Have you watched Grammys?

Last Sunday took place the Grammy award ceremony, this year at the always wonderful and astonishing place Madison Square Garden, New York City.

It happens that last year I discovered that choral singing has it’s own gramophone statue within this awards! ‘Best Choral performance’ and also some smal ensembles became nominated under the cathegory ‘ Best chamber music/Small Ensemble performance’.

Nominees this year were six great choirs and choir-orchestral collaborations:

Best Choral Performance:
Bryars: The Fifth Century  The Crossing and PRISM Quartet (winner)
Handel: Messiah -Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Toronto Mendelssohn Choir
Mansurian: Requiem -Münchener Kammerorchester and RIAS Kammerchor
Music Of the Spheres- Tenebrae Choir
Tyberg: Masses – South Dakota Chorale

Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance:
Divine Theatre – Sacred Motets By Giaches De Wert — Stile Antico


And, lastly, if you want to know more facts about the ‘Choral Grammy award’, have a look to this great article by NYGB (National Youth Choirs of Great Britain).



See you next time!
