NoonSong - a choral liturgy every Saturday at noon

Reformation music from the 16th century shapes this NoonSong. The Weimar cantor Melchior Vulpius is certainly the most misjudged and is the discovery of today's NoonSong, although some of his song melodies can still be found in hymnals today. This may be due to his demanding and peculiar style of composition. His psalm setting heard today is unusually written for a seven-part choir. For the numerical symbolism of the seven, he accepts the compositional challenge of an unbalanced number of voices.
