Carus presents three fascinating works for the Passiontide on Volume 6 of the Complete Recording of Heinrich Schütz.
Heinrich Schütz expressed musically the central message of the Christian thinking in the work The Seven Words of Jesus on the cross SWV 178, so this mostly enigmatic work is similarly in a theological and musical way fascinating.
The mostly unknown sacred concert for four violins and voice, Have mercy upon me, O God SWV 447 is a world premiere recording for the Good Friday service and represents a delightful addition to The Seven Words of Jesus.
The St Lukas Passion SWV 480 unfolds a kind of panorama which invites the listener to an intensive and quiet viewing of the passion.
Performed by the talented collaboration of the Dresden Chamber Choir under the direction of Rademann, Hans Christoph, we can enjoy the music in its most sublime form.
