Ubi Caritas et Amor

Music by Morten Lauridsen

A setting of an antiphon for Maunday Thursday, Ubi caritas et amor was written in 1999 in memory of the choral conductor and scholar, Richard H. Trame, SJ. In this motet, Lauridsen subtly adapts the plainchant melody, adorning it with contrapuntal elaborations that create a glowing nimbus of sound. Premiered at Loyola Marymount University in December, 1998, Dr. Mary C. Brenden, Conductor, Loyola Marymount University Chorus Fr. Thomas P. O'Malley, S.J., President, Loyola Marymount University

Morten Lauridsen : Northwest Journey : 00  1 CD

Morten Lauridsen : Northwest Journey

Morten Lauridsen has become one of America's most widely performed composers. His "O Magnum Mysterium" has been performed thousands of times since the 1994 premiere by Maestro Paul Salamunovich and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. With "Dirait-on" these two works are the all time best selling choral octavos distributed by Theodore Presser, in business since 1783! Northwest Journey features world premiere recordings of art songs, choral works and chamber music featuring superb musicians and vocalists. This musical offering spans the range of Morten's work. "Where Have the Actors Gone" gives one the sense of an allegorical ending to a relationship which might be found in a stage setting of musical theatre. From his beloved choral set, "The Songs of the Roses," comes a new arrangement of "Dirait-on" written for vocal duet. There is the unaccompanied motet, "Ubi Caritas et Amour." "A Winter Come" deftly takes the imagery of Howard Moss's verse and presents it in a marvelous variety of moods using amazing piano composition to accompany the soprano voice. Garcia Lorca's poetry is presented in the musical setting of the "Cuatro Canciones," each song based on a wider interval than the previous. And then we arrive at the finale, a new arrangement of the beautiful "O Magnum Mysterium" which presents the power of the original choral version carefully preserved in this premiere recording for solo voice. Wonderful!

Songlist: Where Have the Actors Gone, Dirait-On, Ubi Caritas et Amor, A Winter Come, Variaions, Madrigali, Cuatro Canciones, O Magnum Mysterium

Polyphony : Lauridsen - Lux Aeterna : 00  1 CD : Stephen Layton : 67449

Polyphony : Lauridsen - Lux Aeterna

Stephen Layton directs his 21-mixed-voice Polyphony, which he founded in 1986 at King's College, Cambridge, in some of Morten Lauridsen's most beloved works, accompanied by the Britten Sinfonia. The 5 movements of title tune are first, and is as lovely (accompanied, of course) as we have ever heard it. "Madrigali: Six Fire Songs on Italian Renaissance Poems" follow, exuberant, spirited a cappella pieces. The recording concludes with Lauridsen's beautiful a cappella "Ave Maria," haunting, chantlike "Ubi caritas et amor" and the classic "O magnum mysterium." Lauridsen is pictured in the extensive liner notes giving his personal direction to the making of this very fine CD. The best of Lauridsen from talented Polyphony, directed by Layton, and with a wonderful Pre-Raphaelite painting of an angel on the cover-who could ask for more?

Songlist: Lux Aeterna, Madrigali: Six "Fire Songs", Ave Maria, Ubi Caritas et Amor, O Magnum Mysterium

Ubi caritas et amor : SSAA :  :  : Sheet Music : 48024476 : 888680932312 : 1784544825

Kim André Arnesen : Ubi caritas et amor

This work (here arranged for upper voices) by Kim André Arnesen, one of Norways most performed contemporary composers, was commissioned by the Athens Master Chorale, Georgia, USA for the 50th anniversary of their founder and conductor, Joseph S. Napoli. Afrequently set Latin text ('Where charity and love are, God is there'), Arnesens unique and original setting combines the composer's characteristic flowing melodies and rich harmonies to create a deeply expressive and heartfelt work. As the composer himself explains, in a world with a lot of tension and disunity I wanted to write a piece that sings about the commandments to loveone another. This music will certainly move both audience and singers, and ist suitable for church or concert use.
