Retrospectiva 1987 – 1995
Música polifónica del período barroco-renacentista

Com instrumentos de época – on period instruments

Repostagem com novos e atualizados links.

El Ensemble Vocal e Instrumental De Profundis se formó el 17 de abril de 1987 a iniciativa de su Directora la Mtra. Cristina García Banegas. La música polifónica del período barroco-renacentista ha sido su repertorio más trabajado, incluyendo grandes obras de Bach, como la Misa en Si menor y la Pasión Según San Mateo. Asimismo interpreta obras de carácter sacro y profano de los siglos XV al XVII de origen europeo y de la América colonial.

Las ejecuciones respetan las versiones originales con el acompañamiento de instrumentos de época, siguiendo las más fieles y actuales concepciones de los investigadores y estudiosos de su repertorio.

La trascendente labor musical realizada desde entonces es un continuo aporte para la cultura de Uruguay y de América Latina.

Este disco es la primera recopilación de la historia fonográfica del Ensemble Vocal e Instrumental «De Profundis». Al editar en CD un material que, por razones estrictamente circunstanciales, fue siempre presentado al público en cassette, se pretende a su vez realzar el significado que cada uno de estos fonogramas tuvo en la historia artística del coro en un soporte más duradero y fiel.

La selección de obras que aqui se presenta ilustra la trayectoria del Ensemble casi desde sus comienzos cuando en 1989 – a tan solo dos años de su fundación y a un año de lo que sería su primera gira internacional – «De Profundis» concreta con IFU (Industrias Fonográficas del Uruguay) la primera grabación digital enteramente realizada en el Uruguay. Se trata de «Autores Españoles del Renacimiento» (junio, 1989), una colección de obras maestras de la polifonía española de Sebastián de Vivanco en primera grabación mundial.

Junto con «Autores Españoles…» en 1989 el Ensemble graba muchas de las obras que figuran en «Autores Latinoamericanos Coloniales» aunque estas tomas jamás fueron editadas. Es en 1991 que Cristina García Banegas siente que el grupo ha madurado interpretativamente estas obras y decide volver a grabarlas así como agregar material nuevo adquirido durante ese lapso. De este modo se conforma finalmente la edición de la colección de villancicos latinoamericanos de los siglos XVI al XVIII que tanto caracteriza al repertorio actual del grupo.

En el mismo período del año 1991 se graba «Homenaje a Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla», un volumen dedicado a la polifonía sacra en la Nueva España a través de este magnífico compositor que fuera Maestro de Capilla en la Catedral de Puebla, México entre 1622 y 1664.

El 26 de julio de 1991 «De Profundis» presenta un concierto en la Catedral Metropolitana dedicado a autores suizos con los auspicios de la Embajada de Suiza en el Uruguay. Adicionalmente, se lleva a cabo el registro del concierto en vivo que luego se editaría bajo el título «700 años de la Confederación Helvética» y que se transformaría a su vez en el testimonio de los actos conmemorativos en nuestro país del VII centenario de la Confederación.

Pedro Bermúdez, de origen granadino, uno de los más notables polifonistas del primer siglo de dominio español en el Nuevo Mundo, llegó a América luego de haber sido maestro de capilla suplente, junto a Francisco Guerrero, en la Catedral de Sevilla. A finales de 1596 embarcó hacia el virreinato del Perú y el 10 de septiembre de 1597 fue nombrado maestro de capilla de la Catedral del Cusco, en sustitución de Gutierre Fernández Hidalgo. A partir de 1600 tomó posesión del magisterio de capilla de la Catedral de Guatemala y posteriormente de la Catedral de Puebla de los Ángeles en México.

El legado musical de Pedro Bermúdez que ha perdurado hasta nuestros días está conformado exclusivamente por obras con textos en latín. Todas, excepto una, se encuentran en los libros de polifonía de la Catedral de Guatemala. Algunas de ellas aparecen duplicadas en varios libros de la Catedral de Puebla. Su lenguaje musical se apega al de la polifonía clásica del siglo XVI, pero presenta ciertos elementos rítmicos, armónicos y melódicos que apuntan hacia la nueva práctica del XVII.

Tomás Luis de Victoria – Officium Hebdomadae Sanctae, for 3-8 voices (1585)

wqy6p5Officium Hebdomadae Sanctae
Tomás Luis de Victoria (Spain, 1548-1611)

Repostagem com novo e atualizado link.

