Lechner, Leonhard, Passion according to St John EMP1065 £6.60
ATTB Scoring legend Passion (as Gospel) ISMN M-2056-1065-4
Lechner's Passion setting exists only in a manuscript in the University Library in Kassel, where it has the title Historia der Passion und Leidens unsers einigen Erlösers und Seligmachers Jesu Christi nach dem alten lateinischen Kirchenchoral mit vier Stimmen componiert The text is in fact drawn from all four Gospels, and was possibly influenced by Osiander, who was Hofprediger at the court (Hof) of Moritz, Landgraf zu Hessen in Kassel. Lechner's is the only German Passion setting which uses the chant melody of traditional Passion recitation as a cantus firmus. The original is in high clefs and this performing edition is set a fourth lower, especially suitable for male voices. The original spelling of the text has been retained, rather than force a modern German wine into the old skin.
