classical music: anthems
David Garrett is a rock 'n' roll concert violinist! If that sounds like an oxymoron, you'll be surprised by his powerfully fierce take on classic rock anthems when played by he and a symphony orchestra! This ain't long-haired music in a Leonard Bernstein way; it's long-haired music in a mullets and beer bongs kind of way. Listen for yourself on CD or be dazzled by the imagery, too, with the DVD!
Best Loved Hymns
Warner Classics, 2003
The Tallis Scholars Sing Thomas Tallis - including Spem in Alium
''To go from the medieval world of Ave, Dei patris to the stark directness of If ye love me, to the soaring phrases of Gaude gloriosa, to the compact intensity of the Lamentations and O sacrum convivium, to the incredible sonorities of Spem in alium is to travel as far as one man can ever have taken his listeners.'' - Peter Phillips

Produced by the composer himself, this is the first recording of the ensemble version of John Rutter' radiant Requiem. Written in 1985, the work is not a conventional setting of the Requiem Mass but comprises a personal selection of texts from the Catholi

Guilty Pleasures is the long-awaited follow-up to Renees Grammy winner The Beautiful Voice. This album allows Renee to indulge in musical cherry-picking, singing songs and arias in eight different languages. The sheer, unabashed beauty of these pieces provides their thematic connection. Ranging from familiar favorites like the Flower Duet from Lakme (sung with Renees friend Susan Graham) to rapturous, rarely-heard melodies of Tchaikovsky, Dvorak ...

Georg Friedrich Handel
Polygram Records, 1990
Everyone loves Handel's choruses, and probably no other composer had such an intuitive feel for the sound of massed voices in a big space. The problem with Handel's oratorios, of course, is all of those nasty arias (which is why Israel in Egypt , which has very few, is so popular today). So if you're a chorus nut who can't stand solo singing, why not try the four Coronation Anthems --like Bach's Magnificat , they contain just about everything ...