Also notable is the serene emotion of each of the pieces that form his Officium Hebdomadae Sanctae of 1585, a collection of motets and lamentations linked to the Holy Week Catholic celebrations. (Wikipedia)

According to Gustave Reese Victoria’s passions were interpreted in the Sistine Chapel for over 300 years and “have achieved greater distinction than any other polyphonic versions of the Latin texts”

Os ofícios litúrgicos da Semana Santa e Páscoa, como compostos pelo espanhol Tomas Luis de Victoria, quando ele passou um ano em Roma. As Lamentações e até mesmo as Paixões estão incluídas. Um trabalho colossal por um dos maiores polifonistas.

Se acreditarmos no encarte, dez anos de pesquisa acadêmica precederam as gravações; questões como a quantidade de cantores, a organização interna dos trabalhos, e se deve ou não utilizar instrumentos tinham que ser resolvidas a fim de restaurar ao máximo possível as intenções originais do compositor.

Tomás Luis de Victoria (Spain, 1548-1611): The Mystery of the Cross – The Sixteen

2450pa8The Mystery of the Cross
Tomás Luis de Victoria – The Sixteen

Repostagem com novo e atualizado link.

“…music Christophers was born to conduct.”
BBC Radio Three, Record Review

“This is what recording should be about…excellent performances and recorded sound…beautiful and moving.”
Gramophone

Estudioso, místico, sacerdote, cantor, organista e compositor – seis pessoas em uma só – é por esse motivo, simplesmente, que Victoria é o compositor mais marcante do Renascimento. Ele dedicou sua vida à igreja, e as suas obras revelam uma paixão sincera de tal forma que há momentos, durante sua execução, que nos sentimos quase esmagados pela sua intensidade. Esta série de Victoria pretende mostrar não só a profunda emoção sentida no período da Quaresma, mas também sua capacidade de ser alegremente inventivo e altamente sensual, como no seu tratamento de textos de “O Cântico dos Cânticos”. Harry Christophers

Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611): Missa Vidi Speciosam – Motetes

kbufbr‘Splendid music, splendidly performed’ (Gramophone)

‘Flawlessly produced’
(The Daily Telegraph)

Repostagem com novo e atualizado link.

Almost all Victoria’s surviving works were printed in his lifetime; many of his motets were reprinted as many as six times. Of the few works that survive only in manuscript some were wrongly attributed to him by Pedrell at the beginning of the twentieth century. The four-part Ave Maria, perhaps rightly, continues to be accepted as Victoria’s, though it has to be noted that Pedrell first printed it in 1913 and its source remains obscure.

Victoria set the Hymn Ave maris stella twice and published one version in 1581 and this second one in 1600. Alternate verses are sung to plainsong (in one of the many variants of this memorable tune) and the polyphony paraphrases and elaborates it. Ave maris stella is the Hymn at First Vespers on Feasts of the Blessed Virgin.

Ne timeas, Maria, published in 1572 and reprinted several times in subsequent years, is an antiphon at Second Vespers of the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, published in 1572 and reprinted several times in subsequent years, is a prayer for mercy and help for the people, the clergy and for women. It is the Magnificat antiphon at First Vespers for Marian Feasts.

In 1592 Victoria published his Missae … liber secundus and in it is a Mass based on Vidi speciosam. Like its model this Mass is for six-part choir (SSATTB); it is particularly concise, at times declamatory and homophonic—especially in the Gloria and Credo. Victoria begins his Kyrie with the first phrase of the music of the motet with hardly any variation except that he reverses the appearance of the vocal groups, TTB being followed by the SSA group. The Christe for SSAT only is a reworking of the motet’s music at ‘circumdabant eam’. The second Kyrie is based on the motet section ‘Et sicut dies verni’.

The Gloria is a mixture of free homophonic writing mixed with derivations from the first half of the motet until at ‘Qui tollis peccata mundi’ Victoria uses the motet’s second half opening ‘Quae est ista’. Near the Gloria’s end triple time is introduced for ‘Quoniam tu solus Sanctus. Tu solus Dominus’, balancing the similar triple time at ‘Domine Deus, Agnus Dei’ just before the ending of the first half. The Gloria ends with ‘in gloria Dei Patris. Amen’ to music based on the phrase ‘et lilia convallium’ in the motet.
The Credo is concisely written, traditionally so because of its wordiness. Like the Gloria it mixes short syllabic phrases with quotations and rewriting of motifs and sections of the motet model. At ‘Crucifixus’ there is a long passage for the high voices (SSAT) only. The rare repetition ‘Et iterum, et iterum’ is set to the motet’s music for ‘et lilia, et lilia’. Like the end of the Gloria, the Credo’s ‘Amen’ makes use of the flowing phrases of ‘convallium’.

