Notes & Reviews:

Johann Adam Hiller’s six collections of four-part motets and arias, published 1776-91, offer a rich selection of works mostly from the second half of the 18th c. and give insight into a new blossoming of the motet, which it then experienced after having led a shadowy existence for more than a century. Here the Saxon Vocal Ensemble under founder Matthias Jung presents a selection of the most beautiful pieces from these collections. The SVW (Ger.) often features seldom-heard works by 18th c. Saxon composers. Varying between 18 and 28 singers depending on need, the ensemble performs contemporary music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Most of the vocal works emphasize pure chordal homophonic textures - simple melodies with rich triadic harmonies. Most exhibit a fairly unified affect. The performance is very fine - beautifully balanced and in tune. Texts and notes are in English.
