German Baroque Sacred Music: Passion-Resurrection / Les Pleiades [7 CDs]


Notes & Reviews:

LES PLEIADES: new themed boxed sets of RICERCAR's greatest recordings for more than thirty years, RICERCAR has explored all the early music repertoires. A good number of these recordings being currently out of stock, this very vast heritage is being re-released in the form of economically priced sets. Each one will bring together coherent program, bringing together excerpts from various recordings that will represent thinking about a particular subject. Like the constellation of the Seven Sisters (Pleiades), these seven-CD sets will shine with the stars of the RICERCAR catalogue. With this set, RICERCAR is beginning the rerelease of one of the jewels in its catalogue: the large collection devoted to sacred music of the German Baroque. Each set will group pieces by theme, the first being devoted to music for Passiontide, Easter and funeral cantatas. This long page in the history of music stretches from Schütz to Bach with the first release of a highly moving live recording of Bach's Johannes Passion by Les Agrémens and the Chamber Chorus of Namur conducted by Guy van Waas.