The Sanctus begins with the Vidi speciosam opening music (SSA followed by TTB) and, as so often with Victoria, he breaks into triple time for ‘gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis’. The Benedictus (SATT) has its own ‘Hosanna in excelsis’ for six voices to a rewriting of ‘Et sicut dies verni’.

Finally, there is just one setting of the Agnus Dei (ending with ‘dona nobis pacem’ by Victoria, for seven-part choir (SSAATTB). The second alto follows the first soprano in a canon ad diapente, at the fifth below. The Agnus Dei makes only minimal use of the motet model. Despite the independence of the voices in this richly polyphonic ending, the treatment is very syllabic; one could hardly call the few flourishes melismata.

Tomás Luiz de Victoria was born in 1548 in Avila, birthplace of St Teresa. Just as she seems to personify the religious ethos of sixteenth-century Spain (the good side of it, at least), so Victoria came to embody the best of the Spanish character in music. As a youth he learnt his art as a chorister at the Cathedral of Avila. So promising was he that he was sent to Rome at seventeen years of age, patronized by Philip II and by the Church, to study at the Jesuit’s Collegium Germanicum.

Victoria’s musical career in Rome brought him into contact with Palestrina and the innumerable singers, organists and composers from all over Europe who were active in the chapels and churches of that great city at the very time when Catholicism regained confidence, new vitality and disciplined reform. The young Spanish priest was soon publishing his compositions in sumptuous editions (even Palestrina was jealous).

The success of his Roman years did not prevent Victoria from yearning for a quiet life in Spain. After his publications of 1585 (including the famous set of Holy Week music) he achieved his desire and returned to take up the position of Chaplain and Chapelmaster at the Royal Convent of the Barefoot Nuns of St Clare in Madrid, effectively the home and chapel of Philip II’s sister, the Dowager Empress Maria. There he ended his days producing less and less after 1600 and nothing, so far as we know, after the publication in 1605 of the great Office of the Dead, the Requiem for the Empress who died in 1603. Victoria died in 1611. He had turned down offers from Seville and Saragossa; he had visited Rome during the period 1592–94, supervising the printing of his works and attending Palestrina’s funeral. In 1595 he returned to Madrid and stayed.

The motet O magnum mysterium (published in 1572) has been a favourite of choirs ever 2przh9vsince the revival of Victoria’s music eighty years ago. Although the original publication entitles it In Circuncisione Domini, its text is taken from a responsory of Christmas Matins and its use has always been as a Christmas motet. One of Victoria’s most endearing creations, it unfolds serenely, richly warm when it expresses the wonder that even the animals behold the Infant in the manger. Then a wonderful hush as Victoria musically caresses ‘O beata Virgo’. The final ‘Alleluia’ dances in triple time and then, with a welter of running notes, comes grandly to a close. The work is set for four-part choir (SATB). This fine work became the basis for a Mass (also for four-part choir) published by Victoria twenty years later, in 1592. It uses all the motives of the motet except for the wonderful brief moment of the ‘O beata Virgo’ section. Victoria, it seems, omitted this from the material for the Mass because it was suitable only for quotation, not development. Similarly he omitted the opening phrase of ‘O quam gloriosum’ in his famous Mass on that motet.

In the Missa O magnum mysterium Victoria swings into triple time briefly just once in the Gloria, fleetingly three times in the Credo, and then to great effect in the Hosanna which follows both Sanctus and Benedictus. He varies his four-part vocal texture just twice. The Benedictus is for three voices (the bass is silent), and in the single setting of Agnus Dei he divides the trebles and makes them sing in canon at the unison. This five-part ending is customarily repeated to accommodate the words ‘dona nobis pacem’.

The motet Ascendens Christus is specified by Victoria In Ascensione Domini and the text comes from the last Responsorium of the Second Nocturn of Matins for that Feast. It was published five times in Victoria’s lifetime. Like O magnum mysterium, it first came out in 1572, and once again Victoria chose to make a Mass upon it which was published in 1592.

