PAUL McCREESH AND GABRIELI CONSORT NEVER FAIL TO PLEASE!

There are 13 selections on this recording spanning some 600 years, although it is heavy on the 20th century, eight in all with composers John Tavener, Igor Stravinsky, Giles Swayne , Herbert Howells, Thomas Ades,James McMillan, Arnold Bax and Henryk Gorecki. Others are one 19th century Edwin Grey; one 16th century Giovanni Palestrina; two 15th century Josquin Des Pres, Jean Mouton; and one 14th century anonymous. It's quite amazing how all of this ties together in one glorious theme-centered recording, but it does and very nicely, if you please. It all reveals very neatly the reverence and rapture that the Virgin Mary has inspired in music over the centuries.

This recording delineates from European composers from Josquin to Ades to explore music which honors the Virgin Mary, the most venerated personage of all Catholic Saints, and the inspiration for much devotional music throughout the ages.

The program revolves around the main events in the life of Mary. Performed a cappella in the gloriously revereberant Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral, its opening 'A Hymn to the Mother of God' by Tavener, makes full use of the acoustic space which allows the listener to be surrounded by the energizing harmonies. Moreover, the cathedral's expansive atmosphere enhances the effect of the mingling sonorities of Gile Swayne's exuberant setting of the 'Magnificat'.

Tavener's opening selection is followed by Josquin's setting of 'Ave Maria,Virgo Serena', a noteworthy piece in which Paul McCreesh avoids any sense of haste thus creating a beguiling surface stillness.
