Editorial Reviews

It is easy to forget that our great English choral tradition was once silenced by Act of Parliament. The subsequent restoration of the monarchy in 1660 ushered in one of the finest periods of English music, and William Turner, in 1660 a precocious nine-year-old, went on to become one of the best-known composers and singers of his day. This disc presents a cross-section of his sacred music, including several premiere recordings.

William Turner, impressively long-lived for his era (1651-1740), is one of a trio of distinguished Restoration-period composers whose light has subsequently been eclipsed by the extraordinary genius of Henry Purcell. The other two contemporaries were John Blow and Pelham Humfrey, but of the three it is Turner who has so far received the least attention in terms of performance and recording. He was in fact a remarkable musical prodigy, judging by his appointment as Master of the Choristers at Lincoln Cathedral at the age of 16. This present recording, then, is an enterprising project to give him his due, and indeed there is some very fine music here.

The programme consists of a mixture of verse and full anthems, a choral Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, all framed by an imposing setting of the Te Deum and Jubilate. This latter pair of pieces forms a splendid work, with impressive choral passages accompanied by orchestra - here the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists - including trumpet parts, these finely taken here by the excellent Crispian Steele-Perkins and David Staff. Choral and orchestral passages are interspersed with sections for solo and concerted voices, with fine soprano-countertenor duets and terrific bass parts. It all sounds quite Purcellian - deliberately so, according to director Geoffrey Webber's excellent booklet notes - but it's different enough to be thoroughly enjoyable in its own right. Altogether it's an uplifting work as well as providing a most interesting comparison to the setting by Henry himself.
