They are among the most important testimonies of music and can now finally be heard in Baden-Baden: We are talking about the vocal ensembles of the Renaissance. The great treasure of this time was vocal music. Motets and madrigals, classically in five voices: in miniature, indeed, "symphonies for singing voices". No wonder that the soloists of the Balthasar Neumann Choir devote themselves to these masterpieces with joy. Especially since all the voices are in harmonic equilibrium with each other - unless one is singing of agonies of love. But then there are harmonies that are as beautiful as they are painful.
