The proud Hanseatic city of Hamburg enjoys a special status in northern Germany – and that was already the case 400 years ago. Maritime trade made it prosperous even back then, and through skillful diplomacy and a gigantic defensive wall, the city was almost entirely spared the ravages of the 30 Years’ War, while much of the rest of Europe sank into rubble. The office of Hamburg’s city cantor was thus one of the most attractive positions that northern Germany had to offer at that time.
Thomas Selle held this position from 1641 and repaid his new home with outstanding compositions such as the St. John Passion from 1643, which is especially notable for the extraordinary colorfulness of the instrumentation. The Göttingen Baroque Orchestra, conducted by Antonius Adamske, brings it out brilliantly, providing the perfect support for the illustrious soloists.
