Schutz: Weihnachts-Historie / Concerto Vocale, René Jacobs

Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 19th December 2014
The performance is very strong. RenT Jacobs has an affinity with this music and he brings it to life with vigour and energy so that there is never any danger of its being dull. The overlapping of the vocal lines in the ensemble moments - you can't really call them choruses - is very convincing, and the solo singers are all very good, especially Martin Hummel's beautifully light-voiced Evangelist who holds the whole thing together convincingly.

René Jacobs invites you to rediscover the Christmas History, probably the most popular work of Heinrich Schütz. In his twilight years, the greatest 17th Century German composer brilliantly combined Lutheran fervor with Italianate recitative.
