Rheinische Kantorei - Hermann Max
This album features iconic works of sacred music by Giacomo Meyerbeer (1791-1864) and in particular his “Hallelujah”, small cantata for 4 men, organ and choir Ad libitum, written around 1815.
This cantata was written for the religious services of the Jewish Reformed Temple of Berlin. Giacomo Meyerbeer’s father, Juda Herz Beer (1769-1825) was particularly involved in the movement to emancipate and integrate Prussian Jews into Prussian society.
