Product Description

Product Description

The Englishman Peter Philips spent most of his life abroad, and was celebrated all over Europe in his day. Despite this, Philips's music has been neglected since his death in 1628of his immense output of vocal music, to this day most people know only a handful of motets from the five-voice Cantiones sacrae (1612). The present recording of half of the companion volume of eight-voice motets seeks to remedy this situation.

These triumphant and highly Italianate settings are performed by The Choir of Royal Holloway, joined by The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, who have gilded so many choral recordings of the music of Gabrieli and Monteverdi in the past.

Review

This disc makes a substantial additional to the discography of Philip's music and is a fitting quadricentenary celebration of its publication. --IRR, May'13

The choir of Royal Holloway is a fine one on this showing, its sopranos sounding rather boyish and agile, the sound full and well balanced but not overpowering. --Gramophone, June'13

The Royal Holloway Choir is adept and musical and,at its best, can pull off splendid peformances as we can hear in the opening Benedictus Deus noster where voices and instruments combine. Performance and Recording *** --BBC Music Magazine, July'13

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an excellent opportunity to hear music that is rarely sung and even more rarely recorded. The choir is well balanced and sings with intelligence and an ear for each other making a well blended sound.

Definitely recommended.
