Product Description
We released Volume I of the Robert Shaw Chorale’s Christmas Hymns and Carols to rapturous response from lovers of Christmas music everywhere, so following it up with Volume II was a natural. Indeed, this second volume of Christmas carols—presented, like on its predecessor, in a series of medleys—perfectly complements the first volume by casting its eye a bit farther afield in search of repertoire suited for the brilliant arrangements of Fred Waring protégé Shaw and his longtime collaborator, Alice Parker. So, instead of the well-worn “O Come All Ye Faithful”/”The First Nowell”/”O Little Town of Bethlehem” medley that led off Volume I, here a medley of “I Saw Three Ships”/”O Tannenbaum”/”Allon, Gay Gay Bergeres”/”The Holly and the Ivy” leads off, followed by “Fum, Fum, Fum”/”Hacia Belén”/”Ya Viene La Vieja”/”La Virgen Lava Pañales,” and more relatively unfamiliar fare, all flawlessly and fervently rendered by The Chorale. Though this 1952 record was meant as a follow-up to Volume I, and, unlike that album, did not enjoy a stereo re-recording later in the decade (it was reissued in mono with new album art in 1957; the stereo version of Volume I is the version we reissued in 2016), it more than holds its own against its forebear; and, since that record is generally reckoned among the greatest Christmas albums of all time, this one would rank right up there, too. Includes the original and reissue album art, with liner notes by Sean Cogan; Maria Triana’s remastering at Battery Studios in New York lends a little holiday luster to every note. CD debut of a Christmas choral masterpiece!
Product Description
A Robert Shaw Christmas: Angels on High
In this beautifully chosen program of mostly a cappella arrangements, Robert Shaw and the Robert Shaw Chamber Singers deliver the Christmas story in tones of gentle and moving splendor. The carols and sacred settings recorded here are all of an intimate sort, and the rapturous, gently expressive realizations Shaw and his singers give them prove unfailingly appealing. Particularly moving is the newest work on the disc, a setting of "O magnum mysterium" by the American composer Morten Lauridsen. Franz Biebl's "Ave Maria" is another gem, as is the arrangement by Healy Willan of the French carol "What Is This Lovely Fragrance?" The offering includes a pair of chorales from Bach's Christmas Oratorio and two wonderful Christmas works by Benjamin Britten: "A Hymn to the Virgin" and A Ceremony of Carols, both well done, even if the sound of sopranos and altos (rather than boy trebles) in the latter takes some getting used to. --Ted Libbey

Daily Reads: How Disney and Marvel Killed Happily Ever Afters, Why the Coen Brothers' Movies Make Everyone Want to Rank Them, and More

Unfinished Business: How Disney and Marvel Killed Happily Ever Afters. Our neverending movie franchise culture has many unfortunate byproducts, but none more obvious than the noticeable lack of endings. Seeing as every Marvel and Disney movie has the inherent duty to set up the sequel in the not-so-distant future, no movie can be treated as a discrete unit and can't quite have an ending but rather a stopping point. The Guardian's Nicholas Barber examines how Disney and Marvel killed "happily ever afters. It's not just Han and Leia who aren't being allowed to live happily ever after, either. More and more film franchises are spoiling their heroes' retirements, thus snatching away the simple pleasure we once got from picturing their pipe-and-slippers contentment. Sylvester Stallone had wrapped up the story of his punch-drunk alter ego numerous times over the decades, but 2006's "Rocky Balboa" seemed to be the real deal. But Ryan Coogler's torch-passing drama yanks the champ away from his cosy neighborhood restaurant, inflicts cancer on him, and forces him to watch as his protegé embarks on a series of fights as bloodily punishing as his own. Both Rocky and Han Solo must have been tempted to quote Michael Corleone in "The Godfather: Part III": "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. " Have we reached the end of endings. In "The Dark Knight Rises," Bruce Wayne turned his back on both Batman and Gotham City so he could swan around Florence with Selina Kyle. Similarly, "Iron Man 3" was the third part of a trilogy, and it was just as valedictory as "The Dark Knight Rises. Like the characters in "Star Wars," "Iron Man" and his buddies are owned by Disney, which means that Iger gets to decide their destiny. "[With] Marvel, you're dealing with thousands and thousands of characters," he said last week. "That will go on for ever. " There are some superhero fans, I know, who will be overjoyed by this promise, but I'd argue that the true fan would prefer his or her idols to have some well-earned downtime. For instance, the last "X-Files" film had Mulder and Scully living together in a secluded cottage, which is just what the pair's devotees had always prayed for. But now a new television series of "The X-Files" has begun, and in it we learn that – surprise surprise – Mulder and Scully have long since split. Source: News
