Product Description

CD Description

Ralph Vaughan Williams's sublime Mass in G minor reveals the composer's absorbing interest in using the modal harmonic language and contrapuntal textures of the English late Renaissance to achieve a huge emotional and dynamic range. Undoubtedly the most technically demanding work on this disc is A Vision of Aeroplanes, a virtuosic motet for mixed chorus and organ. Several neglected works also feature here, including The Voice out of the Whirlwind, an anthem for mixed chorus and orchestra or organ, and Valiant-for-truth, one of several works based on Bunyan's Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress.

Review

''This performance, lovingly moulded and well balanced in the play of solo voices and full choir, is in the best tradition.'' --Gramophone

''Compliments to the Naxos sound team for achieving clarity within a faithful representation of the St John's college acoustic…what impresses about this performance is the exceptional sense of shape, both in overview and in tiny details…This comes with a strong recommendation.'' --BBC Music Magazine

''There's no doubt [Vaughan Williams] would have doffed his boater to the latest recording…from Clare College….the sweeping energy and rich detail of Tim, Brown's interpretation draw out the best from his young singers, in matters musical and mystical.'' --Classic FM Magazine
