Album Summary

>Schütz, Heinrich : Cantiones Sacrae, motets (41) for 4 voices & continuo, SWV 53-93 (Op. 4)
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In the complete works of Heinrich Schütz, performed by the Dresdner Kammerchor under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann, the fifth installment presents the Cantiones Sacrae (SWV 53 - 93). In 1625 Schütz published this collection as his opus 4 using texts from the prayer book of Andreas Musculus, which is based in part on psalms and verses from the Song of Songs. "Historically informed - interpreted today," Rademann and the Dresdner Kammerchor present Schütz as an open invitation for new discovery.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2013
At their habitual best, these are very enjoyable performances, considered and light on their feet; but where quicksilver changes of expression or colour are required...the results are mixed.