In perfect accord with the meaning of the words, Ascendens Christus is joyous and brilliant with strong rising phrases and ringing Alleluia motives. Again in accord with the origin of the text in a Responsorium, the musical plan is ABCB. The work is in two distinct halves. It is for five voice parts (SSATB).

All the motet’s material is imaginatively absorbed into the composition of the Mass. The five voices are retained but sections for reduced choir (or soloists) are scored for four voices in varied combinations. The ‘Christe eleison’ is SSAT. The ‘Domine Deus’ in the Gloria is for SSAB. The Credo has the ‘Crucifixus’ and ‘Et resurrexit’ for SSAT. The Benedictus is for SATB. The Agnus Dei is set only once and is for six voices, SSATTB, in which the first tenors, altos and second trebles are in canon (trinitas in unitate). In this recording the Agnus Dei is sung twice, once to ‘miserere nobis’ and repeated to ‘dona nobis pacem’.

All is lightness and brightness; the Gloria seems to bounce along, so springy are the rhythms, so concise and clearly declamatory with the verbal accents incomparably set. The triple-time Hosanna, sung to the same music after Sanctus and Benedictus, is typical of Victoria’s mature Masses. All is brief, clear and lightly decorated, perfect in liturgical propriety.

Victoria regarded the Mass as something happy and often jubilant. There are moments of quiet adoration or contemplation, but it is very significant that Victoria never chose to base a Mass upon sad or penitential motets, but always upon those of a joyful nature.

The Call of The Beloved
The Sixteen

The great Spanish composer and priest, Victoria, devoted his life to writing supremely uplifting and intense music throughout the church calendar. The Call of The Beloved includes some of the earliest triple-choir music ever to be published and is a reminder of Victoria’s joyous and passionate music, complementing his more austere Requiem and music for Holy Week.

Victoria: Lamentations of Jeremiah – The Tallis Scholars

2qdzm9xThe Tallis Scholars recording of Victoria’s Lamentations of Jeremiah has been nominated for a Grammy Award in 2011

Repostagem com novo e atualizado link.

Victoria’s nine Lamentations contain some of his most intense, mystical and moving music and rank alongside the Requiem as one of his greatest achievements.
The Spanishness of Spanish polyphony is often invoked. There is an impression that in their worship the Spanish have a fierceness, coupled to a mysticism, which sets them apart. This way of thinking was current a long time ago: Michelangelo, when asked by the Florentine painter Pontormo how he could best please a Spanish patron, replied that he should ‘show much blood and nails’. Such rawness has readily been attributed to their music, too. (http://www.gimell.com/recording-victoria—lamentations-of-jeremiah.aspx)

Requiem de Victoria (1605): Westminster Cathedral Choir

2roswvkEsta música, que a menudo se conoce sólo como Requiem de Victoria, se ha considerado como una de sus mejores obras y una de las últimas grandes obras de lo que denominamos estilo polifónico renacentista.

El Oficio de Difuntos de Victoria comprende su segunda Misa de Réquiem, escrita para coro a seis voces. Una convicción apasionada entrecruza su austeridad refinada y digna; relumbra con fervor extraordinario dentro de una atmósfera musical y espiritual de serenidad y aptitud para su finalidad litúrgica. Pero también requiere cierta explicación.

Durante los últimos de los veinte años más o menos que pasó en Roma, el sacerdote abulense Tomás Luis de Victoria compuso y publicó en 1533 un libro de Missas, entre ellas una Missa pro defunctis para coro a cuatro voces. Este primer Réquiem fue reeditado en 1592. Para entonces Victoria estaba bien establecido en Madrid como maestro de coro y capellán de la emperatriz María, hermana de Felipe II y viuda de Maximiliano II, recluída ahora en el Real Convento de las Clarisas Descalzas. La princesa Margarita, hija de María, hizo su profesión solemne en 1584 y era una de las treinta y tres monjas de clausura cuyos servicios diarios, la Liturgia del Oficio Divino, cantaban doce sacerdotes y cuatro infantes de coro (número que aumentó a seis en 1600).

