Doing an arrangement of Thomas Tallis is peace stem in Ali. Um, his 40 voice motet, each of the 40 parts played by one of the members of the quartet. There is another work of art directly inspired by this Thomas Tallis piece, And that is Janet Cardiff's sound installation called the 40 Voice, Motet. And it is literally just ah, set of 40 loud speakers set in a circle and the audience can wander in and among and around and back out again, while a recording of the Thomas Tallis piece plays it's a recording of Acquire a 40 voice choirs you, Khun! Walk right up to 10, or number three stand in front of his loudspeaker. Soprano number nine stand in front of her loud speaker, or, you know, just kind of wander through it. It's an extraordinary experience and unaccountably moving one. I know it doesn't sound. You know 40 speakers how moving in that bay, but that's that's all right. That's that's why she's an artist. So if you ever get the chance, Janet Cardiff's 40 voice motet absolutely worth checking out and along with the James MacMillan piece that we heard earlier, directly inspired by the Thomas Tallis work that we just heard played by the Kronos Quartet.

Of the Thomas Tallis work. In fact, the pieces are almost exactly the same length. But then, at the end, you get a little hint of the contemporary nature of MacMillan's music with some harmonic twists and turns that Thomas Tallis would never have anticipated. Or maybe what if he was Pretty avant garde guy for his day 450 years ago. Anyway. The plan was to perform the McMillan piece to premiere it on the same concert as the piece that inspired it. Thomas Tallis is Spam in Ah, Liam. But wouldn't you know it? The 450th anniversary fell in 2020, so the pandemic Ended that idea. However, the aura singers and Susie Digby did play both pieces as part of an extraordinary event that they did socially distanced safely spread from each other in the huge turbine hall at the Tate modern in London, which, if you've ever been there John is kind of an amazing place and almost like a cathedral to contemporary art.

Of Thomas Tallis writing his 40 voice. Motet specimen, Ali. Um So he came up with a 40 voice motet that he calls VD. Aquaman. I saw the water that the text is an Easter text for the sprinkling of the holy water. And just like Thomas Tallis. He is very sparing in when you get to hear all 40 lines of music at the same time. In fact, he kind of Took the Talis piece as the template for what he did in his own work. Although harmonically as the piece goes on, the very Renaissance sounding harmonies begin to get a little more hazy and impressionistic and the ending Has a neat little harmonic twist to it. Let's hear the group for whom it was written. The aura singers at Ohara conducted by Susie Digby and VIDDY Aquaman, a contemporary work written as a response to one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance by Scottish composer James MacMillan..

West African snap in the 1987 live version from jazz fest Berlin. Following that more music from the world saxophone quartet.

And then we'll wrap up this first set in London with New Baya Garcia and a piece called Stand with each other. That features not only her sax but also a number of vocalists who drawn a sort of Afro Caribbean tradition. So So that's it the end of the set, but it begins in New York with the lounge lizards. My my, my Girl Fairgrounds on I think I go my way by name. I think I get you. My girl, my girl. I see my mom. Bye. Bye. Give me Got it. Yes. Hey. Thank you.

The piece is called Stand with each other and it feature is Ms Maurice and Cassie Kinoshita, both of whom are Noted musicians on that same London jazz scene, sharing the vocal duties.

I lost australasia's a client. Reggie met jay z years before he became an star. This was back in the mid nineties. When jay which is some unknown rapper for marcy projects and jay was working with an unknown manager. A skinny kid from harlem with a big mouth a guy named dame dash. No one would give jay deal so damon. J jay decided to form their own label. Rockefeller records chelsea was the least likely to succeed in the school of you know rappers represent an emcee and hip hop artists and we had done a deal where philly will really had no leverage to get the the terms terms that jay z and his crew wanted the damon dash particularly. We couldn't get damon jaded. Talk to us about what happened next but here's reggie's explanation of how the deal you want. South damon to debut album sold over four hundred thousand copies in its first year. Uh when the money started to roll in the difference between net and gross became a big issue. I got left holding the bag blamed for the deal damon. Jay z. fired reggie and left. Oh saying woods to rub salt in the wound jay's next album album in my lifetime volume one. It went platinum initially. I was like well. This guy's not gonna make anyway. He's flashing. The pan sounds like a good two or three years like huck scott's getting big like when are they gonna go away. You know well. They're not going to go away because by the end of the nineties jade cemented himself as hip hop biggest star. He named dash bill rockefeller records into one of the music industry's. Most iconic labels abel's so after working with jay z net team four three four years like just being loyal to the guy that nobody wanted to sign find like knocking on every label store going from that to like osha. This guy is going to become the best fucking rap on the planet and you lose that is such a blow to to your ego to your confidence like i i got gunshots. Like what other client am.

