Historical events play an overriding role in our thematically oriented concerts. Many of our concert programs are based on religious festivals, connections between musical personalities or historical circumstances such as the 30-year war (1618-1648). Our standard repertoire includes the most important church music compositions of the late Renaissance and early Baroque era, such as:
Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672):
- Auferstehungshistorie, SWV 50
- Weihnachtshistorie, SWV 435
- Die 7 Worte Jesu am Kreuz, SWV 478
- Psalmen Davids, SWV 22-47
- Symphoniae Sacrae, 257-276
- Kleine geistliche Konzerte, SWV 282-337
Michael Prætorius (1571-1621):
- »Polyhymnia Exercitatrix«
- »Polyhymnia Caduceatrix et Panegyrica«
- »Musae Sioniae«
Johann Cyriacus Kieling (1670-1727):
- »Passio Salvatoris nostri Jesu Christi secundum Evangelistam Matthaeum«
In addition, we are also familiar with sacred concerts, madrigals and motets, arias as well as songs, instrumental suites and high baroque cantatas by Thomas Selle, Wolfgang Carl Briegel, Andreas Hammerschmidt, Constantin Christian Dedekind, Werner Fabricius, Johann Christoph Schmidt, Georg Philipp Telemann, Christoph Graupner Johann Sebastian Bach and their numerous contemporaries.
On request, we will be pleased to put together an individual concert program just for you. Therefor, we are also ready to work together with choirs of churches and concert halls!
