Notes & Reviews:

This reconstructed Easter Mass consists exclusively of compositions by Praetorius following the Wolfenbüttel Church Constitution of 1569 - a document that enables us to experience an Easter Mass in the order and with the parts that it would have celebrated during Praetorius' term as chapel master. A finely elaborated concept! This CD inaugurates the first of 4 albums in a new CPO series entitled Renaissance in the North.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The Easter Mass of Michael Praetorius (1571- 1621) is essentially a series of baroque concertos, most movements calling for varied (and competing) forces of chorus, vocal and instrumental soloists, and orchestra. It is a brilliant performance, representing the best of German baroque performance practice. Weser-Renaissance Bremen also demonstrates the range of style a German audience might have encountered in the performance of an Easter Mass. It is enlightening to hear such variety, with a chanted 'Credo', a chordal setting of 'Christ ist Erstanden', together with polyphonic movements. Texts and notes are in English.
