Two new cantatas
Newly released are the Bach cantatas Widerstehe doch der Sünde BWV 54 (Stand firm against the lure of sinning) and Gott soll allein mein Herze haben BWV 169 (My God alone this heart possesses). With the Bach vocal project we are publishing the complete edition of Bach's sacred vocal music in time for the Reformation anniversary in 2017.
EDITIONCHOR NOW AVAILABLE
English Choral Music
This volume ... should really be in every music library as a handbook of British choral music. All in all, we can only wish that this volume finds a wide circulation. It offers the best basis for experiencing British choral music and will hopefully encourage people to explore this repertoire further.
NEW: As well as the conductor's volume with CD, an cost-saving edition for choir (editionchor) is now available.
CD box set: The great Handel oratorios
Beginning in 2009, Carus launched a CD series of Handel's oratorios, plus selected vocal works, operas, and instrumental works. Handel fans can now look forward to a 13-CD box set with excellent performances!
>> About the CD box set
Handel's vocal works are an established feature of our publishing programme. Carus is constantly expanding the range of works in the Stuttgart Handel Edition Urtext. An edition of Handel's Alexander's Feast was the most recent publication.
Vespro della Beata Vergine: transposed versions
In many performances of Monteverdi's magnificent Vespers of the Blessed Virgin the Lauda Jerusalem and the Magnificat movements, which lie in a high tessitura, are transposed downwards. So that these can also be performed with the highly-acclaimed Carus edition, we offer both these movements individually a fourth lower. Complete performance material is available.

Three new works have just been released this month in carus music, the choir app:
the Missa brevis by Joseph Haydn, Charles Gounod's Messe brève no. 7 aux chapelles and Telemann's cantata Machet die Tore weit, which is sure to be performed frequently in the 2017 Telemann anniversary year.
Try out the choir app free of charge – with one choral movement for each work.
Gabriel Fauré: Cantique de Jean Racine op. 11
Since the World Youth Day in 2005 in Cologne Fauré's Cantique de Jean Racine op. 11 has been one of Paul Hogrebe's favorite pieces: The music almost floated through the still, cool cathedral: gentle, unassuming, heavenly, as if from another world – directly in contrast with the outside world.
