... without any correlation, so I'm duplicating my review from last year, and I'm still hoping for "Edition V" in the coming year.

If the Angels sing Schuetz in Heaven ...
... I might not find Eternity such a horrifying prospect!

This is the fourth box of Brilliant Classics' "Heinrich Schütz" Edition", all performed by Cappella Augustana, and this is in several ways the most 'brilliant' offering so far. It includes:
* CDs 1&2 - Schütz's second set of "Small Spiritual Concertos", Opus 9 of 1639, all 31 of them, several not available on any other CD
* CD 3 - Musikalische Exequien, Opus 7 of 1636, which is available from other ensembles, none of whom match Cappella Augustana in expressive musicianship!
* CDs 4&5 - Geistliche Chor-music, Opus 11 of 1648. The recording by the Bach Collegium Japan is okay, but it sounds like a 'summer camp' performance next to the polyphony artistry of Cappella Augustana and the interpretive energy of conductor Matteo Messori!
* CD 6 - CD-ROM including amples notes and performer info, and full texts

The early Volumes have been:
* V1 - 5 CDs, with Schütz's "Symphoniae Sacrae I & II" complete, plus his "Weihnachtshistorie". There are several very excellent recordings of the Symphonie Sacrae available, though none better than this.
* V2 - 5 CDs, with the Venetian Madrigals, Opus 1 of 1611; "Cantiones Sacrae of 1625; and the first set of "Small Spiritual Concertos", 24 of them.
* V3 - 4 CDs, with Schütz's three "Passions' and his "Resurrection History", featuring Gerd Türk and Bas Ramselaar along with Cappella Augustana.
