Listing Detail Tabs

Though Schütz never composed a Vespers service, Peter Neumann and the
Kölner Kammerchor and the Collegium Cartusianum offer a hypothetical
“idealized” reconstruction drawn primarily from the
composer's Sym­phon­iae Sacrae and Psalmen Davids collections (also included
are selections from Schütz's Kleine Geistliche Konzerte 1636, Geistliche
Chormusik 1648, and Cantiones Sacrae 1625, along with his famous Magnificat).
While loosely modeled on Monteverdi's glo­ri­ous Marian Vespers (the psalms
are separated with concertos instead of antiphons),
Neumann's recon­str­uction lacks Monteverdi's bri­ll­iant underlying
structure so critical to the program's overall impact.
The performances here are generally fine, though given the competition
(especially in the Magnificat), they lack the sheer verve and depth of
expression offered by the better ones. In Anima mea liquefacta est, for example,
the brass are far outclassed by Les Saqueboutiers de Toulouse (Erato), who
perform with greater panache yet still remain in tune. Likewise in Freuet euch
des Herren, ihr Gerechten, Neumann's forces sound outright dispassionate
compared to Concerto Palatino on its superb complete recording of Symphoniae
Sacrae for Accent.
