Luther and Music: Five hundred years after the events of the Reformation it appears clearer than ever before that the Reformation would hardly have been as successful as it was if it had not been for music. And today, more than ever, it is the music of the great musicians who were inspired by the Lutheran Reformation – like Heinrich Schütz and Johann Sebastian Bach or Felix Mendelssohn and Johannes Brahms that helps to keep the faith alive in the minds of the wider public. This collection of secular and sacred compositions offers a panoramic view spanning from the music from the days of Luther to his musical heritage up to the late Romantics.

Choralis Constantibus: Proprium in Resurrectione Domini


Ensemble Officium, Wilfried Rombach

Heinrich Isaac (c 1450-1517) was one of the most universal and versatile of all early composers and an important representative of the Netherlands school. He led a colourful life, reflected in his compositions in all musical forms and styles of the time in many languages, in a way that is comparable only with Orlande de Lassus almost 100 years later.

The main work on this recording is Isaac’s 6-part 'Missa paschalis'. It comprises the Ordinarium, the 'ordinary' sections: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei which are always present in the Mass. The Credo is however not present in the 'Missa paschalis'. In its place, this recording presents a 4-part composition by Isaac which is contained in Choir-book no. 33 in the Thuringian State and University Library in Jena.

Heinrich Isaac’s 'Missa paschalis' is altogether in the tradition of settings of the Easter Mass. Such Easter Masses were based on the first Gregorian plainsong Mass, which was prescribed exclusively for the liturgy at Easter and on the following Sundays up to Whitsuntide. Like all Isaac’s Masses using Gregorian models, the 'Missa paschalis' follows the alternatim principle, the alternation between plainsong and polyphony. It is an exceptionally fine example of Isaac’s Mass settings and its Kyrie was one of few Mass settings by him that found its way into the choir-books of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, which has a tradition of performing such works unaccompanied. This performance by Ensemble Officium continues that tradition.

This disc was commissioned for the 2004-2005 exhibition of Raphael at the National Gallery in London. It includes performances by the leading British renaissance performers. Masterpieces of sacred and secular music of the Renaissance trace the life of Raphael from the courts of Urbino, his birthplace, to Florence, where music and art both flourished under the patronage of the Medici, to his final years working at the papal court in Rome.

The Hilliard Ensemble, Kees Boeke Consort, Soloists from the Knabenchor Hannover, London Baroque

The blend between the voices is finely controlled, the tone mellow and the tuning spectacularly accurate, giving rise to an organ-like sonority that is genuinely thrilling,” wrote Gramophone magazine, praising the Hilliard Ensemble’s four singers, who excelled in an extraordinary variety of music over a 40-year career. This seven-CD collection extends from the Middle Ages to the Baroque, offering music by composers from England, France, Flanders and Germany.