El 26 de febrero de 1603 falleció la emperatriz, siendo enterrada tres días después en el claustro del convento. Seguramente los servicios serían sencillos. Las grandes exequias tuvieron lugar el 22 y 23 de abril en la Iglesia de los Santos Pedro y Pablo (donde ahora se yergue la catedral de Madrid). La capilla del convento era demasiado pequeña para este servicio conmemorativo. Se cantaron las Vísperas del Oficio de Difuntos; luego, de madrugada, los Maitines de Difuntos, que en inglés se conocen como Dirge, canto fúnebre, (del latín «Dirige, Domine …» con que empieza el Primer Nocturno). Luego, tras de cantar los Laudes, se celebró la Missa pro defunctis, la Misa Solemne por los difuntos. El catafalco que representaba a la emperatriz María su ataúd estaba situado entre el coro y el altar mayor. Estaban presentes el rey Felipe II, vestido con los colores plata y negro de luto, su prima la princesa Margarita, la monja real, todas las dignidades de la iglesia y el estado, agrupados en una escena que hoy nos recuerda a un cuadro del Greco, todos ellos testigos de aquella antigua ceremonia católica para los difuntos, la Misa de Réquiem.

Para esta ocasión el compositor Victoria escribió su segundo Requiem o, como él lo llamó correctamente, el Oficio de Difuntos. Compuso música para la propia Misa, un motete funeral adicional a la liturgia estricta, y uno de los grandes textos latinos para la ceremonia de absolución que sigue a la Misa, así como una Lección que pertenece a los Maitines.

Dos años más tarde, Victoria publicó esta música (Prensa Real, Madrid 1605) que desde entonces ha sido venerada además de admirada pues da la impresión de ser un Réquiem para una época, el ocaso del Siglo de Oro, el final de la música del Renacimiento, la última gran obra del mismo Victoria. Al menos no publicó nada más.

Se ha dicho que fue el canto del cisne de Victoria, pero en su dedicatoria a la princesa Margarita queda claro que el Cygneam Cantionem se refiere a la Emperatriz. Mal podía imaginar Victoria en 1603 o 1605 que él mimso fallecería en 1611, a la edad de sesenta y tres años. La dedicatoria en el fronstispicio de la edición de 1605 dice claramente que él, Victoria, compuso esta música para ‘las obsequias de vuestra muy reverenciada madre’.

La música para la Misa, creada por Victoria con las entonaciones y versos adecuados en canto llano, según la costumbre de la época, está escrita para coro a seis voces con tiples divididos, alto, tenores divididos y bajo. Las melodías en canto llano se incorporan al tejido polifónico en el segundo tiple (a excepción del Ofertorio donde el canto está en el alto). El primer tiple asciende y desciende alrededor del lento desarrollo del canto llano parafraseado, dando a toda el entramado una maravillosa luminosidad. El uso de dos voces de tenores contribuye a la ligereza y claridad. Incluso se especifica que las modulaciones y versículos del canto llano deben ser cantados por los infantes de coro. A la grandiosa sonoridad de las seis voces con las que Victoria construye su breve Kyrie eleison sigue el Christe, sólo con las cuatro voces altas, en un pasaje tan triste que parece un llanto ritual convertido en música.

Concluida la Misa, Victoria continúa con el motete Versa est in luctum, que suponemos sería cantado mientras el clero y las dignidades rodeaban el catafalco (que representaba a la Emperatriz). Seguía la Absolución y con la música compuesta por Victoria para el gran Libera me Domine concluye, con las respuestas del Kyrie, la música que compuso para esta ocasión solemne.

En la edición de 1605, Victoria añadió la Segunda Lección de Maitines por los Difuntos. Para poner esta música en su contexto y dar cierta impresión de lo que desembocaría en la Misa propia, hemos puesto el Responsorio Credo quod Redemptor en canto llano en su lugar debido antes del «Taedet» de Victoria. Forman un extracto del largo Oficio de Maitines.

A continuación hemos situado el Cántico de Zacarías, con su debida antífona, al final del Oficio de Laudes que precede a la Misa.

Se emplean las variantes españolas del s.XVI de los cantos. Hemos hecho uso en particular de la Agenda Defunctorum (1556) de Juan Vásquez.

Al restaurar el versículo «Hostias et preces» para completar litúrgicamente el Ofertorio de Victoria, hemos derivado el canto llano del anterior Requiem de 1583 del propio Victoria (vuelto a imprimir en 1592). El Agnus Dei del medio y las respuestas Requiescant in pace. Amen. han sido añadidas por el equipo editorial.

