Notes and Editorial Reviews

Harmonia Sacra represents a profoundly sombre Purcell, a music draped in black. The Archiv disc takes its title from a 1688 anthology that included several of the pieces here. These devotional songs – settings for one to four voices and continuo of religious poems – represent the private side of Purcell's sacred music, being composed for domestic rather than church or performances. Many songs on this disc are penitential in theme and lugubrious in pace; a title such as ‘In the black, dismal dungeon of despair' indicates the general mood of claustrophobic darkness. There is some superb vocal writing, and superb performances that perfectly convey the devotional impulse of the music, but the unremitting gravity of tone makes this a disc I cannot imagine wanting to hear often. Exceptions are the beautiful, and secular, ‘O solitude', the thrillingly dramatic ‘In guilty night' and George Herbert's riveting elegy ‘With sick and famish'd eyes'. The Oxford Camerata explores a different, more public, facet of Purcell's sacred music, the full anthems for choir and organ (‘full' as opposed to ‘verse' anthems, which include sections for solo voice). There is also a sequence of pieces titled – inaccurately – ‘Music on the Death of Queen Mary', which incorporates Purcell's Funeral Sentences, the famous ‘March and Canzona' and the solo elegy ‘Incassum, Lesbia'. The choral singing is often impressive, but the King's Consort (Hyperion) remains peerless in this repertoire. Tragicomedia's Songs of Welcome and Farewell lightens the mood with a curious mixture of material. ‘Why, why are all the Muses mute?' is one of Purcell's finest welcome songs, but ‘Welcome, vicegerent of the mighty king' was the first, and possibly least inspired, that he wrote. Similarly, the lovelorn ‘Plaint' makes a strange farewell song to set beside the two moving Latin elegies for Queen Mary. Still, a well-performed and engaging set.

AllMusic Review by James Manheim [-]
The voracious scouring of defunct catalogs by Dutch discounter Brilliant occasionally yields gems, and this is one. Originally recorded in 1994 and released on Deutsche Grammophon, the album collects sacred vocal pieces that qualify as rarities by Henry Purcell, who was mostly known for secular music. Apparently even in Purcell's own time they were intended for small circles of connoisseurs, and many remained in manuscript until recent times. Both in musical style and in literary content they are a bit old-fashioned, combining that quality with a daring mode of expression. The texts are by poets from earlier in the 17th century, several of them from the so-called Metaphysical school; they include such conceits as In the black, dismal dungeon of despair, Z190 (track 3), Plung'd in the confines of despair, Z142 (track 8), and O, I'm sick of life, Z140, none of which is as downbeat as the titles would lead you to believe; the focus is on the poetic virtuosity rather than the sentiment. Purcell matches this with free vocal lines that hark back to the Italian sacred concertos of the mid-century; his settings match the poetry in subtle ways that reveal new things on multiple hearings. They are for one to four voices plus continuo, and the Gabrieli Consort and Players under Paul McCreesh act as a single unit with extreme sensitivity to the text. The program is effectively broken up by a few ingenious keyboard pieces. An excellent find for Purcell lovers. Booklet notes are in English only.
