Carmelite Vespers by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

21 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pesar su propio Luteranismo, Handel escribió una notable música para la liturgia católica, durante su juventud en Roma. La interpretación de Parrott y sus grupos Taverner es regocijante. Handel escribió obviamente para un estelar soprano castrati, pero aquí las verdaderas "estrellas" son tres sopranos solistas (femeninas) de Parrott. Jill Feldman no estaba en su mejor voz para esta grabación: sus momentos más fuertes pueden sonar un poquito forzados, pero su cantar más suave es verdaderamente encantador. Emma Kirkby es, por supuesto, un placer en el "Laudate pueri", y Emily van Evera canta a la perfección

La grabación de Andrew Parrott es considerada tanto por los críticos como los oyentes como LA GRABACION de las Vísperas de Monteverdi de 1610.

Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Choir and Players turn to music of their namesake alongside works by his contemporary King Henry VIII, an exceptionally musical monarch, as well as two composers of the previous generation, William Cornysh and Hugh Ashton. This recording takes its lead from the unashamedly secular character of the work and ventures beyond the chapel door to explore the parallel world of courtly vernacular song and instrumental music
