Notes & Reviews:

Though little known today, Andreas Hammerschmidt was one of the most important masters of the early German Baroque and ranked among the greatest Protestant-Lutheran church music composers of his time. This CD with the stellar ensemble Gli Scarlattisti presents his vocal works for Passiontide and Easter as well as a "Dixit Dominus" by contemporary Johann Rosenmüller.

I think I was initially drawn to this music because of the particular, unique sound Hammerschmidt achieves scoring the instrumental parts. Among a few other instruments, two violins, organ, cello and lute are joined by three trombones, providing a rich and shaded, thickset timbre which contrasts the vocal lines beautifully; and it works especially well in the largely homophonic texture of the music... ... read more ...

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Here are nine of Hammerschmidt's sacred vocal works, beginning with one of his better known motets, 'Also Hat Gott die Welt Geliebet' (God so loved the world) in six parts with basso continuo. In the present performance, the voices are doubled by period cornets and trombones. There is no doubt that he was a consummate musical craftsman whose works are well worth hearing. The program is filled out with a setting of the Vesper psalm Dixit Dominus (Vulgate 109) by Hammerschmidt's contemporary, Johann Rosenmüller (1619-84). These performances by Arnold and the ensemble Gli Scarlattisti that he founded in 1995 are highly polished and above technical reproach. They are coherent, even elegant. The present recording is a sequel to a recent one by the same performers of other vocal works by Hammerschmidt and a Magnificat by Rosenmüller (Carus 83.375).