Tomás Luis de Victoria nació en 1548 en Ávila, lugar de nacimiento de Santa Teresa. Así como ella parece personificar la actitud religiosa de la España del s.XVI (al menos su aspecto positivo), del mismo modo Victoria llegó a representar lo mejor del carárcer español en música. Muy joven aprendió su arte como infante de coro de la catedral de Ávila; tan prometedor resultó que a los diecisiete años fue enviado a Roma, bajo el patrocinio de Felipe II y la Iglesia, a estudiar an el Collegium Germanicum de los jesuitas.

La carrera musical de Victoria en Roma le puso en contacto con Palestrina y los innumerables cantantes, organistas y compositores de toda Europa, activamente empleados en las capillas e iglesias de aquella gran urbe en el momento preciso en que el catolicismo recuperaba su confianza, una vitalidad nueva y una reforma disciplinada. El joven sacerdote español empezó pronto a publicar sus composiciones en ediciones suntuosas. Ni el mismo Palestrina tuvo tanta suerte en aquellos momentos.

El éxito de los años en Roma no fue óbice para que Victoria siguiera añorando una vida tranquila en España. Tras de sus publicaciones de 1585 consiguió su deseo y regresó a ocupar el puesto de capellán y maestro de capilla del Real Convento de las Clarisas Descalzas en Madrid, de hecho hogar y capilla de la hermana de Felipe II, la emperatriz viuda María. Allí concluyó sus días, componiendo cada vez menos a partir de 1600 y nada, que nosotros sepamos, tras la publicación en 1605 del gran Oficio de Difuntos. Había rechazado ofrecimientos de Sevilla y Zaragoza; visitó Roma durante el período de 1592–94, para supervisar la impresión de sus obras y acudir al funeral de Palestrina. En 1595 regresó a Madrid para no volver a partir.

Alma Latina: Segundo Festival de Música Renacentista y Barroca Americana, Misiones de Chiquitos vol. II

Capa-solo-WEBSegundo Festival de Música Renacentista y Barroca Americana
Misiones de Chiquitos
vol. II
1998

El material aquí presentado es tan solo una pequeña muestra de lo que fue el II Festival “Misiones de Chiquitos”. Las obras seleccionadas para los dos CDs sirven para documentar el desarrollo de música occidental en todos los mayores centros de su presencia en la Américas, desde los primeros años de su establecimiento hasta bien estrado siglo XIX.

La contribución del ambiente en la formación y desarrollo de los estilos musicales ha sido abundante. Una de las cosas sobresalientes en este documento es el spectrum y la originalidad del material incluído. Al lado de las tradiciones catedralicias, misionales o monásticas contamos con una impresionante contribución del medio de donde proviene la música.

Hablando tan solo de la letra de las obras, hay textos no solo en latín y español (propios al ambiente urbano) sino que muchos de ellos se sirvieron de lenguas originarias (ambiente de las misiones), como por ejemplo: maya, qheshwa, chiquitano, moxo o mapuche.

Los conciertos del Festival incluyeron obras de los múltiples archivos musicales americanos que poseen la música de la época de la Colonia: Puebla, Oaxaca, México, Guatemala (San Juan Ixcoi, la Catedral), Cuba, Santa Fé de Bogotá, Lima, Cuzco, Trujillo, La Plata (hoy Sucre), Tarija, las misiones de Chiquitos, Moxos, Guarayos y Mapuches, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro y Bahía. Además, se presentaron, también, cantos de los anónimos sefardíes, un corpus de música instrumental y obras de los compositores de España, Italia, Alemania e Inglaterra.

El arreglo de los 2 CDs refleja la riqueza de estos programas, aunque no todo ha sido posible encerrar en ellos. Las grabaciones se las hizo en vivo, sin posibilidad alguna de repetición o corrección. El fin que hemos buscado ha sido producir un documento sonoro del Festival.

Alma Latina: In Natali Domini – Christmas in Spain and the Americas in the 16th Century

La Colombina
O Natal na Espanha e nas Américas
Século XVI

Quatro cantores, solistas de renome, cujos caminhos se cruzaram em várias produções, madrigalistas fervorosos e, além disso bons amigos, decidiram formar um conjunto em novembro de 1990: La Colombina, o nome da coleção de música do final do século XV mantido na Biblioteca Colombina em Sevilha.

