They have received numerous awards for their recordings on the German harmonia mundi label, in 2016 they were named "Ensemble of the Year" with an Echo Klassik and in 2018 with an Opus Klassik. After the highly acclaimed albums on "Water", "Fire" and "Air", the ensemble concludes its recording cycle with music of the elements with the "Earth Music" album on the theme of "Earth". Under the subtitle "Tales of Silver, Gold and Other Subterranean Secrets", the ensemble, expanded by members of the RIAS Chamber Choir, spans a broad musical arc with exciting vocal and musical works that are seldom heard, the ensemble, with the addition of members of the RIAS Kammerchor, will perform a wide musical range of exciting, rarely heard vocal and instrumental works from the Renaissance and Baroque periods by composers such as Heinrich Schütz, Giovanni Gabrieli, Cristofano Malvezzi, Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi, Guillaume de Costeley, William Byrd, Francesco Cavalli, Anthony Holborne, Michael Praetorius and many others. The ensemble approaches the earth musically in six chapters: "Origin of the Earth: the Creation" (with "Jubilate Deo" by Gabrieli, "Lucis Creator Optime" by de Brito, and works by Malvezzi and Gastoldi"), "The Nourishing Earth" (with "O der großen Wundertaten" by Schütz and music by Gallus and Costeley), "In den Tiefen der Erde" (with Melchior Frank's "Das Bergwerk wolln wir preisen," music by Praetorius and Susato), "The Return to Earth" (et al. with a lullaby by Holborne and music by Cavalli), "Earth and Melancholy" (with music by Byrd, Desprez and Holborne) up to "The Earth and all its Fullness" (with a gagliarda by Posch and the spectacular psalm setting by Schütz - "Domini est terra et plenitudo ejus").
