool in 1961. Two years later, she made her London debut, after which engagements followed with many of England's principal orchestras. Within the next decade, she traveled to America and Israel, continually expanding her repertory. In 1974, she accepted a contract with the English National Opera and she later sang at Covent Garden (1983), but she principally remained a concert artist. Her interests were wide ranging, from music of the Baroque to scores by contemporary composers. Within Hodgson's recorded legacy are many significant items. Her Das Lied von der Erde with conductor Jascha Horenstein is regarded as among the best ever. Hodgson's heart-piercing poignancy is matched by Horenstein's own in leading the live performance. The mezzo's singing of the alto arias in Robert Shaw's final recording of Messiah was striking, as was her work in an English-language recording of Bach's St. John Passion led by Benjamin Britten. Hodgson recorded Elgar's The Kingdom twice and left a memento of her way with the music of Michael Tippett when she recorded Sosostris' aria under the direction of the composer himself. Other important discs included those devoted to an English-language Bach St. Matthew Passion directed by David Willcocks, madrigals by Monteverdi, and Rossini's Petite messe solonnelle conducted by Laszlo Heltay.

Comfort Ye My People
Every Valley Shall Be Exalted
And The Glory Of The Lord
Thus Saith The Lord
But Who May Abide The Day Of His Coming?
And He Shall Purify
Behold, A Virgin Shall Conceive
O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings To Zion
For, Behold, A Darkness Shall Cover The Earth
The People That Walked In Darkness
For Unto Us A Child Is Born
Pastoral Symphony
There Were Shepherds Abiding In The Field
And The Angel Said Unto Them
And Suddenly There Was With The Angel
Glory To God
Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter Of Zion
Then Shall The Eyes Of The Blind Be Opened
He Shall Feed His Flock Like A Shepherd
His Yoke Is Easy, And His Burthen Is Light
Behold The Lamb Of God
He Was Despised
But Thanks Be To God
If God Be For Us, Who Can Be Against Us?
Worthy Is The Lamb
