I occasionally browse through the collection of cd's to learn new songs and such and every now and then I forget i am on a mission and find myself listening to and thoroughly enjoying the music, yesterday I put on Tim Radfords - George Blake's Legacy and it has been playing ever since as I am working when I put it on I had in mind the learning of the song "In a British Man 0 war" but I forgot and just listened! So I thought I would flag it up, Tim gets on here I would thoroughly recommend the cd. So what is everyone else listening to?

At the weekend whilst pottering in the garage, I indulged myself with some nostalgia, in the form of Vin Garbutt, Martin Carthy and Harvey Andrews.

I also listened the other day to some of my own gear, but looking for things to improve rather than vanity.

The last two things I've listened to:

A new (to me ) CD, Celtic Wales (Arc Music 2001), part of their excellent Celtic Music series, with good liner notes in English and Welsh.   I particularly liked Seidr Ddoe ("Yesterday's Cider") by Plethyn, set to music by that group for a poem by Myrddin ap Dafydd, a poet hitherto unknown to me, but judging by these lyrics even in translation (I have no Welsh) is one I should look up.

And an old favorite I hadn't listened to for a while, Lads & Lasses: Music of the English Countryside (Soundalive CD, 1995), with performances by groups I haven't known from other CDs, The City Waites and The Noise of Minstrels. They are very much in the style of such better known (to me at least)groups as The Baltimore Consort. The spirited performances are mostly from Playford, and will be very attractive to anyone who enjoys this period of English music. Of particular note was a Playford song called here "Rufty Tufty," which proves to be yet another name for the tune most commonly known now as "Cold and Raw." This is a fascinating tune, some say originally Scottish, but reappearing again and again in British music, even having been used as a surprisingly good fit for the words of The Vicar of Bray. I've adapted it myself as a setting for Housman's Oh, when I was in love with you.

Well, lemme see, now. . . .

On KING-FM, a local classical music radio station, I'm listening to Capriccio Italien, written by Pyotr ilyich Tchaikovsky and played by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. This is a fantasy inspired by Italian folk songs and street songs that Tchaikovsky heard during a carnival while he was visiting Rome sometime in the late 1870s.

Italian music written by a Russian composer and recorded by a Norwegian orchestra.

Recent listening has included a DVD by Benjamin Bagby reciting the first thousand lines of Beowulf, an epic poem considered to be one of the very first pieces of English literature, at least the first to be preserved in manuscript form. The manuscript was found in 1000 A.D., but the epic poem itself is believed to date back to around 700 A.D.

Bagby recites it in the manner of the ancient bards or skalds, sometimes chanting to the accompaniment of and Anglo-Saxon lyre-harp. He does it in Olde English (with modern English subtitles). Olde English sounds like a mixture of a Scandinavian language and German, which it was before the injection of French after the Norman Invasion. The DVD is complete with extra features in which Bagby discusses his approach to the material and his use of the Anglo-Saxon lyre-harp. Fascinating!

Hark! to the Song of the Spear-Danes!.

Inspired by Don's post above, my first record of the day (vinyl, natch) is the debut Sequentia album Spielmann und Kleriker (um 1200) (AKA Minstrel and Cleric released in 1981 on Deutsche Harmonia Mundi. It kicks off with a near definitive take on Olim Sudor Hercules (light & sprightly, especially compared to the Clemencic Consort's bleak take on it) and wraps up with the truly stunning Samson Dux Fortissime. They re-recorded the latter, acapella, on the Visions from the Book CD (1996), but here in the quartet with Barbara Thornton (voice), Margriet Tindemans (mediaeval fiddle), Crawford Young (gittern) and Benjamin Bagby (voice & harp) it really swings, as does the rest of the album - the best they ever did in my humble opinion.

*

The best Beowulf I ever saw was Julian Glover's one-man show in the medieval library of Durham Cathedral one rainy afternoon in 1988 to an audience of about five as I recall. Afterwards it was truly an honor to shake the hand of Colonel Breen...

My wife has a vinyl recording (boxed set) of Cavalleria Rusticana, and I Pagliacci with Mario del Monaco singing the leading tenor roles.

