Peter Warlock - Capriol Suite (COMPLETE) for String Orchestra
Peter Warlock - Capriol Suite (COMPLETE) for String Orchestra Played by the European Community Chamber Orchestra conducted by Eivind Aadland. Philip Heseltine (Peter Warlock 1894-1930) was born in London and lost his father as a child. His mother remarried and returned to her native Wales, living at Cefn Bryntalch Hall, Abermule, near Newtown, Montgomeryshire, the family home of her second husband, Walter Buckley Jones. Philip's education was mainly classical, including studies at Eton College, at Christ Church, Oxford (for one year), and at University College London (one term). In music, he was mostly self-taught, studying composition on his own from the works of composers he admired, notably Frederick Delius, Roger Quilter and Bernard van Dieren. Nevertheless, one of the masters at Eton, Colin Taylor, had introduced him to some of the modern masters which made a marked impression on him. He was also strongly influenced by Elizabethan music and poetry as well as by Celtic culture (he studied the Cornish, Welsh, Irish, Manx, and Breton languages). It was the move to Wales, occasioned by his mother's remarriage, that was the spark for this; only the working classes spoke Welsh but Philip, never one to shy away from the unconventional, set about learning it with vigour. Heseltine wrote his earliest mature compositions, published to critical acclaim under the newly adopted pseudonym Peter Warlock, following his sojourn in Ireland of 1917-1918. They were followed by a period of concentration on musical journalism; for a while, he was ...

Angel by Sarah McLachlan McLachlan is a singer-songwriter from Canada and has sold over 40 million albums despite being relatively unknown in certain parts of the world. The song was first heard on her album 'Surfacing' in 1998, and would later be used for the 'City of Angels' soundtrack. The song is about Jonathan Melvoin - the keyboardist from the Smashing Pumpkins, who died of a heroin overdose in 1996. Cover examples: Katherine Jenkins, Yulia, Angelis May It Be by Enya The lady who needs no introduction has often been approached to score films (most famously for 'Titanic') and she readily declines, but she offered up this gem for Peter Jackson's 'Lord of The Rings' debut. Cover examples: Hayley Westenra, Angelis, Celtic Woman Nella Fantasia by Sarah Brightman This is an adaptation of Ennio Morricone's 'Gabriel's Oboe' from the film 'The Mission'. Brightman was a fan of the piece, and was desperate to adapt it. For years Brightman wrote to Morricone begging permission to turn it into a song, but he kept refusing. Determined, Brightman continued until he finally relented. Apparently because he was sick and tired of her asking. Brightman wrote the lyrics in English and had them translated into Italian. It's now one of the most covered songs in crossover. Cover examples: Russell Watson, Paul Potts, Il Divo Pie Jesu by Sarah Brightman and Paul Miles-Kingston ...
