With Missa Faulte d'argent & Motets by Jean Mouton, Stephen Rice and The Brabant Ensemble celebrate the quincentenary of the composer's death. Their earlier album of works by Mouton was described as 'gorgeous' (BBC Music Magazine) and its successor is every bit as rewarding, confirming the distinction and originality of this near contemporary of Josquin.
The ongoing series dedicated to choice selections of our all-time favourite recordings—ones you might possibly have missed? This time: Remembrance from St Paul's Cathedral Choir (‘fine listening’—Gramophone), Liszt's Troisième Année de pèlerinage & other late piano works from Cédric Tiberghien (‘seriously classy Liszt, encompassed by a recording that allows every detail of Tiberghien’s playing to resonate’—BBC Record Review), and The Art of Melancholy – Songs by John Dowland from Iestyn Davies and Thomas Dunford (‘this is Dowland to treasure’—Gramophone). If you don’t know them already, a track from each is included on our monthly sampler which is free to download.
New from Signum Classics this month we have the latest in Malcolm Martineau's indefatigable survey of French song. Performing The Complete Songs of Henri Duparc he is here joined by soprano Dame Sarah Connolly, tenor Nicky Spence, and baritones William Thomas and Huw Montague Rendall.
A debut Signum album from The Heath Quartet presents String Quartets by Alban Berg, Anton Webern and Arnold Schoenberg, three works written in the years 1905 to 1909. For Schoenberg's No 2, this sought-after quartet is joined by soprano Carolyn Sampson, a major work complemented by smaller compositions by two of his pupils.
