Catherine Anahid Berberian (July 4, 1925 – March 6, 1983) was an American soprano and composer. She interpreted contemporary avant-garde music composed, among others, by Luciano Berio, Bruno Maderna, John Cage, Henri Pousseur, Sylvano Bussotti, Darius Milhaud, Roman Haubenstock-Ramati, and Igor Stravinsky. She also interpreted works by Claudio Monteverdi, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Kurt Weill, Philipp Zu Eulenburg, arrangements of songs by The Beatles, and folk songs from several countries and cultures. As a composer, she wrote Stripsody (1966), in which she exploits her vocal technique using comic book sounds (onomatopoeia), and Morsicat(h)y (1969), a composition for the keyboard (with the right hand only) based on Morse code.

Monteverdi was a pioneer of the musical style we now call Baroque, but the Mass on this record is in classic Renaissance style and the music might have been written in the 1500s rather than the 1600s.

With The All-Baroque Box we realize one of our fondest dreams: harnessing the deep catalogue of Archiv Produktion (supplemented on occasion by Decca L oiseau lyre recordings) to create a comprehensive collection of great music from Monteverdi to Bach. The music ranges from huge Baroque (Missa Salisburgensis, Venetian polychoral, Charpentier Te Deum) to intimate Baroque (the Goldberg Variations, Bach cello suites, solo cantatas) overwhelming in its impact and emotional content.

“This large-scale live recording (Gardiner's second) was made in Venice's St Mark's Basilica. It captures the drama as well as the ceremonial aspect of the work, despite sometimes cloudy recorded sound.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide. “Gardiner's second [recording of the Vespers], spectacularly recorded live in St Mark's, has a punchy choral sound, near-operatic solo singing (Bryn Terfel and Alistair Miles are among the basses), emphatic enunciation, big contrasts and deliberate exploitation of the building's spaces. Its outright theatricality sets it apart from other performances.” Gramophone Magazine.

Reedition bienvenue avec un exellent son remastérisé de cette trés belle version de Gardiner d'un oratorio de Handel qui est une oeuvre singuliere au sein de la production de ce grand compositeur. L'Allegro, il Pensiero ed il Moderato est dans sa structure trés different de l'oratorio traditionnel et consiste en un assemblage assez libre de solos et de choeurs, mettant en scene 3 personnages allegoriques , un peu comme "il trionfo del tempo", mais chaque" personnage" est ici representé par plusieures voix. Exellent casting choisi par Gardiner au niveu des voix, d'ou emerge Patricia Kwella, dont la beauté et la pureté du timbre illumine cette tres belle oeuvre, proposée a un prix trés doux, aucune raison de passer à coté.