Cosmopolitas e muito latinos na formação, o conjunto é composto por um argentino, um italiano e dois catalães, especializados em música renascentista e música barroca, tanto religiosa como secular, cantando em sua maioria ‘a cappella’.

Enquanto o repertório favorito do grupo é muitas vezes espanhol, ele não deixa de excursionar pela música da França e especialmente da Itália. Desde a sua fundação, além de uma programação de gravação regular, La Colombina tem dado concertos na França, Bélgica, Espanha, Itália, Suíça, Holanda, Israel …

Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France: Tomás Luis de Victoria

Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France Tomás Luis de Victoria
Gravação de 1956

O Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France, fundado pelo maestro Louis Martini, foi um dos melhores corais europeus dos anos 50 e 60.

Especializaram-se na interpretação de músicas do barroco francês.

Existem raríssimas referências a ele e seu coral na internet. Uma das poucas, informa: “May 6–May 28, 1956 – In Paris, Heitor Villa-Lobos supervises the recording of his Bachiana Brasileira No. 6 by Fernand Dufrene (flute) and René Plessier (bassoon) and his Bachiana Brasileira No. 2 with the Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française, the four suites of his Descobrimento do Brasil, his Chôros No. 10 and his Invocação em defesa da patria, with Maria Kareska (soprano), the Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France, and the Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française for EMI.” (Wikipedia)

Tradução, segundo a gentil contribuição do nosso ouvinte Orlando: “28 de maio de 1956 – Em Paris, Heitor Villa-Lobos supervisiona a gravação de sua Bachiana Brasileira No. 6, com Fernando Dufrene (flauta) e René Plessier (fagote) e de sua Bachiana Brasileira No. 2 com a Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française, as quatro suítes de seu Descobrimento do Brasil, seus Choros No. 10 e sua Inovação em defesa da pátria, com Maria Kareska (soprano), o Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France e a Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française pela EMI”.”

The Tallis Scholars Sing Iberian Requiems

Having recorded the Victoria, it seemed logical for us to continue with the best of the Portuguese settings, which eventually led us to make discs of the Cardoso Requiem and the six-voice version by Duarte Lôbo.

Settings of the Requiem Mass are among the most frequent requests for concert music. This may seem unlikely, given the subject matter, but in fact it is just that subject matter which makes them so compelling. There is a drama inherent in the text which never fails to move audiences, having, in the first place, brought out the best in the composer. It is not a modern kind of drama such as we are used to seeing in the cinema or on television, but rather of the opposite: of the light which is shining on the deceased (whose body would have been present in the original performances), of the immediacy of heaven, of the peace which death will bring. Put in words this may sound a bit far-fetched, but from the split second that the opening ‘Requiem aeternam’ chant is heard, every listener is inevitably transported. It is a classic instance of the power of music over every other art-form to communicate without reserve.

This drama gradually moves through different stages as the music proceeds. The essential mood is the one of the opening – long-held chords inviting the contemplation of eternal rest. This is the Requiem’s alternative to the atmosphere of desperation, noise and betrayal which underpins so many television thrillers. It returns at regular intervals – in the Gradual, the Sanctus and Agnus Dei, through the promise of perpetual light in the Communion – but is interrupted in the Offertory and the Responsory by the thought of what will happen if Christ does not deliver the departed soul from the pains of hell. In every setting the ‘essential mood’ becomes unbearably intensified in these passages, though the musical style may not change very much. One recoils from the ‘poenis inferni’ (the ‘pains of hell’), the ‘ore leonis’ (the ‘lion’s mouth’), the ‘dies irae, calamitatis et miseriae’ (the ‘day of wrath, calamity and woe’). Indeed the Responsory represents a mini-drama within the whole, piling agony on agony as the pace of the music quickens by alternating brief chant passages with abbreviated polyphony. But in both the Offertory and the Responsory calm is restored by the idea of light: ‘let Saint Michael bring them forth into Thy holy light’ in the Offertory, and ‘lux perpetua’ (‘light perpetual’) in the Responsory.

