Notes & Reviews:
After a long break, cpo continues its important, yeoman's Heinrich Schütz edition - repeatedly hailed as a benchmark series - with the Weser-Renaissance Bremen under Manfred Cordes. This latest release has the ensemble interpreting Schütz's Symphoniae Sacrae I, the oldest printed collection of his works. To capture the essence of these works involving obbligato early baroque instruments that also qualify very much as solo music, the technical bases must be fully and truly exhausted by the composer and the interpreters. "... Interpretive vibrancy, presence... and joy in sound... " (FonoForum)
Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
[Weser-Renaissance Bremen] are among the finest and most prolific exponents of Schütz on CD... [Cordes] has assembled a very fine cast of soloists who functions equally well as an ensemble [sic].
