Cantiones sacrae volume 1

(Code: A121900512)
All the works of the 3 volumes of « Cantiones sacrae in honorem Thomas Tallis » by Johan Duijck are performed by The Flemish Radio Choirs, conducted by the composer. In 1575 Thomas Tallis (1505-1585) and William Byrd (ca 1543 - 1623), friends as well as composers, jointly published their 34 “Cantiones Sacrae”. Each wrote 17 motets on the occasion of the 17th year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England.I thought it was a good idea, in the wake of these illustrious predecessors, to venture 17 Cantiones Sacrae in honorem Thomas Tallis (opus 26; 2006-2008). I organized these 17 motets in three books. The first, dedicated to Kamiel Cooremans, consists of 5 motets for mixedchoir. For the second book I let myself be inspired by Noëlle Schepens, whose magnificent girls’ choir “Amarylca” is a delight to work with; it consists of 7 motets for equal voices (high or low, ad libitum). The third book another 5 motets for mixed choir, I dedicated to Mark Goossens, pianist, conductor, and faithful friend for ages.The texts were chosen for general liturgical purposes. Most motets can be sung in any kind of service, be it a baptism, a wedding or a funeral. They can be sung separately, grouped per book, or even in other sequences thought desirable. The style of their composition, which the pundits are liable to dub neo-renaissance, evolves over the three books from seemingly accessible to provocative. A concert performance of all 17 motets in succession will likely reveal how much unity the various themes have to connect the various motets, however different in character they may be.Of course the final motet (in volume 3), Spem in alium, is a tribute to Thomas Tallis’s well-known eponymous 40-part motet. Besides the main themes of the complete Cantiones Sacrae it quotes the main theme of Tallis’s Spem in alium. The final chord has 17 notes. Ad libitum. Which is just as well !Johan DUIJCK
