The Calmus Ensemble and the Lautten Compagney embark on a musical journey into the 16th century: using Martin Lutherís paean Mitten wir im Leben sind as its starting point, the musicians paint a lively picture of life during the Reformation era. In both the sacred and secular works we encounter joyful delight and high-spirited merriment just as much as never-ending distress and grievous misery. The apparent parallels with the present time cause us to smile quietly, while statements to themes such as nature and home cause us to be pensive. In addition to the many original compositions, a whole series of new arrangements Ė which make the 16th-century songs swing Ė have come into being through the collaboration of the two ensembles.
