The regions of Saxony and Thuringia contain some of the most important musical cities of the German Baroque, including the likes of Leipzig, Dresden, Halle and Mühlhausen. This programme of 17th-century sacred and secular works for voice and winds shows both the strong impact there of Italian music and the firm presence of the Lutheran church - influences that would later feed into the work of the regions' two greatest names, Bach and Handel.

 

'The splendid young sackbut and cornett ensemble QuintEssential ... purring like a Rolls-Royce engine no less.'

Funeral Sentences

Sensational winners of Gramophone's overall Recording of the Year award in 2012, Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis has quickly won a reputation for its deeply expressive and meticulously prepared performances. For us they perform funeral music of profound nobility and beauty by two of the greatest masters of the 17th century: Heinrich Schütz, the father of German Baroque music; and 'English Orpheus' Henry Purcell.

 

'Warm and resonant ... they sing this 300-year-old music with the freshness and ardour of true believers.'
The Independent
