Jin Antonin Benda, Antonin Rejcha, Bohuslav Matej Cernohorsky, Jan Krtitel Vanhal, Jan Jakub Ryba, FrantiSek Adam Mica — are 17th and 18th century Czech composers of the Baroque and early Classicism periods. Their works are a gem of Czech musical art. For their first LP album the Linha Singers chose from these works.
In listening to this record one might gain the impression that the Linha group is walking in the footsteps of the French Swingle Singers. Although a certain analogy exists it is improper to label the Linha group as a mere copy. Says Jifi Lin ha: "The Swingle Singers go in for the rhythmic and brilliant compositions with a multitude of arpeggios and scales for which they make use of their excellent technique. I, on the other hand, am interested in the beauty and individuality of the musical notion. There is not much point in re-arranging Bach or Mozart, for the French recording.» are peerless. This brought me onto the idea of singing compositions by the old Czech masters who had been unjustly forgotten and to adapt our expressive possibilities to this music".
Most of the works that Jin Linha has selected for this record are by composers who, for the most diverse reasons lived and created mostly beyond the borders of the Czech lands. The entire Benda family, for instance, lived in Berlin. The most significant member of this family was Jiri Antonin Benda (1722—1795), a remarkable personality of early European Classicism. He came from one branch of a musical family in northern Bohemia and with his father's family moved to Berlin, where he played the violin in the Court orchestra. Antonin Rejcha lived in France (1770—1836) and thoroughly assimilated with the musical life of Paris. He was most successful as a composer of chamber music, his specialty being wind quintets. In style he belongs to the transitional period between Classicism and Romanticism. Rejcha was also an excellent pedagogue whose pupils included Berlioz, Gounod, Franck and Liszt.
The monk Matej Cernohorsky (1684—1742) was a choirmaster at St. Jacob's Church in Prague, but he spent much of his time in Italy and was even considered as Bach's rival. The complex polyphonic compositions of this mature Baroque counterpoint composer contained melodic novelty and harmonic clarity.
Jan Krtitel Vanhal (1739—1813) attained fame as a symphony composer as well as a piano teacher. He worked in Vienna and among his best known works are the concertos for flute, for organ and for viola with orchestra. Frantisek Adam Mica (1746—1811) composed in the playful style with Beethoven-like features. He had studied law in Vienna and composed only as an amateur. Mozart, whom he knew personally, greatly respected his works.
Of the composers who created at home in Bohemia, this album contains recordings from works of the fruitful composer of church music Jakub Jan Ryba (1765—1815). He passed through various trends— from early Classicism to the mature Mozartian style, in which he made ample use of the pastorella element. His most well known work is the Czech Christmas Mass.
Jiri Linha has a very personal approach in interpreting the works of these masters and their contemporaries i Frantisek Xaver Richter, for example, or Jan Ladislav Dusik and others). In arranging the old compositions he does not adhere religiously to the original lead voices. He adapts the instrumental character of the music to the potentiality of the singers whose range is limited and who, naturally, are unable to use all the interval jumps. Only rarely do the number of voices correspond to the original number of instruments: at times the part of one instrument is given to two singers and elsewhere it is possible to blend several instrumental parts into one voice. Naturally, in each case, the basic framing of the compositions remains in the original and only occasionally is the work slightly abbreviated to contribute to the final sound and to fulfil the requirements of the genre.
In this album the Jiri Linha Singers do only the vocals and by articulation try to approach the phrasing of the musical instruments. The number of singers for the individual arrangements varies from four to seven voices, depending on the character of the composition. The most commonly used form is the quintet. And since the required number of compositions for this LP album were, in view of technical difficulties, long in the recording process, some of the group's members alternate.

Two or three musicians from the Karel Velebny Jazz Group usually provided the accompaniment on the bass and various drums. They are Jiri Mraz, Vincenc Kummer, Karel Vejvoda (bass) and Karel Velebny, Karel Turnovsky, Milan Mader, Pavel Burda (drums).
The mainstay and spirit of this miniature vocal group is Jiri Linha a talented musician who is equally as good at singing as at music theory. From the age of seven he sang in a children's choir, then was a member of the Czech Philharmonic Choir and also played the violin and the piano. As Linha had longed to devote himself thoroughly to music, he studied at Charles University to be a music teacher but soon abandoned the profession to become an active musician. He was choirmaster and conductor of the State Folk Song and Dance Ensemble. In 1963 he set up his vocal group with which he has been, with small alternations, to day.
If we compare the original form of the compositions included in this LP album with those in the repertoire of the Swingle Singers we will find another marked difference between the two. While the French group interprets mostly their own arrangements of piano compositions, Linha specializes in works written for ensembles — therefore in addition to the piano compositions (Dusik: Sonatina For Piano and others), we also find arrangements of string quartets (Frantisek Adam Mica, Fr. Xaver Richter), one movement of a wind quintet and one entire symphonic movement (Fr. X. Richter: Sinfonia). A curiosity is the Gloria by Koutnik, for whose arrangement Linha took into account the qualities of the orchestral and human voices.
The Linha Singers interpretation of the Old Czech Masters received significant recognition long before this record was completed. The first two compositions — Mica's Rondo and the movement from the Piano Sonata in A Major by Jan Krtitel Vanhal— were evaluated very positively by foreign critics who attended the International Jazz Festival Praha 66. We hope that you too will enjoy this recording.
