Ola Gjeilo(b. 1978) : Ubi caritas – Schweizer JugendChor; Dominique Tille – YouTube

Ola Gjeilo Captioned 150x183 I've written about Ola Gjeilo's setting of 'Ubi Caritas' before (see: Ola Gjeilo with the CWU Chamber Choir: Ubi Caritas (1st version) | Saturday Chorale ) in the few years since Gjeilo first published it it's become very popular with choirs and deservedly so it's got a beautiful melody that starts by evoking plain chant that evolves almost imperceptibly into a wider and more modern use of harmonics. Even better it's a very accessible piece that can, and has been, easily be mastered by a good secondary school choir. The Schweizer JugendChor (Swiss Youth Choir) performed it on May 18th 2013 during the first lap of the first round of the International Chamber Choir Competition Marktoberdorf 2013. You can hear them singing a somewhat shortened version of it below under the direction of their conductor Dominique Tille. Enjoy :-).

Henry Purcell (1659-1695): I was glad – KammerChor Saarbrücken; Georg Grün

May 31, 2013

This week's entry in my series dealing with Purcell's religious music is somewhat different from normal in that it features a live performance of one of his works. Although I've written about 'I was glad' before I think that this performance by the KammerChor Saarbrücken (Saarbrucken Chamber Choir) conducted by their founder Georg Grün given on May 18th 2013 as part of their entry for the first lap of the first round of the International Chamber Choir Competition Marktoberdorf 2013 is of such high quality that a little repetition of material can be forgiven. Grün founded the choir in 1990 and they are, to my mind, one of the best choirs singing in Germany today – have a listen to them singing below and see if you don't agree with me. Enjoy :-).
