Schutz: Sacred Music
Label: BRILLIANT CLASSICS
DRESDNER KREUZCHOR; RUDOLF MAUERSBERGER
This new set presents some of Schütz’s grandest works—the splendid Psalms of David, Polychoral Concertos and Motets and his moving Schwanengesang, music both magnificent and intimate. The renowned Dresden Kreuzchor became closely associated with the works of Schütz under the directorship of Rudolf Mauersberger, who made the choir an instrument of singular appeal. Here they feature alongside a number of other distinguished German choral groups and ensembles, including the Berliner Solisten.
