About

"Vom Himmel hoch" is one of the most famous songs by Martin Luther which is still sung today at Christmas. The ensemble Hamburger Ratsmusik under Simone Eckert has recorded this and four other Luther songs for Advent and Christmas in arrangements by composers from the Reformation era. The arrangements from Heinrich Finck and Lucas Osiander to Praetorius captivate through their diversity in different instrumental and vocal combinations. The ensemble is supported by the two sopranos Veronika Winter and Ina Siedlaczek and the tenor Jan Kobow.

"... it is an outstanding survey disc that features a number of quite obscure names that any fancier of Renaissance-era music will wish to add to his or her library." - James A. Altena, Fanfare, February 2017

"This is a beautiful collection of Lutherí's music, presented through the arrangements of six generations of composers." - Ralph Graves, WTJU, December 2016

"Playing and singing are first-class and the performers have found the right approach to this repertoire."
- Johan van Veen, musica Dei donum, December 2016
