Dresden Kreuzchor, Rudolf Mauersberger“Seculi sui Musicus excellentissimus” was the epitaph inscribed on his tombstone in the old Frauenkirche of Dresden – to his contemporaries, the Saxon-born Heinrich Schütz was one of the most outstanding composers of the century, and even writers of music history today refer to him as ‘Musicus poeticus ecclesiasticus’, whose works were and are still the epitome of Protestant church music.

The richness of colour and musical splendour of the Psalmen Davids, scored for several choruses and first to feature on the release, reflects the arts-minded Saxon court for which they were composed; next comes a collection of motets, which similarly follow in the footsteps of Venetian composition through ‘painting in sound,’ the content of the text and dividing the choir into two or more tonal groups. Rounding off the compilation is the composer’s Schwanengesang,

The renowned Dresden Kreuzchor became closely associated with the works of Schütz under the directorship of Rudolf Mauersberger, who made the choir an instrument of singular appeal. Here they feature alongside a number of other distinguished German choral groups and ensembles, including the Berliner Solisten, to perform the works of a composer who represented an important transitional phase in sacred music.
