Review By Lee Passarella,Audiophile Audition,November 2012

Stimmwerck is a…highly respected German male vocal ensemble: Franz Vitzthum, countertenor; Klaus Wenk and Gerhard Hölzle, tenor; and Marcus Schmidl, bass-baritone. They are joined, for just one number, by soprano Nele Gramß, the penultimate one, Thomas Stoltzer’s model of Renaissance polyphony, O admirabile commercium. Elsewhere in the program, they’re tastefully accompanied by lute and percussion (Christoph Eglhuber), organ (Michael Ebert), and harp (Reinhild Waldek), lute and organ having the odd solo here and there. Joyful, yes.

Interspersed with the Renaissance and Baroque compositions are a number of Gregorian chants that add to the air of austere beauty the whole program maintains.
