Notes & Reviews:

To his contemporaries, the death of Matthias Weckmann in 1674 seemed to herald the end of a glorious period. In his post as organist of the Jacobikirche since 1655, the composer had breathed new life into the city's musical scene. Among his finest sacred works is Wie liegt die Stadt so wusste (How doth the city sit solitary) - a setting of book one of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, which speaks of the isolation of the city of Jerusalem. This haunting work is both pristinely evocative and immaculately structured, a credit to Weckmann's teacher, Heinrich Schutz, and the German musical tradition preceding JS Bach. Konrad Junghanel leads Cantus Colln in a moving performance of this rarely heard masterwork, coupled here with other sacred motets.

Gramophone Magazine
This is the ensemble's most outstanding legacy in this repertoire...Cantus Cölln bring customary warmth, blend and refinement to this magnificent work and an instinct for pacing, hard-won through their immersion over years of discovery in this kaleidoscopic repertoire.

The Independent on Sunday
As ever with Cantus Cölln, the singing is tonally idiosyncratic but fervent, the playing is beyond reproach. Beautiful and terribly, terribly sad.
