How Bright appears the Morning Star - St. Mark's Cathedral - J. Melvin Butler Gaudete in Domino - Englsih Lady Mass - Thomas Packe - Schola Gothia Sound from Heaven/Washington National Cathedral
The chorale “Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern” (“How brightly shines the Morning Star”) is presented on this CD in a wide variety of musical styles, along with other hymns, anthems and voluntaries for the season of Epiphany. J. Melvin Butler directs the cathedral choir in this program of familiar–and unusual–works. Polyphonic settings of the ordinary of the Mass by Thomas Packe (fl. 1487-1499) are interspersed with Gregorian chant in this program which was recorded in the magnificent acoustics of the Varnhem Abbey. The four women of the Grammy-nominated Schola Gothia sing from manuscripts in historical notation on a single large music stand, facilitating a unity of ensemble that gives this music an authentic, transcendent spirit. This recording brings together a splendid tapestry of music from the Franco-Belgian tradition, including traditional Gregorian chant, monody from the Notre Dame Conductus which flourished in Paris circa 1200, and the medieval "Messe de Tournai." This music is paired with the excerpts from the Pentecost Mass for organ by Olivier Messiaen, the 20th century Roman Catholic mystic; also Messiaen's choral motet, "O Sacrum Convivium," and music from the Cathedral's 53-bell carillon.
