Let us remind the reader that The Queen's Six is a six-part, male voice a capella ensemble based in Windsor Castle, United Kingdom, living and working within the castle walls. There are worse places to work… Drawn from the ranks of the Choir of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, they keep a busy international schedule of concert and recording engagements. Their repertoire spans sacred and secular music from the Middle Ages to the present day. This new release covers Christmas carols and songs, mainly from the English-speaking realm – Vaughan Williams, Holst, Sullivan, Jacques, Tallis, the more jazzy Richard Madden and Thomas Hewitt Jones, and even Henry VIII who, between killing two wives and within these very Windsor walls, sometimes dabbled in music-making – but also a few from abroad, in particular the famous international lore by Praetorius (Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen) and the ubiquitous Silent Night by Franz Gruber and Jingle Bells by James Lord Pierpont, as well as some Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn. The impeccable vocals of The Queen’s Six works miracles, both in the “serious” repertoire and in the more popular works, here presented in a highly polished polyphonic setting. © SM/Qobuz

The 73-year-old British mezzo-soprano has been a magnificent singer throughout her sparkling career: and she still is! As proof, take this album full of treats, with Lieders, melodies, songs and romances (in German, French, English and Russian respectively), which runs from the romanticism of the early 19th Century to the cabaret  - or the nightclub - and to the music-hall stage. She sings with a beautiful voice, but does not seek to hide her age at all: here, it only lends her a venerable air: her voice has aged like a fine wine. Direct renditions of Brahms, Schubert and Tchaikovsky mingle with Britten at his most facetious and populist; the lightest and most poetic Falla; and American cocktails à la Las Vegas. Stylishly accompanied by Simon Lepper, this grande dame's album inspires a sort of reverence. But we can be assured that it won't be her last - after all, she's only 73! © SM/Qobuz

Born in 1927 in South Africa, the British composer John Joubert is some 90 years of age as we speak; while he may not be famous on the other side of the Channel, he is so acclaimed in Great Britain that for his 80th birthday in 2007, his Joubertiades resonated around the entire country, in particular with the numerous – and sumptuous – English choirs and their extraordinary quality. In fact most of his works are intended for choirs, but that didn’t stop him from also writing two symphonies, five concertos, half a dozen operas and a beautiful collection of chamber music. The present recording was made for the master’s 90th birthday by the Wells Cathedral Choir and its choirmaster, Matthew Owens. The name Missa Wellensis (2013) indeed suggests that the mass was specifically written for this choir, which is also the case for St Mark Passion (2015) and Locus iste (2013) on the album, proof that the multiplication of great choirs in a country automatically triggers the creation of a wide, very wide range of new works. One could only wish for the same in France… Regarding Joubert’s style, it follows the footsteps of Elgar, while developing its own language, drawing from Anglican liturgy, a few shades of jazz here and there, and a few recent British choral composers such as John Tavener. © SM/Qobuz
