Schütz’s Musicalische Exequienfrom 1636 and Bach’s Trauer Ode a century later attest.These qualities are rendered with a delicious, ruminative prayerfulness and unforced rhetoric by Lionel Meunier’s 
Vox Luminis. Listen to ‘Ach wie elend ist unser Zeit’ (‘O how wretched is our time on earth’) and you’ll hear the kind of textural simplicity, intuitive pacing and gentle accentuation which evokes, with mesmerising authority, just how fervently the congregation for Prince Heinrich von Reuss’s meticulously planned funeral must have trusted in the power of resurrection.
