William Hayes, an organist and a professor of music at Oxford, has been neglected among Handel's successors, and this fine release by the Choir of Keble College, Oxford and the historical-performance group Instruments of Time and Truth under Matthew Martin strongly suggests that the omission has been a major one. Hayes, 23 years younger, was clearly a follower of Handel and conducted his works on a number of occasions. A few of the anthems here reflect Handel's style, yet most of them look either forward or backward: there are aspects of the mid-century Italian and Viennese styles, and strong reminiscences of Purcell, the polyphony of the early 17th century, and even earlier Renaissance music. Hayes was clearly a talented organist, and you could sample the Organ Concerto in G major, an assured, elegant work even though Hayes did not have many models to work with. The English anthems and psalm settings are clear and attractive, whether Handelian or lighter and more galant in style. Most intriguing are the imposing excerpts from the oratorio The Fall of Jericho, which strongly suggest that this work needs a full performance pronto. Handelians and lovers of English music should not delay in hearing this, for it's going to rewrite some history books: Hayes was known not only in Oxford but across England, for several decades. A Voluntary by the Oxford organist and composer William Walond, even less known than Hayes, is included. The youthful choristers enunciate the texts clearly and seem to reflect the music's freshness, in its own time and ours.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
