Johnson - Tenor Stephen Roberts - Baritone Richard Hickox - Conductor City of London Sinfonia London Symphony Chorus Illustrations - St Paul's Cathedral, London - St Paul's Cathedral - information part Ill 'Old St Paul's' Main article: Old St Paul's Cathedral Old St Paul's prior to 1561, with intact spire The fourth St Paul's, known when architectural history arose in the 19th century as Old St Paul's, was begun by the Normans after the 1087 fire. Work took over 200 years, and a great deal was lost in a fire in 1136. The roof was once more built of wood, which was ultimately to doom the building. The church was consecrated in 1240, but a change of heart led to the commencement of an enlargement programme in 1256. When this 'New Work' was completed in 1314 — the cathedral had been consecrated in 1300 — it was the third-longest church in Europe. Excavations by Francis Penrose in 1878 showed it was 585 feet (178 m) long and 100 feet (30 m) wide (290 feet or 87 m across the transepts and crossing), and had one of Europe's tallest spires, at some 489 feet (149 m). By the 16th century the building was decaying. Under Henry VIII and Edward VI, the Dissolution of the Monasteries and Chantries Acts led to the destruction of interior ornamentation and the cloisters, charnels, crypts, chapels, shrines, chantries and other buildings in St Paul's Churchyard. Many of these former ...

Londonderry Air - Chamber Strings - Sydney Youth Orchestras - Autumn
Londonderry Air - Chamber Strings - Sydney Youth Orchestras - Autumn Londonderry Air (also known as Danny Boy), performed by Chamber Strings ensemble. Most of the musicians are between 9 and 13 years old. Best viewed larger by clicking the "480p" button. The conductor, Nicholas Tester walks onto stage immediately after this performance. Londonderry Air is an Irish anthem, full of depth and melancholic tenderness. It is very popular among the Irish and very well known throughout the world. The tune is played as the Northern Ireland anthem at the Commonwealth Games. Danny Boy is one of Ireland's best-loved songs and is often performed today as an emblem of Irishness. The song is as much a touchstone of identity among Catholics and republicans—who may sing additional verses about a pike-bearing rebel dying to set Ireland free—as it is among Protestants and loyalists—who are more likely to refer to it as Londonderry Air, a name it acquired in the late nineteenth century. Recorded live on 20 March 2010 at the Sydney Youth Orchestras SYO Autumn Concert at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Australia. The Orchestra's website is www.syo.com.au . .

Cello Journey #26, Faure Sicilienne
Cello Journey #26, Faure Sicilienne Cello Journey CD: cdbaby.com Cello Journey DVD: cdbaby.com Visit the website: cellojourney.com In this episode we play the Sicilienne by the French composer Gabriel Faure. I recently went on a trip to Quebec and had a chance to eat some great French meals. As a result, I did a bit of French cooking myself. I noticed that the common theme in this type of cooking is how ingredients tend to fit well together. A sauce will fit everything else that is on the plate. Flavors and textures go in and out of each other to create a greater whole. This piece is similar in that its melodies fade in and out of each other. Harmonies, colors and textures blend well together and undergo subtle changes. I hope you can sense that in the music.
Cello Journey #24, Schumann Fantasiestucke No.1
Cello Journey #24, Schumann Fantasiestucke No.1 Cello Journey CD: cdbaby.com Cello Journey DVD: cdbaby.com Visit the website: cellojourney.com In this episode we play the first of three Fantasiestucke (Fantasy Pieces) by Robert Schumann. This piece was originally written for clarinet and piano but I think it sounds good on the cello. Schumann often wrote sets of miniatures that each have their own mood. In this one there is some tension between triplets (three notes per beat) in the piano and duplets (two notes per beat) in melodies in both the cello and piano. This adds unrest to this emotional and romantic piece. We hope you enjoy it.
Cello Journey #29, Thais Meditation
Cello Journey #29, Thais Meditation Cello Journey CD: cdbaby.com Cello Journey DVD: cdbaby.com Visit the website: cellojourney.com I thought I would put up two versions of the same episode. It is difficult to pick one sometimes. There may be a different feeling in each. Let me know what you think. In this episode we play the Meditation from the Opera Thais by Jules Massenet. The Thais comes from an interlude towards the end of the opera. It is usually played on the violin. It is marked Andante Religioso and there is a reflective mood throughout. This piece is special to me because, over the years, my mother has played it in church on the violin. I wanted to do a good job with it. We hope you enjoy it.
