The Motets of William Byrd form a remarkable compendium of Latin sacred music, all the more so for being the work of a dissident Catholic composer working in a staunchly Protestant environment. Dating from the second half of the sixteenth-century, a period of intense religious turmoil, the Motets were written for private use in clandestine Catholic households, and published in three collections during the reign of Elizabeth I (despite her official opposition) with two further compilations under James I.

Handel's retelling of the Christmas and Easter stories is as popular now as it was over two and a half centuries ago, from the heartfelt simplicity of 'I know that my Redeemer liveth' to the unsurpassable grandeur of the 'Hallelujah' chorus. On a high-definition Blu-Ray disc, this performance gains additional vibrancy and clarity.

Set in Egypt, Massenet's drama 'Thais' (1894) traces the ill-fated attempt of the monk, Athanaël, to rescue the soul of the celebrated Alexandrian courtesan, Thaïs. Though she is presently living with his wealthy friend Nicias, Athanaël persuades her to renounce her way of life and riches, but as she dies in the desert in a state of grace, he realises he has succumbed to her worldly charms and begs God for mercy. Renée Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan Thaïs in Massenet’s romantic tragedy set in fourth century Alexandria and the Egyptian desert. The timeless struggle between earthly desire and spiritual redemption finally destroys the resolve of the monk Athanaël (Thomas Hampson), just as the newly penitent Thaïs ascends heavenward. Jesús López-Cobos gives a masterly performance of Massenet’s sensuous score, with concert master David Chan contributing a ravishing ‘Méditation’.

Of course, members of the distinguished avant-garde sax quartet Rova and the raucous avant jazz trio Nels Cline Singers (in which nobody sings, in case you wonder) have intermingled before on a few occasions – the Ascension project being one. Still, to bring the two together (and their audiences) and to write a repertoire especially for this short-lived septet had to require some guts and determination. And it was effort well invested, since The Celestial Septet is a thrilling record, and one of Rova's most artistically successful collaborations. Recorded in 2008 on two separate occasions, the CD features five works ranging between two and 25 minutes in duration. Strangely, both the shortest and longest piece are Larry Ochs compositions.

Bis Ende der 80er Jahre, also während der ersten vier Jahre und ersten vier Langspielplatten von Element of Crime, war „Take Me To The River“, der Al-Green-Klassiker auf der LP „Basically Sad“ von 1986, das einzige nicht selbstgeschriebene Lied, das wir veröffentlichten. Das lag wohl daran, dass wir damals eine junge und zerstrittene Band waren und schwer damit beschäftigt, unter Hauen und Stechen und ständigem Veröffentlichungsdruck zu einem eigenen Stil zu finden.
