Product Description

Product Description

David Bates leads La Nuova Musica in 'Sacrifices', a programme of intensely dramatic oratorios from the mid Baroque. Three poignant tales of denail and sacrifice: St Peter's denial of Christ; Abraham's [narrowly averted] sacrifice of his son Isaac; and the Old Testament story of Jepthe, the hero commander who, before leading the Israelites into battle against the Ammonites, vows to God that if he is victorious, he will sacrifice the first living thing he meets upon his return. Unfortunately it is his darling daughter, who dances out to greet him with cymbals and flutes. Jepthe must honour his vow... In a dramatic lament, the daughter [she is never named] asks the mountains to bewail her fate - they answer in echoes; this is followed by one of the most moving choruses in all 17th C music.

Review

Bates, one of baroque music s rising stars, presents three fine 17th-century sacred pieces. First there s the delicious expressivity of Marc-Antoine Charpentier s Le Reniement de Saint Pierre and Sacrificium Abrahae, then the climax is a dramatic reading of Giacomo Carissimi s oratorio Historia di Jephte. The effect of Bates s performance is immediate, his relish of the agonising clashing harmonies in the lamenting final chorus irresistible. --Stephen Pettitt, The Sunday Times

'The recording itself has the quality of a live performance. Crucially, Bates brings to the fore the dramatic qualities of each oratio ... Bates always keeps a sense of pace in the long lines of this music, gloriously in the finale of Charpentier s La Reniement de Saint Pierre. The ensemble singing is unconstrained and nothing short of radiant, and the de Brossard instrumental pieces offer both balance and the instrumentalists of La Nuova Musica the chance to bring colour and vibrancy to the record.' --Tim Woodall, Early Music Today, September November 2014

'The soft-edged clarity of this smoothly sonorous recording is a tasteful foil to the high levels of emotion, definitely and effectively conveyed by an excellent cast.' --Rebecca Tavener, Choir & Organ Magazine, September October 2014

**** (performance) ***** (recording) 'Youthful voices and transparent instrumental textures capture both the intimacy and the immediacy of the music … felicitously played and expressively shaded by this fine team of players.' --Kate Bolton BBC Music Magazine, November 2014

'The soft-edged clarity of this smoothly sonorous recording is a tasteful foil to the high levels of emotion, definitely and effectively conveyed by an excellent cast.' --Rebecca Tavener, Choir & Organ Magazine, September October 2014

'A feast for those who love French baroque music … Recorded sound beautifully captures the warm acoustics of the venues, and profuse program notes and complete texts add to this outstanding issue.' --Robert Benson Classical CD Review, August 2014

'The soft-edged clarity of this smoothly sonorous recording is a tasteful foil to the high levels of emotion, definitely and effectively conveyed by an excellent cast.' --Rebecca Tavener, Choir & Organ Magazine, September October 2014

'beautifully performed … All three pieces…are a pleasure to hear, performed as they are by skilled and experienced members of this excellent ensemble … The line-up of singers here is impressive and gives all the colour and drama needed … Charpentier and Carissimi have established reputations to which this lovely issue simply adds lustre. Buy this, sit back and enjoy.' --Dave Billinge Music Web International, 22nd October 2014
