Weckmann probably composed all three lamentations in 1663, the year of a great plague epidemic in Hamburg in which his wife died. Es liegt die Stadt so wüste - The city lies in waste - is a timeless masterpiece by any standard, certainly a work of the baroque yet so starkly original and individualized that only Bach ever matched it. The final vocalinstrumental motet on this CD - 'Wenn der Herr die Gefangenen - is a showpiece setting of Psalm 126, for vocal quartet, 2 violins, 2 bass viols and basso continuo. Cantus Cölnn and its director Konrad Junghänel have never sounded better than in this performance . Cantus Cölln Konrad Junghänel. Other Albums by Cantus Cölln. Heinrich Schutz: Psalmen Davids.

Weckmann: Wie liegt die Stadt so wüste. Weckmann, Matthias Sieffert, Max ed. Publication date. Roughly contemporary with Buxtehude, Matthias Weckmann is another example of the rich brew of Venetian and French influences that coloured the devotional music of the Hanseatic League. The Sacred Concerto of the title opens with a harrowing depiction of a devastated city: Jerusalem, according to the text, but also Hamburg, where Weckmann's wife was a victim of the plague. As ever with Cantus Cölln, the singing is tonally idiosyncratic but fervent, the playing is beyond reproach. Beautiful and terribly, terribly sad. More about .
