The third volume in the ARS NOVA Copenhagen and Paul Hillier’s Heinrich Schütz series showcases the Johannes-Passion (St. John’s Passion) and Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreutz (Seven Last Words of Christ). Dacapo’s Schütz series aims to record all the passions and oratorios of Schütz and this is another fine example of the early Baroque vocal music that is said to have inspired J.S Bach.

Heinrich Schutz: Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz, SWV 478

Introitus: Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stund


Und es war um die dritte Stunde (Evangelist)

Es stund aber bei dem Kreuze Jesu seine Mutter (Evangelist)

Aber der Ubeltater einer (Evangelist)

Und um die neunte Stunde schrie Jesus laut (Evangelist)

Darnach als Jesus wusste, dass schon alles vollbracht (Evangelist)

Und einer aus den Kriegesknechten (Evangelist)

Und abermal rief Jesus Laut (Evangelist)



Heinrich Schutz: Johannes-Passion, SWV 481


Introitus: Das Jesus solches geredet hatte (Evangelist)

Die Schar aber und der Oberhauptmann (Evangelist)

Da furten sie Jesum von Kaipha (Evangelist)

Da nahm Pilatus Jesum (Evangelist)

Da ihn die Hohenpriester und die Diener sahen (Evangelist)

Sie nahmen aber Jesum (Evangelist)


BBC Music Magazine

June 2010


“Paul Hillier paces the narrative subtly, from down-to-earth description to slow contemplation...The singers, admirably matched, are helped by the church acoustic, which warms the tone without obscuring detail...the simplicity of the bare, unadorned line is hauntingly beautiful and enhanced by excellent recording.”

Gramophone Magazine

August 2010

“The five singers of Ars Nova Copenhagen blend beautifully in the deeply expressive Introitus and the fantastic quality of consort singing is no more notable than the touching communication of the text. Each singer performs their solo lines insightfully...this spellbinding performance is well worth acquiring.”
