Notes and Editorial Reviews

White's performances are striking - expressive, dramatic, and lyrical, without being over the top. He produces a beautiful tone that only opens into a vibrato at expressively appropriate moments, inflecting the phrases and delivering the text with rhetorical flair and flawless intonation. The instrumental support is at a similar level. This is a delight for fans of the countertenor voice and those interested in this repertoire.

- Early Music America

This recording begins with an early cantata by Bach (Widerstehe doch der Sünde) but then moves back into the 17th century (Heinrich Schütz, Franz Tunder, Johann Rosenmüller, Johann Michael Bach, Christoph Bernhard). It then returns to the early 18th
Read more century with the final work, a cantata by Philipp Heinrich Erlebach. The vocal works are complemented by instrumental pieces, a sinfonia by Tunder, extracts from a suite by Erlebach, a passacaglia for organ by Georg Muffat and a set of dances by Rosenmüller. J.S. Bach, Schütz and Rosenmüller are the only composers here who are at all well known today. It is good to hear the religious music of other German composers of the Early Baroque, especially when sung by the countertenor Matthew White, who is a fine interpreter of this music.
