  • On An Overgrown Path: Bach chorale's secret French connection
    more than a useful exploration of little known early music The Huguenot Psalter contributed to the development of the chorale form which reached its peak with Bach This lovingly sung and recorded CD is an important addition to the catalogue and can be bought online from the FNAC website where short audio samples are also available or online from K617 As Martin Luther said God preaches the Gospel through music too Founded in 1990 the Maîtrise de Nîmes brings together young people who are trained in choral singing between the ages of eight and seventeen within the framework of a general school education at the Institut Emmanuel d Alzon in Nîmes The Maîtrise provides an artistic education which enables the children to practise a wide range of musical activities There is an emphasis on baroque music but the schools activities have also included performing Jacques Loussier s Mass Lumières in 1966 at the inauguration of the inspirational new cathedral at Evry that I wrote about here recently The photo below shows the choir in front of the Maison Carrée in Nîmes which features in my header photo The age of the choristers ranges from 9 to 17 The Huguenot Psalter was a product of the Calvinists and Brother Roger who founded the Taizé Community which has featured here several times was also a Calvinist and was born in Switzerland Music is a central feature of the Taizé liturgy as well Top two photographs taken by Pliable and copyright On An Overgrown Path Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Now read how France said no with help from Father Joe Posted by Pliable at Tuesday April 17 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels baroque calvin calvinism catholicism Choir of the Maîtrise de Nimes Church Music france Huguenot Psalter j s bach k617 le couvent centre martin luther nimes norman foster 2 comments Pliable said Help please Can any readers suggest where I can buy a recording of Jacques Loussier s Mass Lumières also known as his Baroque Mass It must be one of the few recordings totally deleted The only copy I could find was on a ludicrously priced eBay auction 4 52 pm Pliable said Some background information to this story has come to my attention In the sixteenth century Nîmes was a major Protestant stronghold and was the scene of a major massacre of Catholics in 1567 Three quarters of the population of Nîmes converted to Calvinism or Huguenotism as it was known in France and there was extensive persecution of Catholics in the surrounding areas 4 45 pm Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown

  • On An Overgrown Path: Built on rock hard evidence
    a Thanks Kirsty 6 59 pm Pliable said Kirsty as soon as Norman published that article in April 2006 I emailed him to point out that the Minnesota Orchestra were recording a Beethoven Symphony cycle Here is Norman s reply which I received on April 6 2006 In these circumstances I make no apologies for quoting it Bob Minnesota have issued one pair of symphonies From what I hear they have no funding in place for more The people concerned have a reputation for jumping the gun Not for quotation best Norman 9 36 pm Sam said That e mail exchange with Norman is amusing seeing as there was never a point when funding for the cycle was in question Like many American orchestras we are paid for recordings by our own organization and under our contract we receive a certain amount of guaranteed media pay regardless of whether CDs and broadcasts occur or not so it s always in our management s best interest to record and broadcast BIS picks up the cost of production and engineering and everybody s happy Sorry to disappoint Norman but as usual he s talking nonsense with no real knowledge of the situation As far as I know I m the only member of the Minnesota Orchestra that he s met and I suspect that his animosity came from an old grudge against our CEO at the time who once penned a highly unfavorable review of a Lebrecht book Sam Bergman viola Minnesota Orchestra 11 25 pm Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 March 27 February 24 January 30 2011 299 December 22 November 21 October 42 September 12 August 24 July 38 June 29 May 5 April 34 March 9 February 33 January 30 2010 281 December 37 November 20 October 36 September 7 August 37 July 27 May 17 April 33 March 12 February 26 January 29 2009 367 December 22 November 23 October 33 September 7 August 35 July 30 May 42 April 39 March 41 February 47 January 48 2008 476 December 38 November 40 October 57 September 39 August 36 July 42 June 9 May 54 April 41 March 44 February 30 January 46 2007 572 December 43 November 65 October 55 September 11 August 46
