Schütz: St Luke Passion, SWV 480

Johan Linderoth

Jakob Bloch Jespersen & Ars Nova Copenhagen, Paul Hillier



(also available to download from $10.00)

Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days. (Available now to download.)

Ars Nova Copenhagen and Paul Hillier here present the first recording in a series devoted to the narrative works (Historia) of Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672).

The Danish vocal ensemble thus celebrates Denmark’s proud connection with this German master who was appointed Kapellmeister to King Christian IV and worked at the Danish court for two periods over the course of eleven years.

The cover illustrations show reliefs in beaten metal by Karl Schmidt-Rottluff (1884-1976), a member of the Die Brücke group founded in 1905 in Dresden – a city with which Schütz himself was closely associated.

ARS NOVA COPENHAGEN is widely recognized as one of the finest vocal ensembles in Europe. At the heart of Ars Nova Copenhagen’s work is its equal dedication to early music and new music. Lead by chief conductor since 2003, PAUL HILLIER, the ensemble has gained critical acclaim for numerous recordings.

Heinrich Schutz: Lukas-Passion, SWV 480

Das Leiden unsers Herren Jesu Christi (Chorus)

Es war aber nahe das Fest der sussen Brot (Evangelist, The Disciples, Jesus, Peter)

Und er ging hinaus nach seiner Gewohnheit (Evangelist, Jesus, The Disciples, The Maid, Peter, A Boy, Another Boy)

Die Manner aber, die da Jesum hielten (Evangelist, Jews, High Priests, Jesus)

Und der ganze Haufe stund auf (Evangelist, High Priests, Pilate, Jesus, Crowd)

Aber sie lagen ihm an mit grossen Geschrei (Evangelist, Jesus, Rulers, Soldiers, Malefactors)

Da aber der Hauptmann sahe (Evangelist, Centurion)

Wer Gottes Marter in Ehren hat (Chorus)

BBC Music Magazine

October 2009


“The bass Jakob Bloch Jespersen is finely cast as Jesus, his voice and range sonorous and his pacing thoughtful and restrained. The 12-voice choir plays the role of disciples, high priests and crowds baying for blood… Their intonation is superb, creating a rich tone in a reverberant Copenhagen Church.”

Gramophone Magazine

September 2009

“The 14 singers in this performance of Heinrich Schütz's St Luke Passion sing with superb diction, poise, intonation, blend and expressiveness.”
