Jan Garbarek / The Hilliard Ensemble - Officium Novum album FLAC

More than 15 years separate the release of Jan Garbarek's best-selling album Officium from his Officium Novum. The newer release, like the original, features Garbarek on soprano and tenor saxophones and the male vocal quartet, the Hilliard Ensemble. In both albums, Garbarek takes preexisting vocal pieces and embroiders them with his soulful obbligato contributions. The chaste austerity of the men's voices and the reedy plaintiveness of the saxophone make for a surprisingly effective pairing.

Officium is an album by Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek and early music vocal group the Hilliard Ensemble, that was released in 1994. The album was recorded at the monastery of Propstei St. Gerold in Austria. The album starts and ends with music by the sixteenth-century Spanish composer Cristobal de Morales.

Officium Novum's repertoire is the quintet's most intriguing yet, finding a nexus point where Garbarek and Vardapet can coexist with Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, whose "Most Holy Mother of God" represents the album's spiritual high point, and 13th century composer Pérotin, whose "Alleluia, Nativitas" represents Garbarek and The Hilliard Ensemble at its most buoyant. If music is meant to be a transporting experience, then Officium Novum is Jan Garbarek and The Hilliard Ensemble at its transcendent best.

Officium Novum completes a stunning trilogy that began back in 1993 when Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek and British vocal quartet The Hilliard Ensemble first collaborated on the original Officium album. Released the next year, it blended pure unaccompanied voices with soaring saxophone on a programme of medieval church music. Unpredictably, that unique combination was an immediate success. The album became one of the biggest sellers on the ECM label and hit the charts in several countries.

The inspired bringing together of Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble has resulted in consistently inventive music making since 1993. The unprecedented Officium album, with Garbarek’s saxophone as a free-ranging ‘fifth voice’ with the Ensemble, gave the first indications of the musical scope and emotional power of this combination. Mnemosyne (1998) took the story further, expanding the repertoire beyond ‘early music’ to embrace works both ancient and modern

The sound the Hilliard Ensemble makes has long been among the most distinctive in classical music. Their music-making became still more distinctive when they added an extra ingredient - the improvising of Jan Garbarek, the freewheeling Norwegian saxophonist. The year was 1994; the CD was Officium, in which plainchant and Renaissance motets melted together with Garbarek’s smoky blues.
