9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jacques COULARDEAU on 7 Nov. 2010
Format: Audio CD
The first surprise with this CD is that it does not contain one note by Monteverdi and it is true it is mostly Italian composers from the next century, the 17th century. Apart from the Stabat Mater Dolorosa by Sances, the other pieces are from a vast array of composers and also different styles like Legrenzi in the second track that treats his "Ave Regina Coelorum" as a duet from some imaginary and tender country of love, more courteous and refined than a religious piece. Cavalli's "O quam suavis" takes us down into a tenebrae that turns slightly resigned. It is a very dark atmosphere indeed that only lightens at the end, and not that much after all. Jaroussky's voice is perfect in these in-between impressions of curbed emotions and dark feelings.

Rigatti's "Regina coeli laetare" could be joyous all along except that when we beg Mary to speak to her son on our behalf, a slightly sad coloration is introduced, showing that it is not as simple as being resurrected and then saving the whole world. We still have a lot to be humble about. Caprioli's "Vulnerati cor meum" is a love declaration to Mary and that love which will never be fulfilled carnally is poignantly sad in its very joy and the voice is the only means to express the absolute happiness of someone who has been reminded that this love leads only to an accepted death.

Sances' "Stabat Mater dolorosa" provides us with a miracle and a second surprise. The miracle is the sky-high sky-clear voice and the surprise is that it is a male voice that sings that piece. We have been used so much to have Stabat Mater sung by women that we believe more or less tat it is a woman talking to Mary, a woman talking to another woman, but that is not at all the truth.

Watch the copyrights 7 May 2010
By Arthur Leonard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having seen the promotional announcements, I ran to my local store this week to pick up a copy. When some of the contents sounded familiar, I glanced down to the copyright date - (c) 2006, (c) 2010. The 2006 cautioned me not to buy, since I've got every Jaroussky Virgin Classics release, so I decided to check my catalogue at home. It appears that they have reissued the 2006 release, Beata Vergine, with a different cover (nice photo of Jaroussky), and perhaps a different order of the compositions on the disc. I suppose the 2010 copyright date relates solely to the packaging, since you can't copyright the same musical performances twice. Released at full-price, unlike some other Virgin Classics recycling of relatively recent releases. Perhaps they figured out it would sell much better with a nice photo of Philippe on the cover rather than the rather bizarre artwork of the original release. I don't think the title change does anything for it commercially.
This was a sensationally good recording on original release, and anybody who doesn't have it should order it right away. But I question the ethics of Virgin Classics in not stating prominently on the back that the release consists of previously issued material.

Repackaging of a previous release 4 May 2010
By Blake&Mortimer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Be advised that this CD is a reissue, under a totally different title, of a previous recording by Jaroussky. Issued in 2006, it was called "Beata Vergine" and is still available on Amazon.com, albeit at a higher price.

The program has no been changed at all and the contents are exactly identical, but under a different cover picture. Don't fall for it if you already own the first one.

On the other hand, if you don't already have it, there is absolutely no reason to let this reissue go by since this is an excellent recording.

Jaroussky uses his voice in its angelic, almost unearthly, mode for these works, a choice that is perfect for pieces in the Marial repertory. He is joined by Canadian Marie-Nicole Lemieux on 2 of them. Accompaniement by his Astarserse Ensemble is excellent, with the formation kept at a small size (strings and organ), in keeping with the devotional tone.

Sensualilty meeting with Celestial love 7 Nov. 2010
By Jacques COULARDEAU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first surprise with this CD is that it does not contain one note by Monteverdi and it is true it is mostly Italian composers from the next century, the 17th century. Apart from the Stabat Mater Dolorosa by Sances, the other pieces are from a vast array of composers and also different styles like Legrenzi in the second track that treats his "Ave Regina Coelorum" as a duet from some imaginary and tender country of love, more courteous and refined than a religious piece.

Rigatti's "Regina coeli laetare" could be joyous all along except that when we beg Mary to speak to her son on our behalf, a slightly sad coloration is introduced, showing that it is not as simple as being resurrected and then saving the whole world. We still have a lot to be humble about. Caprioli's "Vulnerati cor meum" is a love declaration to Mary and that love which will never be fulfilled carnally is poignantly sad in its very joy and the voice is the only means to express the absolute happiness of someone who has been reminded that this love leads only to an accepted death.

