900 years : the restorations of Westminster Abbey by Thomas Cocke( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past nine centuries Westminster Abbey has experienced a process of change. Though its structure and contents have been transformed considerably since the first stones were laid at the time of its foundation by Edward the Confessor in the mid eleventh century, the overall design as well as the topography of river, palace and church are recognizably the same today. This loyalty to an established identity, together with essential repairs, changes of taste and of purpose - these are the key elements of the concept of 'Restoration' which this catalogue, and the exhibition it accompanies, celebrate."--BOOK JACKET. "The completion of the great programme of works, by which the Abbey has been renewed inside and out over the last three decades, is commemorated with this exhibition and the present, richly illustrated publication. The reader can here discover the complex story of the religious, political, social and aesthetic priorities of each age and thus bring to life the ever-changing and fascinating history of the most famous church in the land."--BOOK JACKET

Dixit dominus : classical music for reflection and meditation by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

1 edition published in 1988 in Latin and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After several recordings on Ricercar and a first disc on Alpha, Actus Tragicus, containing early Bach cantatas, 'of staggering profundity, purity and beauty' (ffff Telerama), Lionel Meunier and his ensemble Vox Luminis devote this new project to two showpieces by Handel and Bach. Of these two composers born in 1685, the first travelled to Italy in 1707 and made a powerful impression in Rome with the creation of his Dixit Dominus, while the second produced one of his finest compositional tours de force in the Magnificat of 1723/32-35. Two works from the core repertoire of the Belgian ensemble, here fielding combined vocal and instrumental forces, which is perfectly versed in the style and expression of Baroque rhetoric. Vox Luminis is a Belgian early music ensemble created in 2004 by its artistic director Lionel Meunier. Today, the ensemble performs over 60 concerts a year, appearing on stages in Belgium, across Europe and around the world. The size and composition of the group depends on the repertoire being performed but the core of soloists, mostly from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, is joined by a continuo and additional (orchestral) instrument performers. Its repertoire is essentially Italian, English and German and spans from the 16th to the 18th century. Since its inception, the ensemble is defined by its unity and seduces as much through the personality of each timbre as it does through the colour and the uniformity of the voices. It is more than a fixed repertoire, the ensemble members wholeheartedly communicate their passion for early music and love for the audience
