• First recording for the Raumklang label
    Ensemble Ordo Virtutum will record in October 2012 a new CD for the Raumklang label featuring the music of Hermannus Contractus (Herman the Crippled, 1013-1054) of Reichenau.

    Herman, whose 1000th birthday will be remembered in 2013, was until recently only known as a chronicler and music theorist.
    Meanwhile some of his very outstanding compositions on saints of the South-German area, as for St. Wolfgang, Afra and Magnus have been rediscovered.

    This will be the first recording devoted entirely to the music of Herman and will be presented in 2013 on the UNESCO World Heritage Isle of Reichenau.

    The CD is co-produced with the SWR2, the BR and the UNESCO-World Culture Heritage Foundation Reichenau.

  • Third CD-Recording on the Christophorus label
    Ensemble Ordo Virtutum continued its collaboration with the Christophorus label with a third CD-recording again as a co-production with the SWR and in collaboration with the Library of Saint Gall.

    In April 2010 the program Notker Balbulus - Sequences, tropes and Gregorian Chant from Saint Gall Abbey was recorded.
    The CD was presented on November 28th 2010 at Saint Gall during the opening of the annual exhibition of the Library and was released in January 2011. [-> Flyer]

    "Het ensemble Ordo Virtutum weet de juiste sfeer te treffen ... Mede dankzij de prachtig vastgelegde akostiek is dit een sfeervolle cd die een tipje oplicht van de muziekpraktijk in een Duits klooster rond het jaar 1000"
    Marcel Bijlo, Klassieke Zaken 5/2010
    "The singing is excellent throughout ... It is musically captivating repertoire and historically intriguing. In particular those with a special interest in early liturgical music shouldn't miss this disc"
