Purcell, Henry - Strike the Viol - Ensemble

Post by benZene » Wed Feb 29, 2012 6:11 pm

Another virtual ensemble from my archives.
It is the famous air from the Ode for Queen Mary's Birthday (Come Ye Sons of Art).
Strike the Viol was composed for countertenor, two flutes and continuo.
I posted that some times ago on the french forum :http://www.guitareclassiquedelcamp.com/ ... 98&t=17656, in a time when i experimented a lot transcribing orchestral scores. Up to ten or twelve guitar voices :? , with chorals from Bach Cantatas. It was probably a bit cheeky, but for me a real pleasure to dive into those beautiful harmonies.
I recorded that with five tracks, spliting the continuo, and playing those voices pizzicato, a strip of rag near the bridge to mute the strings.
For the bass voice of the continuo, the grave E string was lowered to C, to preserve a few fine effects Purcell had placed in his music.
I recorded the two flute voices in separate tracks, don't remember anymore why, probably a matter of resonance.
So, the recording is made of five tracks.
For those who dont have access to the french forum, i post here the recording (5 voices):
Purcell_StrikeTheViol.mp3
And if you want to give it a try, the defective mixings:
  • Without the melody:
    Purcell_StrikeTheViol_2345.mp3
    Without the first flute:
    Purcell_StrikeTheViol_1345.mp3
    Without the second flute:
    Purcell_StrikeTheViol_1245.mp3
    Without the continuo:
    Purcell_StrikeTheViol_1235.mp3
    Without the bass:
    Purcell_StrikeTheViol_1234.mp3
The score :
Purcell_StrikeTheViol.pdf
For the fun of it: i recently found on youtube something quite more irreverent that my modest do-it-yourself orchestra : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bamXG2a ... re=related. Isn't it worth a look ? :bye:
