Our latest CD "Leipziger Disputation" is now on sale!
We're thrilled to announce that our latest CD "Leipziger Disputation" is now been released! The first joint project of the internationally renowned Leipzig vocal ensembles amarcord and Calmus: The centerpiece is the splendid sonority of the twelve-part Mass by Antoine Brumel, which is said to have been performed on the occasion of the famous disputation between Martin Luther and theologian Johannes Eck 1519 at St. Thomas’s Church. A highlight of musical life in Leipzig and, at the same time, a milestone in polyphonic vocal music. The mass is complemented by compositions of the time of Luther by Josquin des Préz, Johann Walter, Thomas Stoltzer and others.
If you'd like to have some more information about this CD and the project in general feel free to have a look at our little sneak peek video.
And there's also at least two chances to hear us performing this extraordinary program together with our dear colleagues from amarcord. First, on June 16 2019 at St. Thomas Church Leipzig as part of the Bachfest Leipzig. And second, on November 7 2019 at the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin.
