Under the overall musical direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann realized the Dresden Chamber Choir in 2017 together with the Carus-Verlag Stuttgart, the first complete recording of Heinrich Schütz. The third part will now appear the "Musical funeral", the contactor 1635/36 composed on the death of his land Mr. Heinrich Posthumus of Reuss. Further, some solo dirges complement the CD, including some not previously rehearsed works. In addition to the Dresden Chamber Choir could be obtained for the complete recording including Dorothee Mields, Harry van der Kamp and Jan Kobow. The recording appears in excellent SACD recording technique. A coproduction with MDR Figaro.
Performance ***** Sonics ****½
"A fine continuation of an ongoing series that promises to set a very high bar."
"...Even though there are a number of superb recordings available, this one as a performance holds its own easily, with splendid reverberation and finely-placed choral sound that is clear and understandable. The instrumental forces are minimalist with only organ and single string as accompaniment, but it works very well in the textures that Schütz sets forth. Easily recommended!" ****

"...throughout the disc, the choir’s expertise with this style is self-evident and the Radeberg church acoustic serves the music like a tailor-made suit. It is expertly captured by the Carus engineers... very beautifully sung..."
