The music of medieval Iberia, from the province of Andalusia or al-Andalus, has survived in oral traditions from all three of its constituent groups, Arab, Jewish, and Christian. This opens up possibilities for reconstructing quite a large body of music, although of course the uncertainties increase along with the variety of information. This release by the Spanish early music group Capilla Antigua de Chinchilla focuses on Sephardic vocal music in the Ladino language.

Sir Andrew Davis takes his multi-award-winning Elgar discography to the next level with breathtaking interpretations of Falstaff, Elgars most accomplished and characteristic work, and several orchestral songs, with exemplary support from the BBC Philharmonic, all recorded in surround-sound. Owing to its technical challenges and more complex harmonic language, the composer always had a high opinion of Falstaff, saying that he had enjoyed writing it more than any other music I have ever composed and perhaps for that reason it may prove to be among my best efforts.

In a society that has seen epochal change over a few generations, what remains to hold people together and offer them a sense of continuity and meaning? In Songs for Dead Parents, Erik Mueggler shows how in contemporary China death and the practices surrounding it have become central to maintaining a connection with the world of ancestors, ghosts, and spirits that socialism explicitly disavowed.

The idea of this CD was born out of conversations two years ago with my friend and colleague, the pianist Pietro Massa. One of his numerous musical and artistic goals is the dissemination of quality lesser-known and seldom-played repertoire. His curiosity and interest in Serbian art song has encouraged me to personally assemble a CD of vocal music drawing from a beautiful and rich repertory, which is unfortunately both underrepresented in the recording catalog as well as on the concert stage.

Funeral Winds - Sinister Creed (2018)
Netherlands | MP3 CBR 320 Kbps | 82 MB
Black Metal | Label : Avantgarde Music

Sinister Creed is Funeral Winds fourth album in twentyseven years. Despite not being a very prolific act, Hellchrist Xul’s creature is one of the first black metal bands ever to come out of the Netherlands underground. Even if released via Avantgarde Music, expect no avantgarde music here: Sinister Creed is pure rage coming from the early Nineties, a way to channel evil with ice-cold riffs, neverending up-tempos and ravaging shrieks. Simple as that. Funeral Winds are devoted to master the black arts, not some hip fine tune, therefore there is only one thing you can expect from the Dutch duo: total devastation. For all those who miss the way things used to be almost thirty years ago, Sinister Creed is a beacon in the dark, or better, a pit of darkness in this ever-lit world.

Genre: Pop, Rock / Label: Ace Records

It wasn't too difficult to pull another collection of prime Jackie DeShannon copyrights together in order to assemble an eagerly-anticipated second volume of Jackie's songs for Ace's Songwriter Series. As ever, the hardest job for the compilers was to decide what to include now and what to save for another time. She Did It is a fine follow-up to Break-A-Way and will appeal to everyone who bought and raved about the first volume. As before, Ace have chosen songs for She Did It which cover Jackie's whole career. The final listing was approved by Ace fan-and-friend Jackie and includes several tracks of her suggestions. In the course of research, Ace have unearthed many rare gems that have not been on CD before and only two tracks have appeared previously on Ace.