"That is music from the Scottish composer and conductor, Sir, James MacMillan and his arrangement of Herta, which is a traditional song from the island of Herta part of the Saint Kilda archipelago, the most remote part of the British Isles well out into the Atlantic Ocean off the northwest coast of Scotland and those islands now officially uninhabited since nineteen thirty but Trevor Morrison the pianist that you heard in the first version of hurt they're keeping alive the tradition as he got it from one of the inhabitants of Herta in Saint Kilda islands. The album is called the lost songs of Saint Kilda and all of the the song titles, whatever they might have originally been Trevor Morrison either never knew or forgot over the years because the titles that have come to. To us are place names, like the island of Herta or Stac Lee, which will be hearing in a little bit. But the fact that we have these songs at all is is pretty extraordinary and when this album came out, it was kind of summertime hit over in the UK in the summer of two thousand sixteen because it's beautiful music. And the story is so compelling, and you know, we've got played on on the radio and people really responded, but this was not the first time that musicians had attempted to tell the story of Saint Kilda and the abandoning of those islands back in two thousand thirteen Alastair Roberts songwriter and the poet Robin Robertson got together to release their album called hurt us songs. And from that record will hear a piece called the white handled knife the lyrics here, which are, of course, poems are pretty remarkable in the way, they. They talk about the hardship of life there. But also, the kind of rough beauty of the islands and the birds which were basically what people lived off of and just as these albums can't really do anything more than give us echoes of the the people in the life on on Saint Kilda, this song gives us these kind of ghostly echoes of Alisdair Roberts voice, which is I think really kind of Irian and appropriate all at once. It is sung in English and the people who lived on Saint killed. It did not speak English. They spoke Gaelic so the instrumental tracks on this album are given Gallic titles, which is also appropriate and unfortunate for me. But I'll have a crack at this title. It's a piece called probably something like Lavina org, and it is played by the Celtic harpist Karinna Hewitt. So that instrumental piece from the Herta songs follows one of the actual songs sung.

"Of that recording is an amazing one as well. And you'll hear it on this edition of new sounds. I'm John Schaffer. Glad you've joined us. Let's begin with a song called Herta. The performer is a guy named Trevor Morrison as a boy during World War Two. He was moved for his own safety to an island off the coast of Scotland where he met a piano teacher that piano teacher was one of the former inhabitants of of Saint Kilda the Saint Kilda islands, and he was determined to pass on the music that he grew up with. So we passed it onto this young boy taught him how to play these songs on the piano fast forward to the first decade of this century. And a now aging and ailing Trevor Morrison is still playing these songs on the piano, the recording. That will here was made with a five dollar microphone. On on a not quite into piano in the old age home in Scotland where Trevor Morrison spent his final years, so there's something really poignant about these these performances, but they only make up half of the record lost songs. Saint kilda. The other half features the Scottish festival orchestra and the composer and conductor, Sir, James MacMillan, doing responses to and arrangements of these Trevor Morrison recordings, so let's begin with Herta as Trevor himself recorded it. And then we'll hear James MacMillan doing a chamber music version where he'd simply overlays the violin viola and cello on top of the Trevor Morrison recording a most unusual way of approaching it. But that's what they did on this record called lost songs of Saint Kilda..

