Gottfried August Homilius is considered the master of the motet in the second half of the 18th century. In his motets catchy melodies are combined with a primarily homophonic choral style, which thrives more on its sonority than on counterpoint. During his lifetime his works achieved a wide acceptance and popularity. In the vocal works of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, on the other hand, the lied plays a prominent role. His sacred Lieder were not particularly popular; they formed the basis for choruses and motets. Bach himself changed many of them into a choral form, as motets or cantatas or as oratorio choruses. Others were reworked for choir by his contemporaries, among them his brother, Johann Christoph Friedrich. This choral collection unites tonally beautiful choral works of both of these masters, each of whose 300th birthdays will be celebrated in 2014. These works can be performed in services as well as in concert.
