Barokowa Muzyka Klasyczna
premiera polska: 2021-11-08
In succession to the Tudors, the flourishing court culture of the Stuart royal dynasty fostered one of the greatest periods in the history of British music. Director and organist Andrew Arthur unites his forces in this compelling programme of works by three composers who flourished in the Jacobean period – Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Weelkes and Thomas Tomkins – around the theme of the Word of God. The choral items on this disc exemplify a rhetorically-aware sense of what it means to sound the Word enriched with music in order to teach, move and delight.
