Description
The rebuilding of the Dresden Frauenkirche has gained widespread public attention throughout Europe and in the USA. Recently the bells were dedicated in a formal ceremony and the church was crowned with its ornamental tower. The present CD is dedicated to discovering the “traces of sound” through the music which was composed for this church. When the Kreuzkirche, the main church of the city, was destroyed in July 1760, the Frauenkirche moved into the forefront as the first parish church in the old town of Dresden. Gottfried August Homilius is considered the most significant and compositionally productive Kreuzkantor. His work also found a widespread acceptance outside thecapital of Saxony. Although he was music director of the Kreuzkirche, due to its destruction he spent three quarters of his tenure working in the Frauenkirche, where previously he had been the organist for 13 years. Most of his works were written directly for this church. The present CD features four festive cantatas for the feast of Whitsun in interpretations by the internationally renowned Dresdner Kreuzchor under their conductor, Roderich Kreile. The Kreuzchor is accompanied by the Dresdner Barockorchester.
