The Historia der Auferstehung Jesu Christi, or Resurrection Story, is the first oratorio work by Heinrich Sch├╝tz and was first performed in 1623 during the vespers of the third day of Easter in the Chapel of Dresden's Royal Palace. Although the original title speaks of the "joyous and victorious resurrection," it is, at it's core, a quiet and concentrated work with a refined dramaturgy in which the Easter jubilation only slowly breaks through. Sch├╝tz's work impressively captures the unspeakable and mysterious nature of the idea of resurrection in music. Ensemble Polyharmonique is a renowned collective of vocal soloists that specializes in the music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods with historical performance practice. In a larger cast and together with an outstanding instrumental ensemble, they present a high-quality, lively and stirring interpretation of the Resurrection History to which they add two wonderful Easter concertos by Heinrich Sch├╝tz and Michael Praetorius.
