The Japanese liner notes call this combo – Harry Allen-Scott Hamilton New York Sextet – the first two-tenor team to be formed in the 21st century. I'm not sure about THE first in the century, but surely it is one of the most notable, and welcome, two-tenor teams in recent memory. Harry Allen and Scott Hamilton add their own contributions to the "two tenor" tradition built by such teams as Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray, and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims. Allen and Hamilton's modern day team is one of relaxed, friendly competition and mutual admiration that is perhaps most reminiscent of the Cohn-Sims combo. Their shared style decidedly leans to mainstream, straight-ahead swing, and they are not into showing off their skills or outstaging the partner.

The Sixteen, bright stars of the Baroque, have plenty to say on 20th-century repertoire (witness their excellent Britten series on Collins). Underpin them with the BBC Philharmonic and it might seem a magic formula. Ives’s unearthly The Unanswered Question holds few problems for instrumental players weaned on Maxwell Davies – no more than do the brilliant wind roulades of Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms. Deft BBC teamwork and a chamber articulation to woodwind and brass helps this Koussevitzky-commissioned masterpiece to shed its often hammy ‘big band’ sound, creeping closer to the subtle, leaner sonorities of his later choral works. It gains. The singing varies. Too many dynamic shifts sound prosaic or under-prepared; fortes are forced, with muddy results. The vocal blend (happier in lower voices) can seem haphazard and colours the Tippett, where the men’s roars – contrast the lovely, sensual soprano solo – seem crude. Get this disc, instead, for the rare, late Poulenc – his New York-commissioned Sept répons. It is a curiously under-recorded devotional work, bleeding with pathos yet pumping energy, its exoticism enhanced by slightly breathy, tender solos, and scintillatingly sung with just those crucial missing qualities of awe and freshness. A million times more refined than what goes before.
