Together with Carus-Verlag Stuttgart, under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann, the Dresdner Kammerchor will realize the first complete recording of the works of Heinrich Schuetz by 2017. Part 4 of the project, the "12 geistliche Gesaenge" will now be released. These twelve works were published in 1657 for practical use in churches, schools and at home. While some of the pieces, such as the well known "Benedicite vor dem Essen" (All our eyes do wait, O Lord, upon thee) are still sung for practical use by many choirs, other pieces of the cycle are completely unknown. At present, this recording is the only one which presents the "12 geistliche Gesaenge" in a complete recording-the Dresdner Kammerchor and Hans-Christoph Rademann have focused attention on previously hidden aspects of Schuetz's works, and in doing so have revealed valuable treasures. These motets are truly worth discovering and have earned a well deserved place in the concert halls, homes, and churches of today. A coproduction with MDR Figaro.
