Santa Fe Desert Chorale : A Celebration of Hispanic Music : 1 CD : Linda Mack :  : 924CD

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : A Celebration of Hispanic Music

Review: A study of the evolution of musical style in Hispanic churches in the New World reveals a remarkable melding of a number of cultures. Spanish colonists carried the musical traditions of the European Renaissance to the native people of the Americas, and, through time and circumstance, these traditions merged in the American Southwest to create a musical genre with a rich historical grounding. A treasury of sacred works by the finest composers from Spain and the New World - from the Renaissance majesty of Morales and Victoria to the Misa Criolla, one of the 20th century's most beloved choral works. This is the program that was performed for a tour of Northern New Mexico historic churches during the summer of 2005.

Songlist: Misa Criolla - Ariel Ramirez, Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Die, Two Aztec Songs to the Virgin (Don Hernando Franco), Santa Maria yn ilhuicac, Dios itlaconantzine, Sancta Maria, succurre miseris - (Cristobal de Morales), Alleluia! Dic nobis Maria - (Francisco Lopez Capillas), Sanctus and Hosanna - (Francisco Guerrero), In Annuntiatione Benissimae Mariae - (Tomas Luis de Victoria), Egregie Doctor - (Antonio de Salazar/Manuel de Sumaya), Sol-fa de Pedro - (Manuel de Sumaya), In manus tuas - (Sebastian de Vivanco), Sa qui turo zente pleta - (Anonymous)

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : Christmas in Santa Fe : 1 CD : Linda Mack :  : 926

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : Christmas in Santa Fe

Review: Recorded live at Santa Fe's Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis, the Chorale's latest CD inlcudes beloved carols from around the world, the majestic O Holy Night, John Rutter's lilting Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day, Steven Heitzeg's charming setting of the e.e. cummings poem, little tree, and much more beautiful music of the season. Christmas in Santa Fe is colored by the Mexican influence. Little lanterns adorn some of the adobe buildings and the candlelight processions known as posadas wend thru the town. The program of 20 separate selections was recorded live during two nights' performances at a Winter Festival last year in the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis. The intent was to capture some of the inspiration and job of this time of the year.

Songlist: Seven Joys of Christmas, Christmas Lullaby, Lullay, This Little Babe, What Sweeter Music, Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day, Good King Wenceslas, Joy to the World, Little Tree, Alegria, Hiney Mah Tov, Duermete, Nino Lindo, O Holy Night, Allelia, Dies Sanctificatus

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : Passion : 1 CD : Linda Mack :  : 923

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : Passion

Review: Throughout history, the singing voice has been a vehicle for the expression of intense emotion. In Passion, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale performs a cappella settings that reflect the heart of human existence: passion for God, country, love and life itself. Although this recording of repertoire selected from the Chorale's 2005 summer season is focused on music of the 20th and 21st centuries, it encompasses a wide variety of harmonic rhythmic and stylistic elements.

Songlist: Laetentur Coeli, O Nata Lux, Chorale, Ave Maris Stella, Ye Shall Go Out With, Mary Speaks, Salve Regina, Soneto de la Noche, A Boy And A Girl, La Rosa, Puncha Puncha, Kpanlongo, Reggel, Beautiful River, My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord, Demos Gracias Al Senor Golijov, The Lark, Overture To Candide

Santa Fe Desert Chorale : Vespers

Review: Over the last 25 years, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale has earned a reputation for artistic excellence as well as adventurous and widely varied programming, and this recording of the final performances of the 2007 summer season continues in that tradition! This limited edition CD captures the Desert Chorale presenting monumental works by Gregorio Allegri and Sergei Rachmaninoff live at the Cathedral Basilica St. Francis in Santa Fe on August 10 and 11, 2007. In addition, 32 Desert Chorale alumni singers - including members of the 1983 inaugural season - joined this season's choir in presenting Miserere, mei Deus. This recording is dedicated to the memory of Arthur "Mack" Wright, a wonderful friend and enthusiastic admirer of the Chorale's "glorious music." It is made possible by a generous gift from Mary Wright.

Songlist: Miserere mei, Deus, Priidite, poklonimsia, Blagoslovi, dushe moya, Ghospoda, Blazhen muzh, Svete tihiy, Nine otpushschayeshi, Bogoroditse Devo, Maloye Slavosloviye, Hvalite imia Ghospodi, Blagosloven Yesi, Ghospodi, Voskreseniye Hristovo Videvshe, Velichit dusha moya Ghospoda, Slavosloviye velikoye, Dnes spaseniye, Voskres iz groba, Vzbrannoy voyevode
