Bliss composed The Enchantress in 1951, the year of his sixtieth birthday, for Kathleen Ferrier. The text is a free adaptation of the Second Idyll of Theocritus, made by Henry Reed, and well suited to Bliss’s love of classical Greek authors.
Meditations on a Theme by John Blow, from 1955, was written for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), the first in a number of commissions from the John Feeney Trust. Inspired by John Blow’s Coronation Anthems, the work is a set of variations on a Sinfonia from that collection, each variation reflecting the text of a verse from Psalm XXIII.
Described as a sacred cantata, Mary of Magdala was Bliss’s second Feeney Trust Commission, composed during 1962 and 1963. For a libretto, Bliss turned to Christopher Hassall, his collaborator on three previous works, including The Beatitudes. Bliss conducted the premiere at the Three Choirs Festival in 1963, and wrote in his programme note: ‘One of the loveliest stories in the New Testament is that in the 20th chapter of St John’s Gospel, telling of how Mary Magdalene, lingering at the sepulchre, was the first to see the risen Christ. She, supposing him to be the gardener.’
The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus give of their best under their former chief conductor Sir Andrew Davis, and the contributions from the soloists, Dame Sarah Connolly and James Platt, are outstanding. © Chandos

Jordi Savall - La musica, la vita, le incisioni

Pioveva a dirotto quella sera di ottobre nel Bugey, dove d’altronde piove spesso in quel periodo dell’anno. Era intorno a mezzanotte. Io e una cinquantina di altri fan ce ne stavamo lì ad aspettare in silenzio, al freddo e all’umido del Festival d’Ambronay. Poi, senza il minimo rumore, spuntò Jordi Savall, avvolto in un impermeabile bianco completamente fradicio, stile Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca. Stringeva a sé una cassa a forma di corpo umano, da cui estrasse, con gesti lenti, non una mitragliatrice, bensì una viola da gamba che prese a maneggiare e ad accordare con estrema cura. Ed ecco prodursi il miracolo.
