Product Description

Continuing the series Bachs Contemporaries, this volume concentrates on the wonderful music of Johann Schellea cousin of Kuhnau (another composer featured in this series). This immensely striking sacred music by Schelle (one of Bachs predecessors in the post of Kantor in Leipzigs famous Thomas Church) brings together a top-flight group of soloists and a large and colourful assembly of instrumentalists, and presents remarkable and splendidly varied music which not only stands up proudly in its own musical right, but also greatly enhances our understanding of Bachs own sacred writing.

Schelle is all but unknown, but worth a listen 10 Jan. 2013
By David Studhalter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a full fledged aficionado of Baroque vocal music, I was eager to hear this predecessor of Bach at St. Thomas in Leipzig. Not disappointing. I would compare Schelle to someone like Schein or Rosenmüller... not quite in the league of Heinrich Schütz or Bach, but despite being lesser known, of at least the caliber of Buxtehude or Telemann.
