Notes & Reviews:

This box set presents the complete narrative works of Heinrich Schütz in the acclaimed new recordings by Ars Nova Copenhagen conducted by Paul Hillier. The engaging account of the six stories of Christmas, Passion and Resurrection in Schütz' sublime Baroque settings are presented along with authoritative notes and the conductor's own commentary on the works, which rank among the finest pieces of the 17th Century. "Ars Nova Copenhagen reaffirms its status as an outstanding vocal ensemble with luminous and pure choral singing ... This is not to be missed." (GRAMOPHONE AWARD NOMINEE 2010 - 8.226058)

American Record Guide
This is quite an astounding cycle of works, and brilliantly performed. The drama is exhilarating, and the singing is precise and gently nuanced. If you have not purchased the individual recordings, the box set offers the perfect opportunity to own them all.

Fanfare
This set is an essential acquisition for anyone interested in sacred music and the early Baroque; urgently recommended.
