And here are the most recent new releases from Hyperion …
Christopher Glynn continues his fascinating Schubert in English series on Signum with a fourth instalment. There are twenty-one songs here, among them many stalwarts of the repertoire, and the singers revelling in Jeremy Sams's thought-provoking new translations are Rowan Pierce and Roderick Williams.
Something of a new departure for Collegium Records finds John Rutter conducting the Manchester Camerata in a programme of his own orchestral arrangements entitled Classical Tranquillity: eleven tracks of luxurious escapism visiting the works of Bach, Handel, Delius and others.
Two new releases from the National Symphony Orchestra of The Kennedy Center in Washington this month, both with Gianandrea Noseda at the helm. Beethoven Symphonies Nos 6 & 8 is the third release in an already-impressive cycle, while the Five Sinfonias of George Walker are now brought together onto a single album.
Conducting the London Symphony Orchestra, Gianandrea Noseda continues a further cycle with a new recording for LSO Live of Prokofiev's Symphony No 5, the composer's breakthrough symphony here captured in a live recording from the Barbican in 2022.
A flurry of new releases from Signum Classics brings us A Most Marvellous Party (with Noël Coward and friends) from three artists surely at the height of their powers—soprano Mary Bevan, tenor Nicky Spence and pianist Joseph Middleton—plus a diverse array of Christmas fayre: Patrick Hawes's The Nativity (performed by Voce and their conductor Mark Singleton), Noël (the Armonico Consort), Nova! Nova! Joy to the world! (the Hertfordshire Chorus), and The Christmas album (the Phoenix Chorale—their first recording under director Christopher Gabbitas): most certainly something for everyone.
LSO Live has put together an impressive set of Elgar Symphonies and Marches which also includes the Cello Concerto (with soloist Felix Schmidt) and the 'Enigma' Variations. These archive performances—primarily from 1988 and 2001—feature conductors Sir Colin Davis (the three Symphonies) and Barry Tuckwell (the Marches), with appearances also from Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos and Sir Antonio Pappano.
For their own label The Choir of King's College Cambridge has recorded a new mini album featuring six Orchestral carols by John Rutter, a mixture of original works and fabulous arrangements. Recorded amid the glories of King's College Chapel, enviable accompaniment comes from the Britten Sinfonia and Daniel Hyde conducts.
A third instalment in The Choir of St John's College Cambridge's Advent Live mini series on Signum draws together highlights from the annual broadcasts of 2020, 2021 and 2022—conductor Andrew Nethsingha's final bite at that particular cherry before decamping to Westminster Abbey. As ever the programme is replete with the unexpected.
Jeremy Filsell returns with The Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, Fifth Avenue, New York for a programme of Sacred Works by William Byrd. Marking four hundred years since the composer's death in 1523, this re-creation of the Catholic Mass for the Feast of Corpus Christi is centred on the timeless Mass for four voices. And two further albums on Signum explore the fascinating organ works and performing skills of Naji Hakim, the composer taking the console of the impressive Stahlhuth-Jann organ of St Martin's, Dudelange, in Luxembourg for a second instalment of Hakim plays Hakim and being joined by soprano Anne Warthmann (and, variously, clarinet and flute) for Anne Warthmann sings Naji Hakim.
