About

On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the death of Michael Praetorius, the Ensemble La Protezione della Musica has put together a selection of vocal and organ compositions that are quite representative for Praetoriusís work.

Under the main title ďA strong castle is our GodĒ, the ensemble presents works from Polyhymnia caduceatrix et panegyrica and Musae Sioniae. The recording was made in St Mary's Church in Lemgo in order to use the Scherer organ there from 1613 Ė in addition to corresponding instruments from that time, which enrich the vocal sounds of La Protezione della Musica.

The ensemble has its roots in Bremen and Leipzig (and there, of course, connections to the St Thomas Choir), and this is already the second CD by this young ensemble after Kielingís St Matthew Passion (ARC20020).