Del Monaco was a handsome sucker (CLICKY) with an extremely powerful voice. When he was first hired by the Metropolitan Opera (to sing Radames in Aida), for some strange reason some opera critics panned him even before they heard him on stage. The big tenor aria in Aida occurs at a very difficult spot for the singer—in the first act, just a few minutes after the curtain goes up, with no chance to warm up (making it essential for him to be well warmed up before going on stage).

Del Monaco launches into "Celeste Aida," sings it beautifully and powerfully all the way, then when he hits the big, high Bb at the very end, he hits it so powerfully that he bends the walls of the opera house out and it registers on seismographs in California! And he holds it until Tuesday morning.

The audience when absolutely nuts! Standing ovation. Cheers and applause lasted for several minutes. Del Monaco had made it plain that he owned the role of Radames, and just about any other operatic role he wanted to tackle.

The critics who had pre-trashed him hid under their seats and slunk out of the opera house afterwards with their coats pulled over their heads.

Just listened to Adio Espana, one of the best records by the really excellent Baltimore Consort, one of the best early music groups. This is a collection of early renaissance Spanish music, and one of the things you learn from it is how varied that music is. You can find some knowledgeable reviews and samples on amazon here. Early music fans will certainly enjoy this cd, but one thing about the Baltimore Consort is that their recordings also tend to be attractive and accessible to listeners new to the music. It's the kind of record that serves equally well for casual or serious listening. Very good booklet included with a brief overview of the music and all lyrics in the original languages and English -- an example (to stray into another current thread) of why the supersession of CDs by mp3 files is a cultural disaster.

I have a fair collection of Baltimore Consort CDs, plus CDs of individual members of the group. Several of Ronn McFarlane on the lute, and one each of Custer LaRue singing British and American traditional songs (probably wouldn't meet the approval of folk purists, but nicely done nevertheless) and Julianne Baird (likewise).

I took in a concert by the group a few years ago at Seattle's town hall, and had a chance to chat for a few minutes with Ronn McFarlane.

There's quite a bit of interest in Early Music here in Seattle. Several groups, plus individual performers such as e.g., Elizabeth C.D. Brown who, in addition to modern classical guitar, plays lute and Baroque guitar—no idea what the "C.D." stands for.

I am listening to the interesting 16th-note rhythms and modal noodles of Oumou Sangaré performing a number called DJama Kaissoumou.

I believe the disk is called Moussolou (1990).

From Wikipedia: "Oumou Sangare (born February 25, 1968, in Bamako, Mali) is a Malian Wassoulou musician, sometimes referred to as "The Songbird of Wassoulou." Wassoulou is a historic region south of the Niger River, and the music there is descended from traditional hunting songs, and is accompanied by a calabash. Her mother was the singer Aminata Diakité."

Advance apology to thread purists: this is early music thread drift...
I love the Baltimore Consort!! And Hilliard Ensemble, Ensemble Obsidienne, Academy of Ancient Music, Dufay Collective. And although more baroque than true early music, Musica Antiqua Köln.

Alas, I just might give my right arm to have as clean a tone and true a pitch as Custer LaRue [sigh]. Okay, so I'm left-handed, still to consider giving up a whole arm!

I've loved early music since I was a toddler. The Huggett Family were my introduction to it at the ripe old age of 2 years. My parents knew them (maybe through Ottawa Phil. in which my father and uncle both played at one time) and convinced them I was worthy of a spot in an Orff class even though I was a year too young to start. I managed not to get kicked out for behaving my age and felt highly rewarded for my efforts when after at least 2 of the classes over the year, they invited a couple of kids and parents to stay afterwards for a short performance. Total magic it was to me. This was in 1960-61 and I've kept a taste for that sort of musicke.

Variety of Johnny McEvoy songs on you tube...I was not really familiar with him before.

Last night I listened to some old Irish Rovers videos on you tube and was struck by what nice voices most of them had...if Will had just sung straight instead of in a more theatrical manner they might not have been as popular of course..but the others could have shone more...one I especially liked was Joe and George Miller..not sure which is which..I think George has the dark hair..singing a duet on Murphy's Still. mg
