This month's new releases

Our Record of the Month for July 2016 celebrates Hyperion's association with Westminster Abbey Choir and its distinguished Master of the Choristers James O'Donnell with a new recording of Taverner's Mater Christi sanctissima & Western Wynde Masses—two of the seminal works from the reign of Henry VIII. The early Moszkowski Piano Concerto—its score long presumed lost, its very existence known only to a few—makes volume 68 of our Romantic Piano Concerto series an especially desirable acquisition for all pianophiles. Ludmil Angelov and Vladimir Kiradjiev (the soloist and conductor responsible for the work's first performance in modern times) here make their Hyperion debuts, joining the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in this premiere recording.

Two contrasting vocal recitals offer fascinating perspectives on love, loss and desire six centuries apart. The Orlando Consort continues to explore the music of the fourteenth century with Machaut A burning heart, while it is a particular pleasure to welcome soprano Sophie Bevan to the label in a wonderful late-Romantic programme of Reger Songs. She is partnered by Malcolm Martineau.

Linn Records welcomes back the sonorous viols of Phantasm for a new recording of Dowland Lachrimae, a work as pivotal in the history of music as it remains moving to this day. New to the Linn catalogue are two more of the group's earlier recordings for Avie: the Five-Part and Six-Part Consorts by John Jenkins.

For Linn again, the pioneering Scottish Ensemble has fused a programme of Works for strings by Debussy & Takemitsu, two sound worlds of surprising synergy and well worth exploring. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra tackles Samuel Adler's Symphony No 6; the recording—also the work's first ever performance—being conducted by maestro José Serebrier and also including Adler's virtuosic Cello Concerto.

This month sees two divergent releases from LSO Live. The London Symphony Chorus directs its massed voices towards the Rachmaninov Vespers, one of the greatest contributions to Russian sacred music of all time. Simon Halsey conducts. Steve Reich's Clapping music & other works gives centre-stage to the LSO Percussion Ensemble in a riot of rhythmical expression.

David Goode has recorded a second album in his Complete Bach Organ Works series, the varied programme drawing delicate intricacies in sound from the organ of Trinity College Cambridge.
