Description: In keeping with the German Protestant Church’s interest in simplicity, Reger wrote these five chorale cantatas in the period 1903-06, using one to three soloists, a couple of instrumenalists (the artists listed below do not all perform in any of the cantatas) and small chorus (which, in actual usage, could be the congregation). It seems that Reger got tired of the simplicity thing in O Haupt voll Blut though, where there are opportunities for oboe, violin and organ to engage in rich emotional passages with heavy chromaticism. German-English texts. Dorothea Wagner (soprano), Marie Henriette Reinhold (alto), Florian Sievers (tenor), Michael Schönheit (organ), Reinhold String Quartet, Rainer Hucke (double bass), Gundel Jannemann-Fischer (oboe), Gewandhaus Children’s Choir, Gewandhaus Choir; Frank-Steffen Elster.
