This exciting release from period ensemble Musica Fiata is a rare treat, featuring the work of composer Johann Hermann Schein (1586) and the heterogeneous collection of motets that make up his Cymbalum Sionium. Although Cymbalum Sionium has always attracted musicological interest, performances of most works within the piece have been very rare up until now. Schein’s melodic gifts, harmonic sensitivity as well as feeling for varied affects and great sense of structure enabled him to absorb an incredible range of musical influences, imbuing them with the freshness of a gifted young composer creating music which still moves us today.
