Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though perhaps not best known for composing hymns, Telemann collected the most popular chorales of his time in what became known as the Telemannisches Gesangbuch. Published in 1730, many of these 2,000 hymns are still sung today in worship. This release gathers 30 of the best-loved chorales together for a spiritual experience grounded in history.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The first disc offers 30 selections from a little- noticed Telemann publication of 1730. Its title is Fast Allgemeines Evangelisch-Musicalisches Lieder-Buch, which might be translated literally as "Nearly Universal Song-Book of Evangelical Music" (the album notes suggest a freer English equivalent of "Integrative Lutheran Hymnal"). Telemann diligently tried to collect all he could find of standard and traditional sacred songs (chorales in the German tradition) for broad application. The title page further identifies the contents as "the very oldest Chorales following their original melodies", with guidance supplied for four-part harmonization, and general-bass support. Lovers of German Baroque music will find a lot of old friends here. The hymns are presented only in the melody with continuo, and with several stanzas each. Mertens sings almost all of them, sometimes sharing a few with a boy soprano (in alternation or dialog, even in unison). Mertens is a singer I greatly admire, with a warm, humane vocal style: I would follow him even if he sang the proverbial laundry list, and he sustains interest in this material for almost an hour and 20 minutes. If you are interested in the history of hymnography you will find it rewarding. Notes are good.
