    Default Sacred music; what have you been listening to lately?

    A thread just for sacred music...

    Claudio Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 - The Sixteen, Harry Christophers 2014.jpg

    another beautiful production from The Sixteen and Harry Christophers, well worth including to your listening pleasure.

    This one I listen to so often it borders on unhealthy. It is one of my favourite recordings, a definite "desert island" recording

    Jordi Savall's Palestrina recording somehow slipped under the radar with the critics, but since I've stumbled onto it, I'm continually impressed with it.

    Ah, now that sounds like a member with whom I might have something in common !
    If I were to suggest 6 , to coincide with S-A-C-R-E-D, reasonably at random, might that spark any interest anywhere ?

    Sculthorpe(Peter) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDMYcPhftFI (link to part 5 Canticle...not much else available on YT ?)
    Artyomov(Vyacheslav) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoojDNgaIMY
    Colgrass(Michael) - yes, instrumental & not traditional, but if we're talking C20/21 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVE6ZZ0SDSM
    Ryu(Jeajoon) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRjsj9XSIE4 (link to part 1)
    Eisler(Hanns) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9Vs5NZQlKI
    Desenclos(Alfred) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ilcp1sCcMiQ (link to introit & kyrie - much else apparently unavailable where I am)

    Could swap 'sacred' ideas for hours with anyone remotely interested (PM welcome !)

    Pergolesi: Stabat Mater
    Gemma Bertagnolli & Sara Mingardo
    Concerto Italiano, Rinaldo Alessandrini

    Vivaldi Nisi Dominus, Pergolesi Stabat Mater - Rinaldo Alessandrini, Concerto Italiano.jpg

    For a while I was preferring the Antonio Pappano 2010 recording with Anna Netrebko and Marianna Pizzolato but leaning this way recently

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I accidentally discovered part of Rachmaninoff's Vespers on a YouTube tribute page to Grand Duchess Elizabeth of Russia who became a nun after her Romanov husband, Grand Duke Sergei, was assassinated in 1905. Beautifully mystical music. The link is below. Can someone identify the name of the movement being performed? Thanks!

    Oh yes, cjvinthechair, it is! No. 2. brings tears to my eyes. I love Rachmaninoff, but this work takes my appreciation of him to a whole new level. Thanks for identifying the movement for me!

    Poulenc's sacred music is excellent.

    Thinking of this, the pieces I´ve been listening to most recently were some among the favourites:

    - Haydn: Nelson Mass/ Willcocks/ Decca
    - Verdi etc.: "Mass for Rossini" (collective work) / Rilling
    - Händel: The Messiah (in English; he recorded it in German too) / Richter / DG
    - Silvestrov: Requiem for Larissa / ECM
    - Vivaldi: Magnificat & Gloria / Muti / EMI

    Mmm...feel justified for once in putting up just one piece as a follow-up! Lera Auerbach 'Russian Requiem' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKxjS-fzKQQ (just a brief link - you may well find the whole thing on the Net, but not on YT)

    I love this type of music. Lately, though, I've been listening to new gospel music.
