16 Flavors, 4 Seasons

Listen O Solitude! my sweetest choice Henry Purcell/Alfred Deller

Lyric: Katherine Philips

O solitude, my sweetest choice!
Places devoted to the night,
Remote from tumult and from noise,
How ye my restless thoughts delight!
O solitude, my sweetest choice!
O heav’ns! what content is mine
To see these trees, which have appear’d
From the nativity of time,
And which all ages have rever’d,
To look today as fresh and green
As when their beauties first were seen.
O, how agreeable a sight
These hanging mountains do appear,
Which th’ unhappy would invite
To finish all their sorrows here,
When their hard fate makes them endure
Such woes as only death can cure.
O, how I solitude adore!
That element of noblest wit,
Where I have learnt Apollo’s lore,
Without the pains to study it.
For thy sake I in love am grown
With what thy fancy does pursue;
But when I think upon my own,
I hate it for that reason too,
Because it needs must hinder me
From seeing and from serving thee.
O solitude, O how I solitude adore!

Alfred Deller CBE (31 May 1912 – 16 July 1979), an English singer, was one of the main figures in popularizing the use of the countertenor voice in Renaissance and Baroque music.
Deller was born in Margate, a seaside resort in Kent. As a boy, he sang in his local church choir. When his voice broke, he continued singing in his high register, eventually settling as a countertenor. Throughout the 19th century, it was only in the tradition of all-male cathedral choirs that the countertenor voice had survived. Deller was himself successively a member of the choirs of Canterbury and St. Paul’s Cathedrals (1940-47 and 1947-62, respectively). He emerged as a soloist from this choral tradition, largely due to the admiration of the composer Michael Tippett, who heard him while at Canterbury and recognized the unique beauty of his voice. Tippett introduced him to the public as a countertenor, rather than a male alto. He also became better known with a radio broadcast (on the BBC’s new "Third Programme") of Henry Purcell’s Come ye Sons of Art. He concentrated on popularizing and recording the music of English Baroque and Renaissance music by composers such as John Dowland and Purcell.
Deller’s voice sounded remarkably high. Misconceptions about the countertenor voice were common at the time Deller was first gaining significant notice as a singer, which was only a matter of decades after the last castrati had died; Michael Chance tells the story that once, a French woman, upon hearing Deller sing, exclaimed "Monsieur, vous êtes eunuque"—to which Deller replied, "I think you mean ‘unique,’ madam."
He formed the Deller Consort in 1948, a group dedicated to historically informed performance. The group significantly expanded popular notions of the Baroque repertoire, producing high-quality authentic "period performances" of the works of Bach, Handel, Purcell, Dowland, and even folk songs; the membership of the consort changed over the years. It included soprano Mary Thomas and, from 1964, Deller’s son, Mark Deller. (Mr. Deller’s other son, Simon, trained as a music teacher during the 1960s.) As well as directing the Consort, Deller also conducted some performances with chamber orchestras.
In 1960, Deller sang the role of Oberon in Benjamin Britten’s opera A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Britten wrote this role with Deller specifically in mind, although he was dropped from staged revivals of the work against the composer’s wishes, probably because of poor acting technique. He did record the opera, with the composer conducting.
Lutenist Desmond Dupré performed with him, initially as a guitarist; other accompanists included harpsichordist and musicologist Walter Bergmann. In later years, he worked with lutenist Robert Spencer and harpsichordists Harold Lester and William Christie. His recordings include the lute songs of Dowland, operas by Handel, Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, songs and semioperas by Purcell (such as The Fairy Queen), traditional English folk songs, works by Thomas Tallis, and the Bach alto repertoire. He recorded for HMV, Vanguard Classics, and Harmonia Mundi.
Deller died while working in Bologna, Italy.

El éxito de la aventura cisterciense explica Poblet. Cister es fundado en 1098, y Poblet en 1150, cuando todavía no han pasado cien años. Los siglos XII y XIII son fundamentales en la historia de nuestro monasterio. De hecho, ellos nos dejan acabadas las principales dependencias de la casa: un espacio, bello y funcional a la par, para la búsqueda de Dios, que nos ha llegado casi intacto en su totalidad. El XIV es todavía un siglo de grandes realizaciones, y también el del declive, lento pero indefectible. Se ha de decir que la documentación conocida sobre la vida privada de la comunidad de Poblet no refleja, a lo largo de los siglos, desviaciones notables del ideal inicial de los fundadores de Cister y, a su vez, de los fundadores de Poblet, provenientes de Fontfroide. De hecho, ésta, la auténtica historia de Poblet, aún no ha sido escrita ni seguramente lo será nunca; la de los monjes que, dia a dia, enfilando salmos, aseguraron el crecimiento y la continuidad de la casa, la domus Populeti. Podríamos explicar así la sucesión de los días y de los años que completan los siglos XV, XVI, XVII y XVIII: Poblet, la institución, la comunidad, sus monjes, buscan dar un nuevo rostro, formas diferentes a aquello que viven en la intimidad del propio corazón. Sin embargo, no siempre lo podrán hacer con la transparencia y el vigor del primer ideal. El siglo XIX, con una sociedad que experimenta cambios profundos, plantará, con el abandono y el progresivo expolio del monasterio desierto, la semilla de una futura recuperación. Una recuperación que también hará posible, con el retorno de los monjes el año 1940, la vuelta a una formas de vida más puras, más auténticas, más profundamente benedictinas y, por tanto, también más evangélicas. Los monjes actuales, herederos de los antiguos, nunca lo podremos agradecer suficientemente, porque la autenticidad es, quizás, uno de los valores más importantes que podemos y debemos ofrecer a los hombres y mujeres de nuestro tiempo.

44-84

44-84
Not Mr Whippy – but John’s Whippy – with an element of Disney theming. Reminds me of some friends who shared a house, the landlord had a van like this and they always referred to him as Mr Whippy – to the extent they couldn’t recall his real name and had to ask for Mr Whippy when Mrs Whippy came to the door. Rather oddly the house itself was in a street called Quality Street – and was named after one of the sweets – The Nutty Truffle. Although Googling this it looks like it was a load of old tosh – Nutty Truffle appears more in Cadbury’s Roses.