"The upbeat on it. And you could kind of you know, you might be thinking. Yeah, I could do that. It's the kind of a pack Picasso. My three year old could see that. How was he trained? I think he had very very deep classical route. So he's one of those people who has got absolutely his classical chops down if you like comes from a tradition Webuye absolutely respectful of the classical things that we think about with me initially think classical music that became one of the founding fathers of American minimalism and has trained all over the world has been very very influential on all sorts of planes, not just the concert hall. But you know, you might hear his influence in film music in video soundtracks. And you know, it's that's a it's a good example of Steve Reich's piece. But everything just sounds like that that he does. But I just know that for a very sort of refreshing take on what classical music can be okay. That was November twenty six today. We're going to pop over to the twenty eighth of November you on one of my favorites. Well, you know, this is one of my favorite. Is happy accidents. I had no idea. This is a Nocturne by Frederic Chopin. So now, we back in the real sort of cool clinical sound world. Lyrically sumptuous, hyper ramonic- on the surface. I love the fact that classical music composers are kind of in conversation and dialogue with each other across space and time. So the first classical Nocturnes were written in the eighteenth century, actually by an Irish composer, call John field. He was one of the first people who took this form and yet composes throughout the areas and the ages have taken that and run with it and given their own stamp to it. And one of the things that I do in your one day in the book is is cross reference some of those things so that you can hear what twenty century female composer is doing with a Nocturne like to bring tobacco versus what Chopin does with it. But he is really the godfather the knocked-on Chopin because what he does just takes it onto a whole other level of BT. He kind of outcome is is if you like what everyone else does with his singular MU. Physical genius. And though it's very romantic on the surface as let's say, there's definitely darkness lurking. Robert Schumann memorably said guns buried and flowers, and I was such an incredible description. So he wrote twenty one Nocturnes this is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it too. And that piece composer, piano, right? It is indeed. Could probably riff on it with other instruments to but it kinda works so powerfully. And now we're going to go to the last day of November the thirtieth with someone who is contemporary. He is the contemporaries, another contemporary composer like Steve rice, James McMillan. He was born in nineteen fifty nine. He's a really towering presence in British musical life. So I chose this one force an Andrews day celebrated in the UK, James MacMillan, great great Scottish composer. And he's a really interesting one. You know, he's very engaged with real life, which you can't say for all classical raises. You know, there's this sort of idea of the lofty creatures elevated and doing nothing on this ivory tower and on a different plane from what real human beings are actually having to live through an enduring go through and Jason is not that kind of gets his hands dirty with the stuff of real life. He's on Twitter. He's talking about politics. He's talking about religion. I mean, really no go areas for reasons I have to say when I. I saw this. I saw social media presence. I did a double take weight someone. We're talking about today. Go check him back. I follow him on Twitter. He's absolutely brilliant, brilliant mind and very interesting on a number of topics. This is his setting of the Missouri. And there's a very famous setting of this by Allegra written centuries before and again a little bit like the not turn. I'm intrigued how contemporary composers and different voices will treat the same material. And that happened so much in classical music in a way that it often doesn't happen in pop say, you know, the same stuff gets rolled out and interpreted to compete in different ways. So his setting is I think incredibly haunting am I'm really intrigued by what I'm saying. As a kind of renaissance in sacred choral music, I've been doing some research about it. Spotify. For example, there are three hundred thousand playlists have sacred choral music, and the very same people that are driving a trend towards secularism in our society. If you look at the demographic tends to be the same. Group of people who are streaming music. I'm intrigued interesting. What does that say about us society that we no longer really have the presence of God for many people? They all but for a lot of people who identify not with any particular belief or even identify as atheist or agnostic are nevertheless still finding this sucker in the solace in this somehow, there's some sort of spiritual gift that's being delivered by sacred choral music. So I'm intrigued by that phenomenon. And this is a wonderful example of contemporary sacred choral music. Let's have a listen. Sweet..

