    And then I'm now watching Janáček's Glagolithic Mass, which is very different to what I'm used to rom a choral Mass:

    I just bought a FLAC download of this wonderful three-disc set from Jordi Savall, Maestros del Siglo de Oro:

    Currently listening to a new work on me, the Officium Defunctorum by Morales. Beautifully sung here.

    Had this playing in the car for today's commuting and splendid it was too, slightly different from what I usually go for and all the better for that.

    Recently watched this magnificent performance of the Monteverdi 1610 Vespers. The use of imaginative lighting and the antiphonal positioning of the soloists enhanced the performance. The singers and ensemble were excellent.

    An excellent collection of chant, antiphons and songs in praise of Our Lady beautifully sung.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Maurice Duruflé:

    Requiem
    Four Motets
    Messe Cum Jubilo

    Patricia Bardon (soprano)
    Ashley Riches (bass-baritone)
    Choir of Kings College, Cambridge
    Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
    Stephen Cleobury (conductor)

    Recently I've been listening to some different recordings of Duruflé's beautiful choral music. The other day I picked up this lovely performance of the 1961 version of the requiem with a small orchestra, which definitely changes the mood of the piece. There are still quiet, meditative moments with just the organ and chorus, though. And the boys' angelic voices are a nice alternative.
