About the album
On Meine Seele (My soul), Canadian countertenor Matthew White breathes new life into sacred cantatas by German composers who preceded Bach. Listeners are invited to rediscover forgotten works by such 17th-century German masters as Franz Tunder, Christoph Bernhard, and Philipp Heinrich Erlebach.
Alexander Weimann is one of the most sought after harpsichordists, ensemble directors, soloists and chamber music partners of his generation.
The ensembleTempo Rubato owes its name to the musical practice of diverging from the unrelenting and gradual rhythm for a short period of time in a piece, allowing for solo freedom. Its historical origins go back to baroque sources, where it was first detected.
This recording features the compositions of JS Bach, Franz Tunder, Erlebach, Rosenmuller, JM Bach, Bernhard, Muffat, and Schutz.
