Product Description

The Brook Street Band join forces with the Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford, and their director Owen Rees, for the first ever pairing on disc of the two settings of the Dixit Dominus by Alessandro Scarlatti and George Frideric Handel.

Following five critically-acclaimed and immensely popular recordings for AVIE, The Brook Street Band embark on their most ambitious project to date: a recording with the estimable student Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford, that pairs for the first time ever the two settings of the Dixit Dominus written by Alessandro Scarlatti and George Frideric Handel. Both works date from early 18th century Rome, Handel's within a year of his arriving in the musical capital, and possibly influenced by Scarlatti's work, though the date of the elder Italian's composition is not precisely known. Indeed it has been suggested that the 22-year-old Lutheran was attempting to outdo Scarlatti with his masterly grasp of large-scale sacred music for the Roman rite. In between these two grand Vespers, The Brook Street Band serve up a palette cleanser of an instrumental concerto in G minor by Scarlatti.

On this recording the massed forces are joined by five of Britain's brightest young singers: soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, mezzo-sopranos Esther Brazil and Sally Bruce-Payne, tenor Guy Cutting, and bass-baritone Matthew Brook.

Personnel: Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford, Owen Rees (director), The Brook Street Band, Elin Manahan Thomas (soprano), Esther Brazil, Sally Bruce-Payne (mezzo-soprano), Guy Cutting (tenor), Matthew Brook (bass-baritone)

Critical acclaim for The Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford:

"The choir produced an exquisitely pure sound...[Owen Rees] an impressive conductor." - Early Music Review

Critical acclaim for The Brook Street Band:
