Quote from: vandermolen on April 14, 2022, 02:47:14 AMI rather liked this LP (I have a CD version as well)Although they are both on Supraphon and I've owned them for years/decades, I've only just realised that they are not the same performance! Actually I've realised that I do own Smetacek's recording on CD as well (there's also a recording on Naxos).
Quote from: foxandpeng on March 17, 2023, 02:39:05 PMHi all... apologies if this is the wrong place for this question...Might I tap your not-inconsiderable knowledge to assist a novice?It's pretty obvious that you folk have a wide and deep grasp of early music (earlier than I know anything about), that comes from a 'spiritual' perspective. I really very much enjoy an element of what for me would be best described as 'night music' - music with a reflective or meditative nature, probably religious in character, for relaxation in the small hours. Polyphony, maybe? I don't know what I don't know, tbh. I enjoy some Gregorian chant, plainsong, the likes of Rautavaara's Vigilia... but could do with some recs. I'm not Catholic or Orthodox, so some of the masses do little for me, but the sound world works for me. I think I like some of the psalm settings better than excursi on RC dogma. Very happy to be led, however.Do you have any pointers for me?
Quote from: Papy Oli on March 18, 2023, 12:51:32 AMThese two might appeal:- Arvo Part - Kanon Pokajanen (ECM)- Tallis - Spem in Alium, Salve Intemerata (Summerly, Naxos)
Quote from: Jo498 on March 18, 2023, 01:40:53 AMIf something appropriate for the liturgical season: Lamentations (choral, also called Lamentationes Hieremiae Prophetae or "Tenebrae" or "Tenebres" because the churches were darkened in these services during Holy Week) by Tallis, Lassus and others.
Quote from: DaveF on March 18, 2023, 02:52:25 AMI've probably mentioned this previously on this thread (too lazy to check) but my no.1 favourite bit of Passiontide music (even more so than the Bach Passions) is Buxtehude's Membra Jesu nostri. On paper it sounds unremittingly grim - 7 short cantatas, each a meditation on a different part of the body of the crucified Christ - but it covers a great range of emotion - grim, yes, but predominantly reflective, gentle and tender. (It's a concert programmer's nightmare, incidentally, since 6 of the 7 cantatas are 2 violins & continuo, whereas the 6th, Ad cor, uses a quartet of viols instead.)The Sixteen do it well.