And that piece composer, piano, right? It is indeed a four probably riff on it with other instruments to but it kinda works so powerfully. And now we're going to go to the last day of November the thirtieth with someone who is contemporary. He is contemporaries, another contemporary composer like Steve rice, James MacMillan. He was born in nineteen Fifty-nine. He's really towering presence in British musical life. So I chose this one force an Andrews day celebrated in the UK, James MacMillan. Great great Scottish composer. And he's a really interesting one. He's very engaged with real life, which you can't say for all classical says, you know, there's this sort of idea of these lofty creatures elevated and doing nothing on this ivory tower and on a different plane from what real human beings actually, having to live through an enduring go through and Jason is not that at all kind of gets his hands dirty with the stuff of real life. He's on Twitter. He's talking about politics. He's talking about religion. I mean, really no go areas for a lot of music. I have to say when I saw this. I saw social media friend did a double take someone. We're talking about today. Go check him out. I follow him on Twitter. He's absolutely brilliant, brilliant mind and very interesting on a number of topics. This is his setting of the Missouri. And there's a very famous setting of this by Allegra written centuries before and again a little bit like not turn. I'm intrigued how contemporary composers and different voices will treat the same material. And that happened so much in classical music in a way that often doesn't happen in pop. You know, the same stuff gets rolled out and interpreted completely different ways. So his setting is I think incredibly haunting am I'm really intrigued by what I'm saying. As a kind of renaissance in sacred choral music, I've been doing some research about it. Spotify. For example, there are three hundred thousand playlists that have sacred choral music in and the very same people that are driving a trend. Towards secularism in our society. If you look at the demographic tend to be the same group of people who are streaming music. I'm intrigue interesting. What does that say about us society that we no longer really have the presence of many people, they all, but for a lot of people who would identify not with any particular belief or even identify as atheist or agnostic are nevertheless still finding this sucker in this solace in this somehow, the some sort of spiritual gift as being delivered by sacred choral music. So I'm intrigued by that phenomenon. And this is a wonderful example of contemporary sacred choral music. Let's have a listen..

