Cantus Cölln Motets

Marcos Maffei wrote (May 29, 2001):

Thanks for everybody in this list who recommended the Cantus Cölln Motets CD!

I've just received it today, and it's incredibly, awesomely beautiful!

It's been ages since a recording with music that I already knew put me in such a state of rapture. (and so instantly and definitely made useless the other version I had of it - the one by Herreweghe, which is also very good and which I liked a lot, but... )

And of course, one of the reasons (but not the only one: it is so consistently and amazingly good... that I'm in a lack of words) is that it's OVPP.

Cantus Cölln is undoubtely the best argument for it, in practice (Andrew Parrot's book is very convincing; but his recordings not quite so...); also amazingly beautiful is their cantatas CD ("Actus tragicus", BWV 4, 12, 106 & 196; HMC 901694; and by the way, the motets cd is DHM 05472 77368).

But the point of this message is just this: if it weren't for this list, I wouldn't have noticed that Cantus Cölln had also recorded the motets, and wouldn't be right now listening (again, and again) to this marvellous recording!

So, thank you again (and again).

PS: By the way, is there any other Bach Cantus Cölln cd besides these two? Of course, I have some of their recordings of other composers - Biber&Muffat, Buxtehude, and Schutz - which are also very beautiful; but... I want more of their Bach!
