Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Carwood and The Cardinall's Musick present a musical discovery. The music of Hieronymus Praetorius is much less well-known than his namesake (but not relation) Michael Praetorius. The composer's highly individual voice, direct and yearning yet with a madrigalian lightness, pervades throughout. The featured work is Praetorius' 'Magnificat quinti toni' to which are attached polyphonic arrangements of popular medieval holiday tunes "Joseph, lieber Joseph mein" and "In dulci iubilo."

'Hieronymus Praetorius gains his place in the sun with this outstanding release. The 16th-century organist and composer emerges as a master of vivid choral contrasts and effects' (Classic FM Magazine *****)

'This superb disc ... These are stunning performances, which is of course to be expected from this remarkable vocal ensemble ... all are bathed in a richly texutred and highly variegated choral sound ... Hieronymus Praetorius is considered by many to be one of the greatest North German composers of the first half of the seventeenth century. This release will surely go some way to convincing the rest of us of the truth of this assertion' (International Record Review)

'A superior festive selection box indeed' (Gramophone)

'The often highly expressive, sometimes quirky, and always well-crafted Magnificats and motets of Hieronymus Prateorius are a fine example of the strength-in-depth of German musical creativity. Andrew Carwood and The Cardinall's Musick ardently relish the interplay of voices in the eight-art scorings ... the overall impression is compelling, fresh and immediate' (Choir & Organ Magazine)

'Their beautiful singing of such fine music deserves wide circulation' (Early Music Review)