"Morning. Everybody is TJ. Charlemagne guy. We are the breakfast club. We got a special guest in the building. Couple of weeks. Yes. Welcome, sir. What's going on? So how you feeling, sir? I feel great. You gotta EP outsmarts than you could have done so much that planned already. Yeah. I had a project in the word some I mean, essentially just being like, I'm back on my rat. Then doing movies for some time. What do your fingers? Watching the news. That was a big move to appreciated that reason I appreciated that because I feel like people should be held accountable. And I feel like people are just saying whatever they want nowadays because the social media and act like people aren't even humid just in case allegedly. So whatever happened, I commend Netzer. Let's get right into it. Because we've been watching this whole back and forth with you UN Eminem. Did you anticipate like? Say about you or anything because there's been some he should said a six years ago. What are you waiting for six years ago? Truth be told we handled it behind the scenes read six years ago. No, he he. No, he he's reclusive. We can't find him. So we weeded we didn't speak. I spoke to Paul Rosenberg in his team. Because that is as as man to man as it gets with him. You know what I'm saying? So what I had said it all started with the daughter thing. So what what did you say his daughter got him? So mad. You're did you say, you know, what I said you have to live for that? Eighteen sixteen. That one. I didn't know how she was all the headlines said was this person that we had known to records has as all grown up. That's the headline. I saw I made a comment. You know, I didn't feel like it was disrespectful, but I'm a father. I have a nine year old daughter one hundred percent and man-to-man I'll tell you. I apologize tweet down short. But public apology. Come on. Have you felt like he was wrong? Because we're talking about the same guy. It's on dead people and Christopher Reeves is in a wheelchair. Yes. So I mean, I guess it's it was it was a silly comment to step started all of this at some silly to trip on I get I get it. If it was like, you know, gruesome words, where user like there was you know, sexual implications in it. He just says she was hot. That was done. You spoke to Rosenberg. You took the tweet down. You probably guys behind the scenes you thought it was done. So that's, you know, machine gun R Kelly line. No, no, I say forty five year. That's that's the thing. We had settled it behind the scenes, and then as I continued to try move by my career you start your one of these like funny low robots, you're right. You know, why can't I go up here? And then also you can't just minimize it to shave forty five. You gotta think about Eminem is in a scope machine gun Kelly Interscope. This man is brought hundreds of millions of dollars to that building. I'm new it's my first album there. I just came in not only did that happen. But at the same time a yellow for beatha, yellow wolf is an Interscope artists and he's up under. Right. So the building automatically is like this box you out. Well, I mean, I have my loyalists and the he has his loyalist fine. I think that's a little difficult for new artists to have to overcome. Okay, though. But the problem comes when people that are assigned to work for me. Aren't working and they're picking sides. And then the people that I'm supposed to depend on to get the help my narrative, Tommy look. In my opinion. Do you drink a non player to kill you? Okay. Par Zetterberg make a call and tell them to shelf your project. No comment. What what what what Eminem said? No, this is this is actually fine. Eminem said wasn't true. Was that? He did it make a call in regards to the daughter situation. And you know, that was false Jimmy dean amp af- conference called me at nine in the morning with multiple other people, and I was a conversation that happened at three in the morning the previous night with harp Pierre James cruise Paul Rosenberg, James MacMillan. So am lied. He did talk the puff off the puck. Well, maybe we don't speak to him. We don't know where he is. We don't speak to him we speak to his spokespeople. And I'm speaking on the world. You know what I'm saying? I don't even know why was writing for this, man. This is a person who won't even show up to do a real interview, meaning that sway works shave, Forty-five sausages. It's a little weird, man. I I'm a I'm a I'm a man of the people vulnerable, dude. I don't mind, you know, put myself out there. Now, people are saying that this whole thing is a ploy that Interscope using the help you sell records, man. That'd be great. That'd be a big help. You guys have the same producer on both of your record. Because I want to equal playing ra-. I went to I took. It's an equal playing rooms. I mean, let's let's also say like it is you took two weeks. I took two days you used the j track. I use the Ronnie j track use the million dollar studio. I use address room before soundcheck. Well, I think he was contemplating his his doll process was I don't wanna make you any bigger is what he said. I mean, that's another funny narrative that I here I've sold over twenty million records for real right now as me as machine ten movies four of which come out December to April. It's very hard for me to accept that. Like this career just out of nowhere via him. I've I've had a giant Barbados fashion campaign. I've been I I don't I don't know what plays. You can limit me talk done warped tour for three years as a punk in the heat tour. I've also went bar to bar with partial matters. Like there, isn't any. Everybody's always giving you flack for your career, so odd it's like. How many times? Twenty million. Yes, I've had a number one pop song on radio. Yeah. These are real facts. When he did take the shot at you. Or on a kamikaze album was one of those things you you were ready for it. Because you you've been feeling like you've been banned for while you feel like the little shots been coming at you. So you will you prepared? I'll you anyone's prepare for that. I mean, you know, I'm always I'm always, I'm Jami. I'm not a sucker punk me. I mean, ultimately, that's the that's the ultimate thing. It was one of those things. WC executed video. It was there. It was like one of those Dan can't help that on that. I'm on point. I can't help that. I that it took this for you ought to see my talent, not y'all being you. But you know, I I can't help that. I thought was better than kill shot. I mean, I guess I guess I'm in the minority because people may give me a great lyricist. Anybody can deny that. I didn't say kill shot was better. I just say kill shot wasn't trash. That's what I said. Better six for me does view. Rabbit was alleged shot rap double we're talking about facts. You wanna talk about man buns? So the facts. I think people about a hairstyle I wore for a movie a blockbuster movie shout nerve. And it's in a in a ten episode Showtime series called roadies, I'm an actor, homey. How disconnected or you called me a mumble rapper? Can we just put them out for this old dumb ass? 'cause you can afford. Lie about those numbers. Right. Let's just take bad things. Just take batting right? Because because ultimately, I people just keep jumping back and forth with my whole. So, you know, take Wildwood till I die take our has.
