The Danish Baroque theologian and poet Thomas Kingo (1634-1703) created his groundbreaking hymnals ‘Aandelige Siunge-Koor’ to encourage the religious faith of his countrymen through domestic devotions in their native language.

Today, Kingo’s hymns, with their rich Baroque imagery, are still at the heart of Danish communal church singing. On this release, Phemius Consort presents a selection of the most beautiful Kingo hymns as they were originally intended: as songs with accompaniment, here supplemented by instrumental music by closely related European composers of the period.
