Description
Following its first performance in 1843, Mendelssohn’s impressive setting of the chorale Herr Gott, dich loben wir disappeared in the archives for more than 150 years and was only rediscovered in the mid-1990s. Through antiphonal writing and modal harmony Mendelssohn created an unusual, archaic atmosphere. His mastery in the art of underscoring the meaning of the text is also displayed in his settings of Psalms 95 and 98 for soli, choir and orchestra, as well as in Hymne op. 96. In addition, this CD also contains several smaller a cappella works. The interpretation of these works by the award-winning Kammerchor Stuttgart, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and renowned soloistsunder the direction of Frieder Bernius brings the works to life with a most refined and brilliant sound.
