Label: Bene Arte - SIGCD904 • Format: CD Album • Genre: Classical •
The part song is a largely British form consisting of a four-part choral setting of a secular poem, generally with the melody in the top line.
It grew There Is Sweet Music - Tenebrae - Music Of The Spheres: Part Songs Of The British Isles of semi-professional genres such as the glee, and over time, in the hands of major composers, it took on contrapuntal trappings and greater expressive ambitions, but it never lost its basic orientation toward clear, homophonic text settings.
This collection by the fine English choir Tenebrae under director Nigel Short would make a good introduction to the genre, but will also attract those who have a few albums' Turu Turu - Various - Ibiza Mix + Caribe Mix of part songs in their collections, with some standard works interspersed with real finds from Short.
Shakespeare 's song texts have an ongoing association with the part song, and there are familiar Vaughan Williams and novel Herbert Murrill settings here. Other works draw on the lyric poetry of TennysonShelleyand the other 19th century lyric poets who populate the genre, with the contemporary composer Bob Chilcottwhose settings tend toward radiant simplicity, being the only one to take American texts, by Walt Whitmanas source material.
The songs range from the early 20th century to the early 21st, and an interesting feature of the tradition is its discrete quality, with composers responding to earlier works. The latter, an almost static work featuring one of Stanford 's most striking harmonic experiments, should be sampled on several counts: it represents the considerable technical demands the part song has at times made on performers, the full adequacy of Tenebrae in meeting those demands, and most importantly, the sheer beauty of which the genre is capable.
Many of these pieces have more in common with art song Hawkeye - The Alan Parsons Project - Vulture Culture with larger choral genres. Strong sound and text intelligibility from London's acoustically superb All Hallows Church add to the appeal.
