Gottfried August Homilius left behind an extensive oeuvre. It contains among others numerous motets, cantatas and oratorios. The compositions of Homilius were widespread and extremely popular in their time. To celebrate its 300th Birthday appear at Carus several albums with works of this "best [n] church composer [s]" (JF Reichardt) of his time.
Critics’ Choice 2014
"...I recommend this selection of motets by Gottfied August Homilius, a pupil of JS Bach whose music seems to span periods outside its own and stands comparison with that of Bach’s sons. Sirventes Berlin’s subtle and dedicated performances make this disc well worth exploring."
