Jeremy writes:   Old-fashioned prescriptions used to say “the mixture as before” - if you could read the doctor’s hand.

 

Back, by a mixture of popular demand and dogged determination on the part of the ‘Class of 2016’, is Janequin’s avian concerto. Our major work is Mozart’s glorious Mass setting, unquestionably the finest he ever completed. Another short-lived composer, Mendelssohn, supplies us with beguiling part-songs. The ‘p’ should be silent - art-songs they are and, as art, we might define them as miniatures; though, in truth, the last of the set does its best to burst out of its frame. Purcell’s fine anthem is full of trademark quirky harmonies, while Monteverdi’s motet is an exuberant essay in seventeenth-century music with fascinating rhythmic interplay that highlights the different strands of text. Finally, Bob Chilcott’s ‘Like a Singing Bird’ is a subtle combination of old and loved with something new, fresh and instantly captivating.

 

No spoonful of sugar will be required to make this musical medicine go down!
