Trahe Me Post Te (O'Donnell, Westminster Cathedral Choir)
This CD contains seven works by Victoria,: the CD title mass "Missa Trahe me post te", the 5-part motet on which it is based, three 8-part motets and two 5-part motets.

For me the CD was worth buying just for two of the 8-part motets alone - the "Alma redemptoris mater" and the "Salve Regina". I have played both many times and I have just listened to them again. The experience is just as moving as when I heard them for the first time.

An adjudicator at a music festival once said that what he looked for was a performance which "raised the hairs on the back of his neck". These two motets certainly do so for me. For some indefinable reason I feel that the choir is enjoying what it is singing, and singing from its heart with conviction. Musically, the individual strands of the polyphony come through clearly, helped by the contrasting timbres of the several voices.

Saying anything helpful on the Mass is much more difficult. It is a musical setting of the central sacramental rite of the Christian Church. Experiencing it in a Cathedral as a believer with other like-minded worshippers is different from listening to it alone in your own home. It is different again if it means nothing to you religiously and for you it is just another piece of early music to be judged solely on quality of composition and performance and how pleasing it is to the ear.

It is what is called a `parody' mass - one whose musical theme is based on another motet, or on a secular tune well known to the worshippers.

Westminster Cathedral (Roman Catholic) has always had a tradition of good music. James O/Donnell is a very talented musician
and these works were sung in an appropriate manner. well done! jb
