Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Peter Philips was, after William Byrd, the most published English composer of the Elizabethan-Jacobean Age. He was also the best-known English composer on the European mainland, having left his homeland at the age of twenty-one to avoid persecution as a Roman Catholic. He made for Rome and then travelled through Northern Europe, finally settling in Antwerp. He joined the court chapel of Archduke Albert, Viceroy of The Netherlands, as organist in 1597 and remained there until his death in 1628. His style of composition was certainly influenced by his period in Rome, as his music for multiple choirs attests. Indeed the antiphonal principal underlies much of the music on this recording, even if it is written for single choir.

"The performance is excellent. Given that the choir is made up of undergraduates, I assume that its makeup is considerably different today than it was in 2002 when this recording was made. It has provided a springboard for at least one young singer, Andrew Tortise, listed here in the tenors but now a rising star in the opera world. The chapel of Trinity College Cambridge has the ideal acoustic, warm but never threatening the clarity of the counterpoint." -Classical-CD-Reviews.com

"Philips encountered and absorbed a wide range of the influences circulating in western Europe towards the end of the 16th century...the best of his music is strikingly effective, and Richard Marlow and his Trinity College Choir respond impressively in those highlights." -The Guardian ***

"...the choir's sensitivity, poise and purity of sound generate a deeply moving performance. Engineering deftly captures each nuance and heightening of musical gesture...This disc illuminates a legacy which, despite periodic longeurs, richly deserves a hearing." -BBC Music Magazine ****

"Philips is so skilful in writing antiphonal and echo effects that you could easily think you were listening to pieces for double choir...In this recording from 2002, Richard Marlow and his mixed-voice choir are excellent." -Gramophone Magazine

"their overall sound is warm and blended, with a soprano section sounding sweetly pure yet mature of tone. Ornamentation is sharply defined and lightly executed, and they have a wonderfully expansive dynamic and emotional range...it would be impossible to find a choir that could better their sheer togetherness of attack." -Charlotte Gardner, bbc.co.uk
