Geistliche Chormusik (Sacred Choral Music) 1648, op.11 SWV369-397


Knabenchor Hannover


Heinz Hennig


Seminal benchmark recording of Heinrich Schütz’s Geistliche Chormusik 1648, performed by the Knabenchor Hannover under its founding director Heinz Hennig, digitally remastered.

Over 30 years after its initial production, this legendary recording of Heinrich Schütz’s masterpiece is released in digitally remastered form on CD. In 1984, the disc constituted a pioneering effort in the field of historically informed performance practice and was awarded the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis; the complete recording of Schütz’s 29 motets has remained a benchmark recording ever since.

The recording is unique not just because of its high quality musicianship and the historically appropriate ensemble, which gives an impression of what this piece might (or even must?) once have sounded like, but also because of its bonus features: in addition to the 29 motets, the double disc offers a selection of these motets in ingenious and colourfully arranged alternative scorings.
