The essential Bach choir by Andrew Parrott( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and German and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What type of choir did Bach have in mind as he created his cantatas, Passions and Masses? How many singers were at his disposal in Leipzig, and in what ways did he deploy them in his own music? Seeking to understand the very medium of Bach's incomparable choral output, Andrew Parrott investigates a wide range of sources: Bach's own writings, and the scores and parts he used in performance, but also a variety of theoretical, pictorial and archival documents, together with the musical testimony of the composer's forerunners and contemporaries

Joined by a starry team of soloists, Layton directs a particularly vivid account of the work, the excitement of the narrative drama contrasting with heartbreaking moments of reflection

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part

Carmelite Vespers by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pesar su propio Luteranismo, Handel escribió una notable música para la liturgia católica, durante su juventud en Roma. La interpretación de Parrott y sus grupos Taverner es regocijante. Handel escribió obviamente para un estelar soprano castrati, pero aquí las verdaderas "estrellas" son tres sopranos solistas (femeninas) de Parrott. Jill Feldman no estaba en su mejor voz para esta grabación: sus momentos más fuertes pueden sonar un poquito forzados, pero su cantar más suave es verdaderamente encantador. Emma Kirkby es, por supuesto, un placer en el "Laudate pueri", y Emily van Evera canta a la perfección
