    “This third disc by Ensemble Polyharmonique is an impassioned plea to devote even more attention than before to the diversity of epochs.”

    With a selection from the 31-number Chor-Music auff Madrigal-Manier (1652/53), combined with duets and tercets from Andreas Hammerschmidt’s Opus primum Musicalischer Andacht Erster Theil (1638), this first recording shows the formal diversity of the composer, who was mainly active in Zittau, and clarifies his ambition for creative handling of genre patterns.
