Notes & Reviews:

In the 60th year of diplomatic relations between Germany and the State of Israel, the Deutscher Kammerchor (German Chamber Choir) presents psalm settings of the 19th-20th c. from Christian and Jewish traditions and the area of tension between them. Psalms by Josef Rheinberger from Catholic Munich contrast with Hebrew and German settings by Louis Lewandowski and Alfred Rose. Between them stands Felix Mendelssohn, who originally hailed from a Jewish family but was baptized into the Protestant faith, and the Catholic Franz Schubert, who set a psalm in the Hebrew language for the Jewish synagogue in Vienna. Arnold Schönberg's late confrontation with his Jewish faith and the founding of the State of Israel led to his setting of the 130th Psalm. Extremely fascinating, too, is the "Water Psalm" by Gilead Mishory, a Jewish composer living in Germany, composed in response to a commission from the German Chamber Choir. The works on this CD were not composed out of the situation of Christians and Jews merely existing side by side, but reveal strong mutual cultural influences. With the recording also meeting the highest musical standards, this CD is a wonderful ambassador of Christian-Jewish cultural encounters.
