Villa-Lobos: Missa Sao Sebastiao and other sacred music

Hyperion - CDH 55470
Corydon Singers
Corydon Orchestra / Matthew Best
Sacred choral music by Brazil’s most famous composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos, performed by one of Hyperion’s best-loved recording groups.

These works were written as part of Villa-Lobos’s grand plan to revitalize music education in his native country. The human voice, an instrument acquired free of charge by every person in the nation, was seen by Villa-Lobos as the principal performing medium, particularly in massed choral form. Canto orfeônico (choral singing) became the order of the day. Among the performances Villa-Lobos directed was the Brazilian premiere of Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli. This led to him to write his own a cappella Mass, Missa Sao Sebastiao, St Sebastian being the patron saint of Rio de Janeiro, the major work on this album

In fact The Missa Sao Sebastiao had not been a sudden isolated instance of sacred composition from Villa-Lobos. From his earliest years as a serious composer he had written many motets. The Corydon Singers perform a rich selection of these.

‘The whole disc is a bright feather in the Corydon cap’

(Organists’ Review)

‘Une qualité d’interprétation en tous points remarquable …ceux qui aiment la musique chorale seront tout simplement comblés’

(Diapason, France)
