5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Recording of Schütz's Christmas and Resurrection Stories Jan. 12 2010
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't ordinarily comment on the reviews of others in this forum. But it is clear to me that E. S. Wilks, whose review of this recording is laudatory, unwittingly made a mistake when he gave it only one star. Perhaps he momentarily thought one star was the highest rating. In any event, if you read his review you'll recognize that he meant to give it the highest rating. And I certainly intend to do that to. This is the best recording of the Weihnachtshistorie (Christmas Story) I've ever heard. The soloists, choir, and instrumental ensemble, all under the direction of that master musician, Paul Hillier, simply cannot be faulted. Adam Riis is particularly fine as the Evangelist in the Christmas Story as is Johann Linderoth in the Resurrection Story. The recorded sound is clear as a bell and lifelike. As for the music itself, if you're not familiar with it, it is a straightforward and entirely lovely musical presentation first of the Christmas story and then a moving retelling of Christ's Death and Resurrection.

Full texts are provide in German with a side-by-side English translation.

Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much to say beyond wonderful. March 31 2013

Simply a beautiful recording of these works. This entire series of the Schütz narrative works by Ars Nova Copenhagen and Paul Hillier have been nothing short of breathtaking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Schutz Weihnachtshistorie Auferstehungshistorie Nov. 26 2009
By E. S. Wilks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Heinrich Schutz (Schuetz) (1585 - 1672) was the most important seventeenth-century German composer who spanned the bridge between the Renaissance era (1440c - 1600c) and the Baroque era (1600c - 1750c). Not surprisingly, therefore, many of Schutz's choral passages sound (to my ear) like an extension of Gabrieli's majestic style, complete with splendid writing for brass, while his recitative passages, with their delicately accompanied narratives, point to the Baroque style refined by those who followed, especially Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750), who was born 100 years after Schutz.
With his blend of choral and recitative passages, Schutz essentially tells two biblical stories - Christ's birth and resurrection. This Dacapo CD of two of Schutz's most famous works is a welcome addition to the catalogs, because it combines on a single CD two of his most important compositions. Both works are available on other CDs, but (as far as I can ascertain) not together, as on this new CD. The choral passages are glorious, the soloists are excellent, and the accompaniments are beautifully performed. The recorded sound is crystal clear. Highly recommended!
