J. M. Haydn: Missa Sancti Raphaelis
The Gloria and Credo of the Missa Sancti Raphaelis exist in two settings, a short version with polytextual passages and a longer version arranged by Haydn himself. The Carus edition, based on authentic performance material in St. Peter's Monastery in Salzburg, contains both versions, with the longer version published here for the first time.
The recorder parts of his vocal works
The edition contains all the recorder parts from Bach's vocal works in Urtext editions in a practical layout. The music text is always given in full, and includes indications of movements where the recorder is tacet. Cue-sized notes help orientation within the scoring. Where necessary additional transposed parts for instruments at different pitches are included, or alternative variants are suggested on ossia staves.
CONTEMPORARY CHORAL MUSIC
Mocnik: Missa Sancti Jacobi
Damijan Mocnik is one of the most frequently-performed Slovenian composers. The Missa Sancti Jacobi for two four-part choirs, drum and triangle contains the usual five movements (Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus/Benedictus, and Agnus Dei), and was recorded for the sacred album ... et LUX perpetua in 2017.
Also new is John Høybye's setting of Psalm 151, in which the Danish composer creates a theater-like piece to lyrics by Edward Broadbridge, assigning clear roles to the choir and solo violin.
Osterdialog. Concluding chorus
Separate edition from Vol. 19 of the Stuttgart Schütz Edition
Heinrich Schütz's Osterdialog (Dialogo per la Pascua) SWV 443 for four voices and basso continuo is based on an episode from the Gospel of St John, in which the risen Jesus appears before Mary Magdalene in front of the empty grave. This separate edition contains a reconstruction of the extensive final chorus of the work - of which an autograph manuscript is
missing except for the basso continuo part - by Helmut Lauterwasser.
Buxtehude: Nun lasst uns Gott, den Herren
The cantata Nun lasst uns Gott, den Herren (BuxWV 81) is based on a chorale text by Ludwig Helmbold of 1575. Buxtehude set the eight verses of the chorale, which Helmbold conceived as a song of thanks after a meal, in the form of a strophic hymn with instrumental interludes.
Mendelssohn: Lauda Sion
The complete sacred choral works of Mendelssohn are available from Carus-Verlag in critical new editions and in recordings with Frieder Bernius.
Mendelssohn is now represented by ten works in carus music, the choir app. New in march is the liturgical sequence Lauda Sion.

The numerous motets from Scheidt's collection Cantiones Sacrae - many of which are here recorded for the first time on CD with the Athesinus Consort Berlin directed by Klaus-Martin Bresgott - are complemented by the contemporary composition Die Stimme meines Freundes [The voice of my friend], a motet on texts from the Song of Songs and the Proverbs of Solomon by Frank Schwemmer (*1961). > See CD
Congratulations to Frieder Bernius and the Chamber Choir Stuttgart - the recent Ligeti-CD has convinced the jury of The German Record Critics' Award! The underlying composition of the CD is a recording of the Requiem with the Kammerchor Stuttgart, recorded in early 2006, which Ligeti himself praised as being "an outstanding interpretation."

Makh tsu di Eygelekh. Yiddish songs
The mezzo-soprano Helene Schneiderman has been a member of the ensemble at the Stuttgart Staatsoper for many years. Ulla Sachse loves her and her voice. So when the CD with her singing Yiddish songs, sensitively accompanied by Götz Payer at the piano, was released in 2013 by us at Carus-Verlag, Ulla Sachse bought herself a copy straight away. Only at second glance did she come to realize what a moving story les behind these recordings...
