Leipziger Disputation (2019)

OPUS KLASSIK award for Choral Recording of the Year 2019

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 by Josquin des Préz, Johann Walter, Thomas Stoltzer and others.
