55 Motets from the Pelplin Tablature
Polski Chór Kameralny (Polish Chamber Choir)
Musica Fiorita / Jan Lukaszewski
Andreas Hakenberger spent his entire professional career within the territory of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, remaining for 20 years as chapel-master at the lutheran Church of St Mary’s in Gdansk. Here he wrote his most outstanding works, a sequence of important motets written in cori spezzati, or polychoral technique. The rich tonal colouring obtained through the combinations of vocal parts is enhanced by the variety of the accompanying instrumentation. With astute use of imitation and rhetorical pauses, Hakenberger’s music emerges as richly colourful, graceful and vibrant.
