Chapelle du Roi, Alistair Dixon (conductor)


'The new works are undoubtedly significant additions to the repertoire. On that count alone this recording is self-recommending. An even greater name among the new additions is that of Tallis … the predominant sonority is familiarly clear, transparent and assured … for the sake of the new pieces alone, lovers of this repertory will welcome this enthusiastically' (Gramophone)

'This is a beautifully conceived and exquisitely carried out program with much historical interest' (American Record Guide)

'You will never hear a more judiciously balanced, vocally better matched, nor technically more accomplished choral group than the 12-voice Brabant Ensemble. Founder/director Stephen Rice has assembled an exemplary company of voices aligned with repertoire that ideally suits the group's size and configuration. Combined with excellently recorded sound—from the Merton College Chapel venue favored by many choral ensembles—this production offers a program that's not only historically significant but that's worthy of repeated listening—intellectually involving, aesthetically pleasing, and emotionally engaging. How can you go wrong with that? Highly recommended!' (Classics Today)
With all our hearts and mouths is an English adaptation of Tallis’s superb motet Salvator mundi. Although the English text fits less comfortably with the music in places than the original Latin, Tallis’s dense counterpoint loses none of its impact.

With all our hearts and mouths est une adaptation anglaise du superbe motet Salvator mundi de Tallis. Même si le texte anglais va parfois moins bien avec la musique que l’original latin, le dense contrepoint de Tallis garde tout son impact.

extrait des notes rédigées par David Evans © 2009
Français: Hypérion

With all our hearts and mouths ist eine englischsprachige Bearbeitung von Tallis’ großartiger Motette Salvator mundi. Obwohl der englische Text nicht überall so gut auf die Musik passt wie der lateinische, bleibt Tallis’ dichte Kontrapunktik trotzdem genauso wirkungsvoll wie im Original.

Mae With all our hearts and mouths yn addasiad Saesneg o fotét gwych Tallis Salvator mundi. Er bod y testun Saesneg yn gweddu’n llai cyffyrddus i’r gerddoriaeth na’r Lladin gwreiddiol mewn mannau, nid yw gwrthbwynt dwys Tallis yn colli dim o’i effaith.
