About

This CD features the recording premieres of the St Matthew Passion by Johannes Heroldt and the St John Passion by Teodoro Clinio. Both works were composed at virtually the same time (1594-95) and emerged from the rivalry prevailing in Christian Europe. Johannes Heroldt, a Protestant from Jena, composed his German-language St Matthew Passion, while the Catholic Clinio, who was active in Italy’s Veneto region, penned his St John Passion in Latin. Both Passions are purely vocal works for six voices, and various vocal combinations characterize the individual participants in the Passion narrative.
