Notes & Reviews:

The Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) was the stage for bloody clashes, resulting not only in destruction but also a deep demoralization. This recording presents some of the most moving 17th century settings of Penitential Psalms and biblical texts. One is struck, listening to this music, by the depth of feeling on the one hand - a blend of humility, pain, and anguish - and by the power of the musical composition itself on the other. Seventeenth-century sacred music was not intended as an end in itself, but as a means to move the spirit of the faithful and render them open to the word of God and the message of Jesus Christ.
