9780193368415: English Church Music, Volume 1: Anthems and Motets: Vocal score (Oxford Choral Classics Collections)

Oxford Choral Classics: English Church Music assembles in two volumes around 100 of the finest examples of English sacred choral music of the past five centuries. The first volume, dedicated to anthems and motets, presents both favourite and lesser-known works, from the exceptional Renaissance polyphony of Taverner, Tallis, and Byrd, through the Restoration led by Purcell, to the glorious works of the great nineteenth- and twentieth-century composers, including Wesley, Elgar, Stanford, Vaughan Williams, and Howells. The volume contains a number of more substantial works, including Mendelssohn's Hear my prayer, Stainer's I saw the Lord, and Naylor's Vox dicentis: Clama, as well as a wonderful selection of shorter pieces, from Gibbons's O Lord, in thy wrath to Walton's Set me as a seal upon thine heart. With the second companion volume of canticles and responses, this bipartite collection presents a comprehensive survey of English sacred music at its best.

About the Author:

For 30 years Robert King has enjoyed a busy career as a conductor, festival director, and editor. He read music at Cambridge, where in 1980 he founded the period instrument orchestra and choir The King's Consort. TKC has since toured across the globe, made almost 100 recordings, and won many international awards. King has conducted many of the leading orchestras and chamber choirs of Europe and North America, as well as operas in Japan, Britain, France, Germany, and Spain. He has written and presented for the BBC, been artistic director of music festivals in Sweden, Germany, and the UK, and contributed to the scores of Hollywood films including Shrek 2, Pirates of the Caribbean, Flushed Away, and The Da Vinci Code. Renowned as an expert in Baroque and Classical music, King has created performing editions of more than 100 works, which are used by professional and amateur performers across the world. John Rutter was born in London in 1945 and studied music at Clare College, Cambridge. His compositions embrace choral, orchestral, and instrumental music, and he has edited or co-edited various choral anthologies, including four Carols for Choirs volumes with Sir David Willcocks and the Oxford Choral Classics series. From 1975 to 1979 he was Director of Music at Clare College, and in 1981 he formed his own choir, the Cambridge Singers. He now divides his time between composition and conducting and is sought after as a guest conductor for the world's leading choirs and orchestras. John Rutter's music has been widely recorded and is available on many record labels including Universal, Naxos, and Hyperion. The Cambridge Singers have recorded many of John Rutter's works on the Collegium Records label.

Review:

The creation of new editions throughout has allowed for a uniform 'look', which is an aesthetic plus; the editorial practices for historical literature seem to strike a fair balance between scholarly responsibility and practicality . . . The collection of brief but pithy editorial comments on each piece that concludes the volume is informative and admirable, ranging from biography to source information and musical analysis. * Alan Lewis, Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians (US), November 2010 * Here is the long-awaited English church anthem volume of the Oxford Choral Classics series under John Rutter's series editorship, and well worth waiting for. If much of the selection is familiar, there is a convenience (as with the previous European Sacred Music volume) in having so much material in one volume, well edited and well presented. But there is also much that is not so familiar, such as Elgar's They are at rest, Hadley's My song is love unknown, and Purcell's Let mine eyes run down . . . Orchestrations are available for four of the anthems, and continuo parts with figured bass for the seven pieces by Boyce, Greene and Purcell. There are English singing translations for almost all of the Latin texts and a helpful commentary on each piece. This volume should become as indispensable as its predecessors in the series. * James L Montgomery, Church Music Quarterly, December 2010 * Say goodbye to falling-apart copy woes, throw away your tatty Tallises and dog-eared Stanfords with this spanking new volume from OUP. The answer to many a choir librarian's prayers, this anthology of fifty-one of the best-known and most popular Anglican anthems is a complementary volume to the popular European Sacred Music, and deserves to become just as successful. John Rutter has handed over the editorial reins to Robert King, who makes a thorough and dedicated job of it, re-editing all the pre-20th-century works from original sources, inventing fine new translations of the handful of Latin works, and mixing attention to scholarly detail with practical nous. * Music Teacher, December 2010 *
