Description
Born in Danzig to an impoverished boatman, Christoph Bernhard (1627–92) was a prodigiously talented singer who later studied with the eminent Heinrich Schütz, before forging his own career as an influential music director and composer of sacred music in Hamburg. Published in 1665, his Geistliche Harmonien includes 20 concertos with biblical texts in German for one to seven voices, while the spare orchestration makes use of organ, chitarrone (bass lute), viola, and two violins. Bernhard kept abreast of the international music scene, and these works have a warmth and grace that calls to mind the Italian madrigals of the era.

"There are many moments in these concertos where Bernhard vividly and eloquently illustrates the text. A striking example is Aus der Tiefe where the opening phrase is depicted by a rising figure going from the bottom to the top of the singer's tessitura…. This production is the only complete recording of this important collection."—Musica Dei Donum
