Melchior Franck (1580-1639): Gemmulae Evangeliorum Musicae / North German Chamber Choir

Notes & Reviews:

Magnificent rarities: Melchior Franck's gospel motets offer important testimony to Reformation religious liturgical practice at the beginning of the seventeenth century as well as compelling illustrations of biblical teaching texts. Franck translates the words of scripture into musical pictures promising to go straight to the listener's heart in this rendition by the Northern German Chamber Choir.

For each Sunday and feast day Melchior Franck wrote a motet, and Maria Jürgensen has selected a representative sampling from throughout the church year for her Northern German Chamber Choir.

The fine acoustics of the Bernitt village church lend these settings just the right musical color for full vocal radiance. The 3D recording in 2+2+2 sound completely transports the listener into this sacred space and does so with an opulence that makes one forget the technical side of the recording process.
