Sunday Playlist: Fauré Requiem – Escolania Escorial

0
May 27, 2012

This week's playlist is a live performance of Fauré's requiem recorded at the «Monasterio del Escorial» (Escorial Monastery) on April 11th 2006 (they were so pleased with this performance that they went on to record it again and published it on CD) the soloist was Fran Braojos and the conductor and organist was Javier M. Carmena.  Apart from the famous 'Pie Jesu' (sung beautifully here by Fran Braojos) the versions of Fauré's Requiem that most people know are the versions performed by far larger choirs with full orchestral accompaniment. This far more intimate setting is very beautiful and deserves to be far better known. Enjoy :-).

April 30, 2012

I've written about Dawson's spiritual 'Soon ah Will be Done'  before (see: Un petit peu de gospel… Le Chœur d’Enfants Amazing Grace : Soon Ah Will Be Done ), it's one of my favourite spirituals. It's sung here by the Moscow "Debut" Boys Choir at a concert given in Moscow Immaculate Conception Catholic Cathedral on March 18th of this year. Enjoy :-)

W.A. Mozart: O du eselhafter Martin – Tölzer Knabenchor

0
April 28, 2012

The boys of the Tölzer Knabenchor singing the revised G major version, K. 560b of Mozart's canon 'O du eselhafter Peierl'. The original to this  was directed at the baritone Johann Nepomuk Peyerl but Mozart revised it to give the names of Martin and Jakob. It's often performed in  bowdlerised versions. But the original (and highly scatological) lyrics are easily found on Wikipedia amongst other places. Enjoy :-)
