Mare Balticum, Vol. 4: Pomerania - Budzińska-Bennett
Classical - Vocal
Music from northern Germany and Poland (14th– 15th century)
Agnieszka Budzińska-Bennett (conductor)
The fourth and final recording of Agnieszka Budzinska-Bennett's "Mare Balticum" project with and about music from the Baltic region, the first of which has already received the coveted ICMA, is perhaps the most beautiful. One-part melodies sung by four women in their own rhythm and yet in complete unison transport us to the bygone world of the Middle Ages. Solo songs bring us even closer to that time. For instance, when - this is just one example - Lorenza Donadini as Mary laments the death of Jesus, we hear the grief of a living mother over the death of her own child.
What a pity that this excursion into the past lasts only 79 minutes!
