Schieferdecker was a successor of Buxtehude in the Church of St. Mary in Lübeck.
He continued the vision of “Opera in the Church” but many of his works were lost.
The cantatas featured here show how impressively he developed Buxtehude’s ideas.
“The cantatas are sung by Mertens, Klaus, a notable Bachian, and tenor Jan Kobow, with a welcome lack of histrionic intervention and fine tone. Simone Eckert, the viola da gamba player, directs the Hamburger Ratsmusik with incision and a sure feeling for the music`s line” MUSIC WEB
