Psalms

Description

The Wiegenlieder-Projekt ("Lullaby Project") by Carus Verlag in 2009 succeeded in drawing broad public interest for singing together in the family and in rejuvenating many of the songs that have been handed down. This marked the start of the Liederprojekt, which was pursued successfully in the following years. A unique, high-quality archive of German-language songs was developed that has been expanded since then to include international repertoire. Following the various themes such as lullabies, children's songs, folk songs, Christmas songs and love songs, the Liederprojekt now devotes itself to some of the oldest song forms alive today: the psalms.

One composer, whose oeuvre finds an exceptional variety of equally impressive and moving psalm settings, is placed here front and center: Heinrich Schütz. The "father of German music" created a "psalms project" of a breadth and depth unlike any other composer through the musical arrangement of the Becker Psalter and of many other works. He is thus representative of all composers who have devoted themselves to the psaltery over the centuries, with the aim of continually reaching people - whether as singers or as silent listeners - through the settings of these oldest songs.

Reviews

Die musikalische Qualität des Ganzen steht außer Zweifel... Aufnahmetechnisch ist alles auf demselben hohen Niveau.
Hartmut Schütz, Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten, 10.08.2017

 

Wunderbare Wortdeutlichkeit und subtile Textausdeutung lassen jedes einzelne Stück zu einem akustischen Schatz werden!
Gustav Danzinger, CHOR aktuell, September 2017

 

Heinrich Schütz war einer der ganz Großen protestantischer Kirchenmusik. ... Werden sie [seine Psalmvertonungen] so beseelt gesungen wie hier, ist das auch nach 500 Jahren noch sprürbar.
Tagesspiegel, 25.06.2017

 

Ihre Interpretationen berühren, lassen die tiefe Frömmigkeit und zugleich die enorme rhetorisch-handwerkliche Geschicklichkeit erspüren, mit der Schütz den Text ausdeutet.
Anette Sidhu-Ingehoff, SWR Cluster, 19.06.2017

 

Der Dresdner Kammerchor singt einfühlsam und sehr textbezogen. Intonation und Phrasierung sind tadellos, was zu einer guten Verständlichkeit des gesungenen Worts führt.
Pizzicato, 18.06.2017

 

Der Dresdner Kammerchor unter der Leitung von Hans-Christoph Rademann erweckt diese geistlichen Musiken wirklich zum Leben - eine absolute Empfehlung.
Astrid Belschner, kulturradio, 07.06.2017
