The pieces brought together on this CD range widely, from ceremonial works associated with affairs of state to intimate compositions addressing moments of great personal significance. Two of the three pieces by Parry best exemplify this contrast: if I was glad – written for the coronation of Edward VII and premiered in chaotic circumstances – fits into the former category, ‘My soul, there is a country’ (from Songs of Farewell) – composed in the year of his death – belongs in the latter.

British chorus master Andrew McAnerney succeeds to the late Christopher Jackson as the new artistic director of the Studio de musique ancienne de Montreal. For his first recording with the Studio, McAnerney has chosen motets by Orlando di Lasso. McAnemey was raised in the British choral tradition and studied music at the University of Oxford. Since graduating, Andrew has enjoyed a varied musical career as a conductor, consort singer, soloist and arranger. In the domain of sacred music, di Lasso's motets are considered more original than his masses.

Andrew Tyson - Ravel & Scriabin: Piano Works (2017)  Music

After a first recording of Chopin's Preludes for Piano and the First Prize of the Géza Anda Competition in 2015, which allowed him to develop his career, the young American pianist Andrew Tyson designed a new program tailored to his needs: two sonatas, one Waltz Scriabine and Mirrors of Ravel. Andrew Tyson has chosen to bring together these two composers whose language seems to be far away but which nevertheless have many similarities, in particular their use of tone, certain harmonies and dissonances. Alexandre Scriabine and Maurice Ravel also lived in the same city, at the same time, without ever meeting: Debussy, Ravel and the French musical elite of the time considered their Russian colleagues as coarse and uneducated. Yet, listening to their music, even though their approach to piano and composition could not be any different, they use colors in the same way. For Andrew Tyson, "Ravel is a perfectionist of elegance, where every detail is calculated and shines like a crystal; Scriabin is like an erratic flame - passionate, disorderly, spontaneous and erotic."

There are two English Davises, both conductors: Colin and Andrew–no relation. Colin recorded a landmark Messiah which is still available on Philips at budget price. This one is another matter entirely. Andrew Davis certainly knows this music, and he hits the big moments with gusto. But Messiah is more than big moments, and despite an excellent cast of soloists, there's too little involvement with the music (especially from Kathleen Battle) in the arias and more intimate moments to make this a clear recommendation. It's not bad, but the competition is just that much better. –David Hurwitz
