Live recordings made by de Concertzender of concerts with Early Music. Two recordings of the Utrecht Early Music Festival 2017 with 17th century music of William Lawes and Heinrich Schütz by Gli Angeli Genève conducted by Stephan MacLeod and Academy of Ancient Music conducted by Richard Egarr.

 

A) Schütz’ Geistliche Chor-Musik – Gli Angeli Genève
Heinrich Schütz was a key figure between the German Renaissance and the Baroque of Bach. From his elaborate oeuvre baritone Stephan MacLeod chose a motet collection which reflects the best of Schütz: ‘Geistliche Chor-Musik’, an ode to the French-Flemish polyphony, rich in elements of the early baroque Italy.
