Homilius was organist of the Dresden Frauenkirche and composing chorale preludes was one of his main activities. This CD has been expanded to include two cantatas, as well as the only known chamber music by Homilius. The recording is under the direction of the internationally-renowned trumpeter and conductor Ludwig Güttler, who conducts and performs here.
Steude, Barbara Christina...is bright of voice and clear of diction throughout, while Lorenz's phrasing and ornamentation are a delight...Sympathetically recorded and with extensive notes and performer biographies, this is a welcome release.” INT. RECORD REVIEW
