North German church music in the age of Buxtehude by Geoffrey Webber( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) was the greatest figure in the history of German music between Schutz and Bach. His church music is performed today, yet that of his North German contemporaries (such as Matthias Weckmann, Christoph Bernhard, Nicolaus Bruhns, and Johann Meder) has received comparatively little attention. This book, taking its lead from Jerome Roche's illuminating study North Italian Church Music in the Age of Monteverdi (OUP, 1984), presents an overview of the North German church music of Buxtehude's lifetime, much of which remains unavailable in modern editions. It challenges widely-held beliefs about the nature and development of the repertory, and of the place held by Buxtehude within it. The picture that emerges is of a repertory that is far more beholden to Italian influence than has previously been appreciated, and one that is not dominated by any single figure

Romaria : choral music from Brazil by Gonville and Caius college( )

5 editions published in 2015 in Portuguese and Miscellaneous languages and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romaria - a word suggesting pilgrimage, crowds, and processions - evokes much of what is distinctive about modern Brazil - its mix of people, its vibrancy, its faith. This survey of modern Brazilian choral music reflects these qualities, as well as the natural wonders of this amazing land. Geoffrey Webber and his ever-adventurous choir sing both sacred and secular works dating from the 1950s to the present, in a program developed in conjunction with the University of Sao Paulo's music department. Founded in 1348, Caius College Choir is one of Britain's leading collegiate choirs and this is their eighth recording on Delphian

"Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece.
