Freya Parr Five essential works by Orlando Gibbons

Rating: 
0

This is the record of John

Gibbons’s beautiful anthem, setting verses from St John’s Gospel, is a gentle narrative for alto solo and chorus and shows the composer’s gift for dramatic writing.

Recommended recording:
Robin Blaze (countertenor), Winchester Cathedral Choir/David Hill
Helios CDH55228

 

 

O Clap your hands

Written to celebrate his doctorate from Oxford in 1622, this masterful, exciting anthem written for eight parts contains wonderful imitative writing, sprightly cross-rhythms and superb antiphony.

Recommended recording:
Choir of King’s College, Cambridge/Stephen Cleobury
EMI Classics 394 4302

Fantasy of foure parts

Among his greatest works for the keyboard, Gibbons’s Fantasy is widein scope, and ebbs and flows in an almost Romantic fashion. Surprising, pleasing music.

Recommended recording:
Christopher Hogwood
Explore Records EXP0006

In nomines

Scored for four or five viols, these chamber works use, like the Fantasy above, intricate, sophisticated counterpoint, but they make for utterly delightful and hypnotic listening.

Recommended recording:
Phantasm
Avie AV0032

 

 

The Short Service

A different side to Gibbons. This attractively straightforward setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis is highly melodic, prayerful and atmospheric.

Recommended recording:
Oxford Camerata/Jeremy Summerly
Naxos 8.553130

jfl On ClassicsToday: Mahler Third with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra & Jonathan Nott

The Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra’s Mahler Cureby Jens F. Laurson on March 27, 2019 in Concerts, ReviewsMusikverein, Vienna; Saturday, March 16, 2019—There is either a glut of Mahler on the concert circuit or you can’t ever get enough Mahler. There is no middle ground. Mahler is appealing stuff on many levels, not the least that you can easily impress with the music at rather less rehearsal

Being record collectors ourselves, we’ve paid our fair share of hefty sums for long sought after records that were pressed in shamefully low numbers. We were curious to see if anything we’ve purchased ranked amongst the highest priced items that have sold in the Discogs Marketplace since we launched in 2005.

For the sake of maintaining our relationships, we won’t say whether or not any of our purchases made the cut, but we thought you might be interested in seeing this list of the most expensive records sold.

Our criteria includes albums that were actually sold and paid for on Discogs. All prices have been converted to USD based on exchange rates at the time of sale. Duplicates are included – you will notice some albums appear more than once.

Every one of these has a unique story that contributes to them being worth a fortune. We have included a link to each release where you can find release notes that will help shed light on their value.

A few interesting trends we noticed while pulling these stats:

  • 17 bands and musicians appear on this list more than once. Some, like The Beatles, who appear four times, will be familiar to most. Others, like funk group Mistafide, are niche one-hit wonders.
  • The Discogs Marketplace connects buyers and sellers from around the world. 34% of these releases were purchased by collectors using EUR, 33% USD, 27% GBP, 3% CHF, and 3% JPY.
  • 67 unique labels make appearances on this list. The most frequent are Parlophone and Deram, which each notched four appearances.
  • Collectors are not only looking for full albums and 12″ vinyl. There are no fewer than 35 7″ records present.

We’ve talked about this before – heck, we even wrote an article diving into the trend – in-demand records really are getting more expensive.

And if you need any more proof that rare vinyl is getting more expensive, take a peek at what this post looked like when it was first published in 2010.

Do you notice any other interesting trends? Let us and fellow collectors know in the comments. We also publish a most expensive records list each month. You can see all the recent additions here.

If you have any records that you are considering selling, know that you can use Discogs to connect with buyers from around the world. Check out how to use Discogs to price and sell your vinyl records online.

Being record collectors ourselves, we’ve paid our fair share of hefty sums for long sought after records that were pressed in shamefully low numbers. We were curious to see if anything we’ve purchased ranked amongst the highest priced items that have sold in the Discogs Marketplace since we launched in 2005.

For the sake of maintaining our relationships, we won’t say whether or not any of our purchases made the cut, but we thought you might be interested in seeing this list of the most expensive records sold.

Our criteria includes albums that were actually sold and paid for on Discogs. All prices have been converted to USD based on exchange rates at the time of sale. Duplicates are included – you will notice some albums appear more than once.

Every one of these has a unique story that contributes to them being worth a fortune. We have included a link to each release where you can find release notes that will help shed light on their value.

A few interesting trends we noticed while pulling these stats:

  • 17 bands and musicians appear on this list more than once. Some, like The Beatles, who appear four times, will be familiar to most. Others, like funk group Mistafide, are niche one-hit wonders.
  • The Discogs Marketplace connects buyers and sellers from around the world. 34% of these releases were purchased by collectors using EUR, 33% USD, 27% GBP, 3% CHF, and 3% JPY.
  • 67 unique labels make appearances on this list. The most frequent are Parlophone and Deram, which each notched four appearances.
  • Collectors are not only looking for full albums and 12″ vinyl. There are no fewer than 35 7″ records present.

We’ve talked about this before – heck, we even wrote an article diving into the trend – in-demand records really are getting more expensive.

And if you need any more proof that rare vinyl is getting more expensive, take a look at what this post looked like when it was first published in 2010.

Do you notice any other interesting trends? Let us and fellow collectors know in the comments. We also publish a most expensive records list each month. You can see all the recent additions here.

If you have any records that you are considering selling, know that you can use Discogs to connect with buyers from around the world. Check out how to use Discogs to price and sell your vinyl records online.
