Classical / Choral / Chamber Music

To celebrate Arvo Part's 80th birthday, Gimell presents a new recording of some of the Estonian composer's finest a cappella choral works. This is the first album of contemporary music from The Tallis Scholars since their famous 1984 recording of works by John Tavener. The program here includes several major works including the Magnificat, Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen, Triodion and I Am the True Vine. The album's title refers to the compositional style Part developed in the 1970s and now employs in most of his works. This simple style was influenced by the composer's mystical experiences with sacred chant. Tintinnabuli works often have a slow and meditative tempo and a minimalist approach to both notation and performance.

“The Missa Corona spinea is a kind of treble concerto, packed with mind-blowing sonorities. If ever there was music to exemplify Shakespeare’s ‘Music of the Spheres’, it is here. The first performance, probably in front of Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey, must have been an astonishing occasion.” (Peter Phillips)

"…For anyone coming to Josquin’s music for the first time this generous compilation is an ideal way to discover his music. However, a word of warning is appropriate: the music is addictive and once you have sampled it in these exquisite performances you may well want to join The Tallis Scholars on their exploration of all Josquin’s Masses." ~musicweb-international
Jean Mouton - Missa Dictes moy toutes voz pensees (The Tallis Scholars) (2012)

French composer Jean Mouton was just slightly younger than Josquin Desprez, to whose music his own a cappella choral pieces bear a superficial resemblance. He never followed his contemporaries into the employ of Italy's powerful families, and it is perhaps because he doesn't fit musicology's prevailing narratives that he has been somewhat under-recorded. His best-known work comes at the end here: the motet Nesciens mater, a dual-choir piece written in canon. The Tallis Scholars, unusually for them, perform that work with one voice to a part. It works in this texturally complex piece, clarifying the counterpoint. Equally exhaustive in its way is the Missa Dictes moy toutes voz pensées, which is based on the three-part song that opens the album and explores every last bit of it in a variety of textures. There are several other motets included, and the whole album holds together very beautifully on a plane of calm balance. The Tallis Scholars do this kind of thing very well, and though there's room for a recording that uses a slightly larger choir (most of the music uses two voices per part), this does make one want to hear more of Mouton's masses. The sonics in the Chapel of Oxford's Merton College are impressively rendered. (James Manheim)
