Ein Deutsches Barockrequiem – 2023

Johannes Brahms drew texts from various Biblical sources for hisDeutsches Requiem. As we hear in his choral music, he had a passion for polyphony and was inspired by models from the great Lutheran tradition of the late Renaissance and the Baroque. Ricercar and Vox Luminis have explored this early repertoire with the same passion for many years now, although with no less admiration for Brahms’s masterpiece. It is no surprise that some of the texts that Brahms chose had already been set by his illustrious predecessors; it simply remained for us to trace a path through these earlier scores, so many meditations on death, and to assemble a very different Deutsches Requiem: one animated by the emotions of the Lutheran Baroque. Our new recording thus brings together motets the likes of Christian Geist, Johann Philipp Förtsch, Andreas Hammerschmidt and Johann Hermann Schein.

Vox Luminis en estado puro, pura orfebrería vocal, no se puede pedir más.




“…comme d’ha­bitude avec Vox Luminis, le son est in­séparable du sens, et le dialogue des chanteurs, escortés par un petit en­semble de cordes et le bel orgue de Bart Jacobs, est confondant de ferveur et de clarté.”
