Notes & Reviews:

Prince Heinrich von Reuss organized all the details of his funeral in advance, from the music - to be composed and performed by Heinrich Schütz - to the coffin. The program here includes not only the renowned Musicalische Exequien, but also other funeral motets by Schütz, one of which was composed on the death of his friend Johann Hermann Schein. After the success of their CD of works by Samuel Scheidt, Vox Luminis now takes up the challenge of one of Schütz's greatest sacred works. The CD cover art is a photograph of the coffin that Reuss himself ordered; Prince Heinrich XIII has generously allowed its use for this recording.
