RECORDING OF THE MONTH Roger Sacheverell COKE (1912-1972) Preludes, Variations - Simon Callaghan (piano) rec. 2014 SOMM CÉLESTE [SG] An exciting discovery. Simon Callaghan proves a persuasive advocate for these rarely heard piano pieces.

Jehan de LESCUREL (b. late 13th Century) Chansons and Dit - Ensemble Syntagma rec. 2013 EDITION FACSIMILE [BW] Mainly for specialists but the general listener should find much to enjoy.

Henryk WIENIAWSKI (1835-1880) Fantaisie brillante sur “Faust” Gounod, Violin Concerto 2 - Anna Maria Staskiewicz (violin) Henryk Wieniawski Lublin PO/Piotr Wijatkowski rec. 2010 DUX [BR] A very good romantic violin album played marvelously, and also a tourism brochure for Lublin.

Frank MARTIN (1890-1974) Mass Alonso LOBO (1555-1617) Lamentationes Ieremiae Prophetae Herbert HOWELLS (1892-1983) Requiem -Cambridge Chorale/Julian Wilkins rec. Église St-Laurent, Roujan, France, 2010 CAMBRIDGE CHORALE [DCh] Beautiful, deeply-felt devotional music in a rather unusual combination of compositions.

Franz SCHUBERT (1797-1828) Symphonies, Masses 5 & 6, Alfonso und Estrella - Christian Elsner (tenor) Bernarda Fink (mezzo) Berliner PO/Nikolaus Harnoncourt rec. 2003-06 BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER RECORDINGS BD-A & CD[MC] Harnoncourt carries the listener along on an enthralling journey.

Cynthia's Revels Flautadors Recorder Qt, Leo Chadburn (recorder) rec. 2014 FIRST HAND RECORDS [JV] A beautiful and varied programme including some less familiar pieces and all in splendid performances.

Power of Life Christopher Herrick (organ) rec. 2014 HYPERION [DC] Meaty and richly entertaining.
