Classical | Label: Chandos | # CHAN 0566/7 | Recorded: 1993

The 2nd book of these Symphoniae, written in the dark years of the devastating 30 Years War and published in 1647, stands among his central body of works and holds many affecting and beautiful moments. The British recording being reviewed here presents the 2nd book in its order of publication, which is not structured as a coherent work end-to-end work but rather is organized by range and number of soloists, indicating that each of the symphoniae is a single piece standing on its own. Book II starts with the symphoniae for solo voice, works its way down the vocal range from soprano to bass, then proceeds on to the duets and trios and concluding with a few more ambitious works for a full set of vocal soloists.
This 1990s vintage Chandos recording is headlined by famed early music soprano Emma Kirkby, whose qualities are very apparent: a wonderful high soprano voice combined with absolute technical control. She effortlessly performs some of the runs in the first group of symphoniae, showing almost miraculous pitch focus and control of the line in the emphatic “Singet dem herren” (no. 2). The release is also helped by very fine work from the lower-voiced male soloists (Stephen Varcoe and Richard Wistreich), for example in “Von Aufgang” (no. 22), a slower symphoniae making extensive use of canonical entrances. The performance through all 30 pieces is consistently good and technically accomplished.

Performer:
Emma Kirkby, soprano
Suzie Le Blanc, soprano
James Bowman, alto
Nigel Rogers, tenor
Charles Daniels, tenor
Stephen Varcoe, bass
Richard Wistreich, bass
