You know, like, music with choirs and stuff. I know nearly nothing. I tried some Hildegard Von Bingen and it didn't really do it for me. Maybe monophony ain't my thing. I need more notes! Go!

David Hykes - Harmonic Meetings

 


This is a great album that I've had for over twenty years now (double gatefold vinyl). The foundation of the album is overtone singing. Vibrations of Christianity, Judaism and Islam chants. Now that I think about it, I guess it's not very choral......but it is very harmonic!

I recently bought The Desert Music by Steve Reich, and that has a choir throughout. Give it a look.

Don't know if these links work because I'm at work and i can only copy/paste them. If you like it I have loads of this stuff inherited from my mum's tape collection:

The links don't go directly to youtube, but I figured it out. I am indeed interested in you mum's tape collection. I've never heard (of) this kind of music before. It's called Tenores, no?

Cool, I thought that those links might have been slightly wrong. I'll get back to you more extensively about the Tenores. In the meantime, I highly recommend you these 2 records put out by the German jazz and improv label Winter & Winter, because they are more readly obtainable for non-locals, and they both happen to be great: http://www.winterandwinter.com/index.php?id=211

Concordu De Orosei are my favourite of the lot, sometimes sounding like Tibetan chants.

There is just so, so much, and I can only really mention stuff in the Christian tradition. Think hundreds of years of religious music. You can go whereever you want with it - from Shaker songs, to Palestrina, to Sacred Heart Music, Eastern Orthodox (check out Fairuz, a Lebonese Maronite Christian who sings in Arabic), to modern choral music (check out my recent post in the "What Are You Listening To" thread - the record is called Scattered Rhymes by Tarik O'Regan, De Machaut and Gavin Bryars. It is wonderful choral music (Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir). If you are looking for more modern acapella stuff, please check out Stockhausen's Stimmel. It is beyond words.


Anyway, for a start, check out some American sacred heart music. Read up about it on Wikipedia as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoPWLov546M

I've also been listening to the Boston Camerata a lot recently as well.

If you can get Missa Luba
 
then do so, it's awesome.

If Hilde VB doesn't float your boat (which is a strange enough idea in itself), then avoid Guido. Dufay might be closer to what you're after; Howells & Fux come highly recommended, but not by me; Buxhetude & Handel bore me rigid, but might be worth looking into; Bach's Passions and masses are amoung the peak of everything, ever; pretty much any great mass will include a fair amount of choral stuff - Mozart's mass in BMin [I'll edit this if I mean something else] is indispensible; Bruckner's Motets are mind-flayingly wonderful, if you can get past their near-impenetrable surface.

Messian or Schoenberg's Cinq rechants/ De Profundis may be 'modern' enough to appeal (although personally I tend towards the earlier stuff). Penderecki's 8th gate of Jerusalem is vastly under-rated, and I suspect Part's Miserere is gorgeous enough for absolutely anyone.

Will likely forget to edit omissions/ errors, but PM me if you want me to up some stuff.

Edit: I may come back with a non-Western 'classical' list of choral stuff and all.

HVB is pleasant enough and all that, but music without any harmonic content (is that even the right word? I mean music with only single melodic lines. No chords no drone) can't hold my attention for that long. I have the same problem with solo sax (trumpet, flute, whatever) recordings.

I know what you mean, I can't abide many purely melodic things... it's only really certain plainsong (that word used fairly broadly) that does it for me. I think given what you've said above, you really should check out Bruckner's Motets. I often find 'modernist' pieces (12-tone/ avant-garde) aren't really fitting for 'elegiac' music, much better to express other things. Not a hard and fast rule, by any stretch....

gregorian chants are always nice
i like the mass for christmas day.
um...
john dunstable had some nice early motets
monteverdi was mindblowingly brilliant.
although its not a choral i highly recomend his lamtent arianna. its amazing. i am writing a report on it and it is amazing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFOEu...eature=related
not the full version, and if anyone is interested on reading an 8 page report in hebrew about this lament and its reprisentation of the female status in early baroque, pm me
