Description du produit
'Ecce Cor Meum' signifie 'Voici mon Coeur', et c'est après 8 ans de gestation que Paul McCartney a réalisé sa 4ème oeuvre classique, depuis son Liverpool oratorio en 1991. C'est à la demande du président du célèbre collège anglais d'Oxford que l'artiste s'est attelé à la réalisation de cet oratorio en 4 mouvements pour choeur, soprano et orchestre, qui combine des textes en latin et en anglais. 'Ecce cor Meum' est une confession spirituelle de Paul Mc Cartney. Disponible en édition limitée digipack.

The vocals are lovely, with the harmonies rising and falling, bringing you to various places in the somewhat "spiritual" journey of this work.
This music, in my opinion, needs to be felt. The lyrics are fairly simple, though full of imagery. What gives them the strength they have is the power behind them. This music lives and breathes. Not just notes on a page, it gets into your very core.
I urge anyone to listen to this CD. Not only Paul fans. I think many will find it inspirational, beautiful, and enjoyable to listen to.
In the case of "serious" music, though, it is like any work of art. It is done by understanding the medium and understanding the progress of the art itself.
McCartney's attempt at a serious work falls short in most every respect. It is dull and colorless with occasional tender moments. An extended passage involving the oboe was particularly poignant. Otherwise the repetitiveness of the work makes for rather difficult sustained listening.
In his program notes, the composer seemed to think that lack of formal training in music, even with notation, was an asset rather than a liability. We beg to differ. The understanding of the dynamics of harmony, rhythm and melody in the course of a large work is as important to the composer as color and its use is to a painter.
Having to write 40-45 minutes of orchestral and choral music is a whole lot different than 32 bars of, say, "Michelle" or "Will You Still Love Me When I'm 64?" (Which of course we always will, Paul!)
Even a master composer like George Gershwin was limited, albeit much more successful, in his attempts at larger works. That said, there is hope of McCartney. I'd like to see more from his pen.
McCartney's is a pastoral England when it comes to the Classics. This choral work would stand well along side the works of William Walton, Arnold Bax, Ralph Vaughn Williams, and that's something to be especially proud of. McCartney has said of his famous pop career that what he was proudest of was that the works of The Beatles were always about Love, Peace, Understanding. That remians the core theme of this work. The lyrics are what you would expect from Paul: direct entreaties to the heart filled with compassion and a sentimentality that seems to have left the cynical world of soundbites and political liars. Like the Dalai Lhama or Tich Nhat Hanh, whse encomiums seem too simplistic to answer the world's pains, Mc Cartney directs his thoughts and prayers to what is essentailly human about us all, and he refuses to give up hope and faith.
There's something to be said for that. It's not a silly love song. This is the heart that he and in his view all of us would want each other to behold. He gets that across more convincingly than anyone this side of Arvo Part.
The choir and the orchestration are perfect through out. McCartney, a choirboy reject, seems to want to still prove to whomever canned him that he could do it. And does he ever! You'll find this a disc you will return to often, especially when your mind needs a rest. I'd like to hope that McCartney will now aim for more adventurous efforts, using perhaps either Taverner or Maxwell Davies as iconic beams. We shall see. In any case, be it in his rock mode or classical efforts, Paul McCartney is in the midst of a terrific golden age. His writing, performing and his vision have never been better, more to the point of what our souls need. Well done.
