Notes & Reviews:

This recording of choral works for Passiontide and Easter continues to follow the Dresden Kreuzchor through the Church year. The CD series presents works that have long featured in the Kreuzkirche’s liturgical celebration of these festivals—the choir’s “domestic repertoire,” so to speak. Thousands flock to these evening services every fortnight, to enjoy the centuries-old tradition in which boys’ voices blend anew into the unique and homogeneous sound of choral singing. Passion and Easter represent the strongest possible contrast between crucifixion and resurrection, offering the listener an impressive sweep of inseparably linked musical and spiritual content. As the repertoire ranges from the Middle Ages to modern times, all the choir’s tonal potential is exploited to its utmost.
