Like a modern stained glass window in a gothic church, Rihm’s Sieben Passionstexte (“Seven Passion Texts”) – rarities of the a cappella repertoire – skillfully span a musical bridge from the present day to classical vocal polyphony. In contrast, Łukaszewski embraces Holy Week in his expansive Responsoria Tenebrae through select biblical quotations. And in Brandmüller’s Le Paradis, the listener is able to appreciate how the Kammerchor Saarbrücken masters the demands of an extremely complex and demanding work. Completed by the choir’s director Georg Grün, this opus ultimum concludes the recording with the conciliatory encounter with death, so to speak, in “heavenly beautiful tones”.