The main reason why Victoria’s six-voice Requiem is one of the greatest masterpieces of the entire renaissance period is that this mood perfectly summed up the composer’s view of life and death. There was no better text for a committed Catholic priest to set. In doing so Victoria created a sound-world which, although it was not original, gained a dimension not imagined before. In fact the Requiem (or Missa pro defunctis) had long been a favourite text of Iberian composers, from the late fifteenth-century setting of Pedro de Escobar onwards. This continued through the sixteenth century with, in particular, two versions by Morales, through to the High Renaissance and the setting by Guerrero amongst others. By the early years of the various ways to take up the possibilities inherent in the Victoria. There remain quite a few more, in particular the six-voice setting by Felipe de Magalhães and the eight-voice of Lôbo. This set represents the first time the fruits of this mini-project have been made available together.

The Tallis Scholars Sing Iberian Requiems

Victoria wrote his Requiem for the funeral in 1603 of the Dowager Empress Maria, daughter of Charles V, wife of Maximilian II, mother of two emperors and sister of Philip II of Spain. For some years Victoria had been her chaplain. The music was published in 1605 in a print which contained nothing other than the movements associated with the funeral service, though some of these were extra to the normal sequence. In particular Victoria included the four-voice Taedet animam meam and the six-voice Versa est in luctum, though no one is entirely sure when these would have been sung. We omit the Taedet here not least because its style is very different from that of the Requiem proper, but include the Versa est in luctum as a postlude.

It is the six-voice texture (SSATTB) of the Victoria, used in long sustained chords which hide a plainchant melody in one of the soprano parts, that sets the scene for the Evora compositions. Both the Cardoso and the Lôbo apparently begin as carbon copies of the Victoria, the music expanding from the plainchant ‘requiem aeternam’ as it were from a single point with infinite spaciousness. In fact the musical language of these Portuguese writers is not entirely derivative. The Cardoso in particular stakes out its own harmonic territory in that first phrase, making towards an augmented chord which suggests a date of composition well after Victoria’s time. It was this chord which so struck listeners when the original disc of this music was released by Gimell in 1990, establishing Cardoso (c.1566–1650) for the first time as a major figure of the period. This Requiem was published in 1625, but it is not known for whose obsequies it was written. The Requiem proper follows Victoria in being scored for six voices (SSAATB in this case); the concluding Responsory Libera me however reduces to four (SATB).

Duarte Lôbo (c.1565–1646) was an exact contemporary of Cardoso, who must therefore have been a close colleague in both Evora and Lisbon. His penchant was for full sonority, as shown in both of his Requiem settings: the eight-voice (not recorded here) technically follows the trendy double choir baroque format of the time, but in fact proceeds for much of its length in eight-part counterpoint. His six-voice Requiem is apparently a later work – published in 1639 as opposed to the 1621 of the eight-voice – but simply continues the dense and sonorous idiom of his earlier years. His six-voice choir is SAATTB, which emphasizes the denseness, though he continued to put the chant in the single soprano part, instead of the more usual tenor, as both Victoria and Cardoso had done before him. The final Responsory, to different words, again sees a reduction to four voices.

To fill out the Iberian picture of these two discs, we have included four motets each by Cardoso and the Spanish composer Alonso Lobo (1555–1617, not related to Duarte). Two of the Cardoso motets, Non mortui and Sitivit anima mea, originally appeared in the same publication as his Requiem (1625) and therefore, since that book only contained Mass-settings, were obviously viewed as an integral part of the funeral rite. The other two Cardoso motets have more general texts, though Nos autem gloriari would not be out of place at the conclusion of a funeral or memorial service. Similarly two of the Alonso Lobo items are associated with the Requiem, most obviously his magnificent Versa est in luctum which may be compared with that of Victoria (Disc One, Track 9). Lobo’s setting does not appear to have belonged to a Missa pro defunctis proper, though his Credo quod redemptor (Track 14) is also associated with the service of Matins for the Dead. Vivo ego is a more general text within the period of Lent. Lobo’s Ave Maria is a masterpiece of a rather different kind, being based on a complex canon 8 in 4 at the upper fifth. Although the eight voices are divided into two choirs and the bottom part of each choir sings the same music, the other three voices are rearranged: the top part of the choir which begins becomes the third part in the choir which responds, the second part of choir I becomes the top part of choir II and the third part of choir I becomes the second part of choir II. Yet despite the mathematical intricacies the resulting music seems artlessly serene, as befits the text. It culminates in the most perfect ‘Amen’, where the beauty inherent in these canons is particularly telling.
