The essential Bach choir by Andrew Parrott( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and German and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the findings shed a surprising, even disturbing, light on conventions we have long taken for granted. A whole world away from, say, the typical oratorio choir of Handel's London with which we are reasonably familiar, the essential Bach choir was in fact an expert vocal quartet (or quintet), whose members were also responsible for all solos and duets. (In a mere handful of Bach's works, this solo team was selectively supported by a second rank of singers--also one per part--whose contribution was all but optional). Parrott shows that this use of a one-per-part choir was mainstream practice in the Lutheran Germany of Bach's time: Bach chose to use single voices not because a larger group was unavailable, but because they were the natural vehicle of elaborate concerted music

Carmelite Vespers by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

23 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 371 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

La grabación de Andrew Parrott es considerada tanto por los críticos como los oyentes como LA GRABACION de las Vísperas de Monteverdi de 1610. Usando fuerzas mínimas, las voces individuales se acodan una sobre otra oyéndose claramente, no ahogadas en una masa de sonido como en muchas grabaciones "más completas"
