Description

As with much of the music that we have recorded, Ernst Wilhelm Wolf was a composer whom I had never heard of before. His work was introduced to me by Klaus Winkler to whom I am truly indebted, as he has provided me with a vast amount of heretofore unknown German sacred music which was written during the baroque and classical periods.

His Passion oratorio “Jesu deine Passion will ich jetzt bedenken” offers dramatic recitatives, rousing choruses and introspective arias in a personal style that encompasses the many facets of the Easter holiday.

I invite you to acquaint yourself with the splendours of this most unique passion setting!

    Mit der vorzüglichen Kölner Akademie, 1996 von Willens gegründet, und einem ausgesprochen gut aufeinander eingestimmten Solistenquartett nebst Chor gelingt eine ausgezeichnete Darstellung dieses Werk.

    All in all, this is a very interesting and musically compelling addition to the discography of 18th Century music for Passiontide.