Sances' "Stabat Mater dolorosa" provides us with a miracle and a second surprise. The miracle is the sky-high sky-clear voice and the surprise is that it is a male voice that sings that piece. We have been used so much to have Stabat Mater sung by women that we believe more or less tat it is a woman talking to Mary, a woman talking to another woman, but that is not at all the truth. It is a man who is speaking to Mary and that man is trying to climb up to Mary to speak to her in some level equal terms that enables him to shift from compassion and love for that suffering mother to someone who is asking her to guarantee his future after death. The ecstatic beginning that describes the death of Jesus and the suffering of the mother at the foot of the cross is followed in the third stanza with a deep music, somber behind the clear voice that is tortured in expressing suffering in notes of light. That contrast is amplified in the fourth stanza between the music and the voice that integrates the somberness in its modulation. In the seventh stanza a change appears when the poem shifts from describing the death of Jesus and the pain of the mother to the reason why Jesus got crucified: to save people. The seventh stanza the stanza of the resurrection, His resurrection probably but here our resurrection.

In the ninth stanza (the right number, the ninth hour, the death of Jesus) the poet introduces himself and starts asking the mother to help him in his own lot, and this re-centering of the poem on the "I" of the poet is audible in the singing that becomes more inward oriented, expectative more than contemplative. Then stanza thirteen ("I will make you the thirteenth" says Jesus to Judas) the first person of the poet is the very center and object of the poem, the passion is the only way to achieve salvation and it has to be integrated in the poet's mind and Mary is supposed to help. The fact that a man is singing that part that can only be the part of a man, gives to the poem a new dimension that is a lot less visible when it is a woman who sings: the poem is the begging of a man who wants to be saved no matter what and is ready to humiliate himself to the utmost if necessary. And he closes the poem with no longer Jesus' dead body on the cross but with his banal dead body waiting for burial, and his soul expecting salvation. The first two lines of this twentieth stanza are deep and obscure like an uncertain future, but it explodes in a word of light and a high flying note on the word "Paradisi" repeated three times (the proper number) with lengthening variations on the last two syllables and finding its fundament in the final "gloria" and "Amen"

Bassani's "Corda lingua in amore" is built like some love song to Mary, some love scene in an opera. The Virgin is thus some mental and spiritual character of a baroque miracle play of sorts. The fourth aria is an explosion of passion and desire. It is a real love song to Mary, joyous, light, intense. The end is more respective of the superior position of Mary.

Grandi's "O quam pulchra es" is an echo of the Song of Songs and that's exactly what it is. Total love but in many ways unrequited or simply not deserving an answer, hence the last very nostalgic notes. The duet "O intemerata" makes the male voice completely unable to climb to any satisfaction and the female voice dominates and puts that man back in its adoring place that has to be adoration and not sensual love. The duet though gives that sensual dimension a strength that can only end in frustration. I will skip Mattioli and Casati who are like a transition to the last piece, Colonna's "O coeli devota", in which the Holy Virgin is a spiritual and celestial being celebrated on earth with the help of all the angels of the firmament. Then the drama of the Passion is beyond us and we float into felicity.

Homage to the Virgin Mary 25 Jan. 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SANCES is one of Phillipe Jaroussky's finest recordings. Not only is the recording unique - from the excellent and image of the artist on the cover to the variety of composers included - but it is also some of the most beautiful singing this fine performer has created. Each of the works is an homage to the Virgin Mary and that theme alone holds the recital together. But also in addition to Jarrousky's pliable and smooth countertenor who has been described as 'a young singer with the tone of an angel and the virtuosity of the devil' the recording benefits greatly from the collaboration with Ensemble Artaserse, a group of instrumentalists created by Jarrousky performing on period instruments - including the positiv - that gives the sound an otherworldly, very spiritual ambience.

Jaroussky (has no difficulty moving form one composer to the other, adapting his voice for the demands of each, always with a beautifully produced sound as well as rather exceptional pyrotechnical skills. The composers included in this collection are Giovanni Paolo Colonna, Giovanni Battista Bassani, Giovanni Paolo Caprioli, Giovanni Legrenzi, Andrea Mattioli, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Francesco Cavalli, Girolamo Casati, Giovanni Felice Sances, Giovanni Antonio Rigatti, and Alessandro Grandi - all composers from the 16th and 17th centuries. With the exception of Frescobaldi and Cavalli most of these composers are little known, but one listening to this recording and the audience will be captivated with the variations possible in this period of music.

Every aspect of this recording is secure and warmly produced. It is a fine addition to the the library. Grady Harp, January 12

Doubtful Virginity! 6 May 2010
By Giordano Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Virgin Classics" has just slipped one past me! Torqued my wrench for me! Thumped my tires and given me a flat! This is exactly the same performance by Philippe Jaroussky that was released with different cover art and A DIFFERENT TITLE! And I bought it just because Jaroussky is the most accomplished male soprano of our era! The other release is titled "Beata Vergine". If I remember correctly, I've already reviewed it. I won't send this one back, however; I'll hold onto it and give it to someone for a birthday. It's not Philippe's fault, and hey, the other cover was uuugly!
