Machet Die Tore Weit - Christmas Choral Music
Format: SACD HYBRID
Kay Johannsen (organ) Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben, Rainer Johannes Homburg
Christmas with the Stuttgart Hymnus Choirboys, a choir looking back on 111 years of tradition. The spectrum of their new release on this freshly recorded Super Audio CD ranges over the centuries, from Eccard and Schütz by way of Bach and Brahms through to Reda and Willcocks. Fully dimensioned motets, intimate choral pieces, and festive polychoral compositions resonating throughout the sacred space of the church interior are represented on this release. The choir director Rainer Johannes Homburg can draw on substantial instrumental resources: the organ, cello, and violone form the basso continuo are joined by three percussionists!
