classical music: anthems
Jewish Cello Masterpieces
Leggiero Records, 2002
A beautiful collection of great Jewish Music. Classics by Ernest Bloch and Max Bruch, mixed with rarely heard gems by Maurice Ravel, Zavel Zilberts, Jacob Wasilkovsky, and David Meyerowitz. "Wie Shlecht es is Ohn Gelt", a Yiddish Theatre gem, is alone worth the price of admission for its mixture of pathos and humor. The songs by Zilberts are an important and beautiful part of the Jewish music legacy that must be heard.
Abide With Me: 50 Favourite Hymns
Double Decca, 1999
Compiled here are fifty of the most beloved hymns performed by three of England's most distinguished choirs. Every selection here is sung in an appropriately dignified manner and if you're up for over two hours of consistently well-rendered quintessentially English treatments of these vernacular favorites it simply doesn't get any better than this.
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 ...

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

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!

O Magnum Mysterium
Tomas Luis de Victoria
The trademark qualities of a Robert Shaw-trained chorus included perfect tonal blend and balance, expressive phrasing, and superb tuning. As an interpreter, Shaw hewed to the middle road, steering clear of eccentricities and honoring the composer's intentions. On this tribute disc, we hear these virtues coalesce in works such as Poulenc's austere Christmas hymn "O magnum mysterium," one of three settings of the text here. Shaw was at his ...

Handel: Chandos Anthems (Complete)
George Frideric Handel
This series of 11 church anthems is a sterling example of doing more with less. Though their format is multiple movements for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, inviting grand treatment, Handel had available only a couple of oboes and a small string band and choir (with no violas or altos for numbers 1 to 6). Yet each one of these anthems is a gem. Handel's music captures well the changing moods of the Psalm texts--from somber penitence to serene ...
