Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

The first new recording of Vaughan Williams's magnificent Mass in G Minor in more than 10 years, this version from the Chicago-based His Majestie's Clerkes ensemble goes to the top of the list for its exceptional sound and for its solid, thoroughly musical performances. The program is filled out with first-rate renditions of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford's exquisite Op. 38 motets--favorites of choirs and audiences from the minute they were written-- and Hubert Parry's six Songs of Farewell, whose superbly crafted part- writing combines perfectly with the romanticized spirituality of the texts. Except for a brief lapse of intonation in the Vaughan Williams--not unusual even for the finest choirs--these are exemplary performances that make a good case for tempos generally more brisk than we may have heard before. --David Vernier --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Hear this Prayer June 27 2000
By Ryan Pagenkopf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD entralled me. I was skeptical of a twenty-four member ensemble being able to effectively hold together the intricacies of Vaughan William's Mass in G minor, assuming that the work was more fit for 40 or 50 member groups. However, His Majesty's Clerkes do an excellent job of conveying the reverence and solemnity of the mass through their depth and tone and produce a volume greater than the sum of their parts. Even their tonality, which is a difficult function that most choirs have trouble meeting, is very well done. The same can be said of the rest of the works on this CD. Most musicians are familiar with the splendor of the Stanford works and His Majesty's Clerkes are certainly up to the task of confronting a set of works so well known and scrutinized. The Songs of Farewell are works I was previously unacquainted with but now find tremendous pleasure in listening to. Being that Vaughan Williams is my favorite composer, however, I always revert to the mass, for it is there that I believe the true essence of the title of this CD comes forward and makes itself known and prominent. A wonderful buy.
