Hi-Res Booklet
Twelve sibyls, ancient psychics, became during the Middle-Ages the counterpoints of the Prophets, announcing since the beginning of time (2nd-7th centuries) the arrival of a child who will become the Savior of the World. The emergence of those characters and of these strange and mysterious texts resulted of the fascination the Renaissance resolutely showed towards Antiquity. The Sibyls were even portrayed by Michelangelo on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. And it is perhaps while he was in Rome as Chapel Master of St John in the Lateran that Roland de Lassus met them and drew from their figures - with names already so dreamlike and evocative of marvelous lands such as Sibylla Delphica, Persica, Erythrea, Cumana, Hellespontiaca, Libyca … – the inspiration for this collection. The Prophetiae were composed somewhere between Rome, Antwerp and Munich, within a short period of disappearance (1554-1555) of Lassus, during which no one knows with certainty what became of the composer. From the litanic undulations of the Cheruvikon preparing the Communion and turning the assembly of the faithful into the living images of the choir of the six-winged angels, to the words of Gabriel in the Acathist, carrying the embryo of life which will change the face of the World, to the hypnotic trance of the flamboyant Polyeleos, Byzantine music tells the tale of the orthodox conception of the Mystery. The figure of the “unseizable” God shows an immense humility in devotion, comprehending the mystery beyond humanity’s reach, rejecting the temptation of simplification and explanation, and therefore the grave temptation of anthropomorphizing of the divine. The strength of orthodox faith translates into an acceptance, a welcoming of the inconceivable, of what necessarily escapes Mankind, thus acknowledging human life as simple creatures on the surface of the world. The liturgy is sung, never spoken, lectured. A splendid recording mixing these these two amazing cultures, to be discovered. © Paraty

Choirs (sacred) - Released September 17, 2021 | Le Bricoleur

The music of Hildegard of Bingen has come down to us in only two sources. One of these is the manuscript that the German mystic had sent to the monks of Villers Abbey in Brabant. Today it is housed at the Abbey of Dendermonde (Belgium). This album by the Psallentes ensemble, specialized in plainchant, is the first part of planned complete recording of the Dendermonde Codex. © Le Bricoleur

This recording came to fruition thanks to nearly 25 years’ worth of efforts. In 1997, Marcel Pérès and his Ensemble Organum began a simultaneous exploration of the Mozarabic rite (the liturgical chant peculiar to the Christians living in Spain at the time of Arab rule) and of the Samaa spiritual practice of Morocco. Setting aside the theological differences between the two faiths, the artists discovered a great deal of kinship between the two forms of musical expression. A veritable utopia, the idea for this recording then suggested itself: through music, to regain the lost accord of human brotherhood. © harmonia mundi

Hi-Res Booklet
Halfway between the style of Heinrich Schütz and the more modern style of Buxtehude and Johann Sebastian Bach, the music of the glorious unknown Augustin Pfleger (1635-1686) is fascinating in many ways, starting with a powerful spirituality. The author of Concerts spirituels and numerous cantatas relating the life of Christ, Pfleger's work is religious first and foremost. Martin Wahlberg has drawn from this source to design this programme, whose connecting thread is the life and passion of Christ. It takes the listener through some significant works.The programme offered here by Martin Wahlberg, his musicians and his singers, is a valuable testimony to the practices of Northern Europe. Based on Pfleger's religious cantatas, it has been articulated to form a dramatic whole through the use of regional instruments that were very fashionable in the past and forgotten today, such as the ancient psalter inherited from the Middle Ages, a positive organ and a consort of viols. Recorded in 2018 in Norway, it is a sonic panorama of Baroque Scandinavia and seems to continue the tradition of previous centuries. © François Hudry / Qobuz
