Ola Gjeilo: Ubi Caritas
CWU Chamber Choir

Yes, this is the same work I posted this morning, but this time the composer improvises between each section.

Ola Gjeilo: Ubi Caritas
Phoenix Chorale

This uses only a portion of the full “Ubi Caritas”:

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exultemus, et in ipso jucundemur.
Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ’s love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.

Gidon Kremer may have issues with the Verbier Festival (I blogged only a very little about that here, but I just listened to the orchestra play an act of Walküre with Valery Gergiev, conductor, Frank van Aken (Siegmund), Eva-Maria Westbroek (Sieglinde), Matti Salminen (Hunding) and it was absolutely fantastic! I had recently subscribed to Medici TV for the year, and I’m very thankful I did. I’m really enjoying it. When they don’t have a live performance I can listen to, they have a multitude or recorded concerts to hear. It’s well worth the expense. For me, anyway!

But boy, these young musicians! Whoever was playing principal oboe was just wonderful … expressive with a great sound. I think it might be a young man by the name of Max Blair, but I can’t be certain. If I find out who it was for sure I’ll update this. The roster gives me this, but it’s just an alphabetical list:

Oboe
Max Blair, USA
Vincent Boilard, Canada
Vicente Castello Sansaloni, Spain
Jennifer Christen, USA

Flute, clarinet, and oboe trio between myself and some of my good friends. I love this piece because it’s so weird – but then I’ve always been impartial to 20th century music :)

… the work was a 20th century work, btw.

I just found an Oboe in my room…. I forgot I had one.

the english horn is like an oboe on steroids

Mickey & Minnie – Hansel and Gretel

And so I’ve decided to put a halt to the Saturday Morning Cartoon. I’m sure I could find more, but I’ve grown weary of the search, and sometimes I choose poorly. If you want to watch some oldies just go to YouTube and search on cartoons + “classical music” … you’ll probably find ‘em that way!

(Of course if I get too many “Shoot, we waited all week for these I might change my mind, but I have a sneakin’ suspicion only a very few really watched what I posted. Yes?)
