Eight tal­ent­ed young musi­cians from the renowned Juilliard School in New York are intro­duced to the incred­i­bly rich and fer­tile musi­cal past of 17th cen­tu­ry North Germany. Under the direc­tion of singer and con­duc­tor Stephan MacLeod, they explore the reper­toire of Schütz, Wechmann, J. C. Bach and Erlebach, among oth­ers. The music of each one of these com­posers sought to rein­force the under­ly­ing text. This, in com­bi­na­tion with the for­mal free­dom enjoyed by com­posers in that peri­od, allows for an extra­or­di­nary rich­ness and vari­ety of colours.

Music by o. a. Heinrich Schütz (15851672), Matthias Weckmann (16161674), Johann Christoph Bach (17351782), Nicolaus Bruhns (16651697) and Johann Rosenmüller (16191684)
