Music: Leonhard Lechner (1553-1601)
Artwork: Marc Chagall - Hohelied II
Soprano: Eva Prockl
Male Voices and Production: Andreas Herrmann (Dirigent)

In my job as a classical conductor I have to do with choirs and vocal ensembles. There is some old music, that is very difficult to perform and needs plenty of time for rehearsal. It is difficult to get all the singers together for enough scheduled appointments.
So when I started with music production about three years ago, I thought about a way to realise sophisticated non-mainstream old music by recording the singers seperately and pull the music together afterwards.
The advantage is, that it is possible to bring old vocal-ensemble-scores to life without many rehearsals and personnel costs.

The "Song of Songs - Shir ha Shirim" are wonderful erotic bible-verses from about 500 BC. The South Tyrol composer Leonard Lechner composed a serial of motets with these lyrics at the end of the 16th century, which have fascinated me since a couple of years and I decided to record all of them.

This is the first part. I know this a cappella music is quite austere and a bit out of this world. Hope you enjoy it though ...

Might be interesting to read the score while listening ...

i am not an afficionado of choral music, but this is exceptionally beautiful by any standard and the narrative you provide helps us to understand the unfamiliar. rather than being austere, you communicate your love of music, which is the thing we all share.

Interesting information about your proceedings to perform older music into a new approach. A challenge for sure - with fascinating and convincing results.

ich liebe der musik!!!
i think i said it right it has been a long time since
i spoke Deutsch.
but i really do love the Classical Musik you post.
it has been in my ears since i was in the womb.
(my mother would play it for me while i was waiting to be born)
thank you for posting this wonderful music, and all the others.
i can remember sitting in concert halls listening to symphonies and chamber music in my youth.
i really do agree with the concept of recording when and while you can there is an art to keeping it straight and in time.
you did a great job of putting it all together. this is simply wonderful. i have always been fascinated by the ability of the masters to put together the large scores at one time. I do have you on that list!

"Song of Songs": what a great inspiration. So interesting to hear a 16th Century interpretation of it. For me this is pure musicality in motion. You let my inner ear not hear the lute or harpsichord that often comes with this era. Just beauty in space. Thank you.
