    Shostakovich, Symphony No 7 - Czech PO, Karel Ančerl.

    Recorded in glorious mono the week before I was born in 1957 this is a very fine disc, some say the remastered Ancerl Gold Edition has better sound, I haven't heard it so can't comment.
    What I like about Ancerl's recording is that it is an individual take on the Symphony - maybe it is understated in some ways but not overly so, he manages to keep things moving forward with good, but not excessive, pace - he seems to get the tempos about right to my ear, bearing in mind I am not entirely sure what the correct 'speed' is. Aggressive and in your face it is not - enjoyable for sure.

    Parisian organist Gabriel Fauré wrote his Mass for the Dead in the late 1880s, promising to deliver ‘something different’. His supremely beautiful and enduringly popular Requiem appears to float in its own time and space, with music that radiates reassurance, its clear lines and gentle accompaniments the work of a master craftsman who never wasted a note.

    Reena Esmail’s 2020 piece When The Violin uses Thomás Luis de Victoria’s 16th-century motet O Vos Omnes as the focal point. The result is a work that ‘moves through darkness and begins to let those very first slivers of light in’. Sacred music by JS Bach and his pioneering Italian contemporary Isabella Leonarda complete a concert from the BBC Singers and their Chief Conductor offering solace, inspiration and perfection.

    Johann Sebastian Bach: Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied
    Isabella Leonarda: Magnificat
    Johann Sebastian Bach: Komm, Jesu, komm
    Reena Esmail When the Violin
    Gabriel Fauré: Requiem

    Stephen Farr - organ
    BBC Singers
    Sofi Jeannin - conductor

    I'm having a Handel morning. The BBC disc, taken from two different concerts, is really very good, though there is occasional audience noise, but the Preston/Pinnock is a good deal better than merely good. These are quite possibly the most wonderful performanes of the Coronation Anthems ever recorded. The moment when the choir enter in Zadok the Priest is absolutely thrilling and the orchestral playing is quite exceptional.
