A wonderful precursor to Bach’s two great Passions, Schütz’s Auferstehungs-Historie provides an intriguing mixture of Renaissance austerity and Baroque sensuousness that cannot fail to move the listener. Jacobs and the Concerto Vocale deliver a highly expressive, even hypnotic interpretation that makes the very most of Schütz’s gorgeous dissonances. The inclusion of one of the 1647 Sinfoniae sacrae further highlights the lyricism of a still underrated composer.
