In the early German baroque era, composers like Heinrich Scheidemann and Andreas Hammerschmidt wrote motets in which an individual turns to God. The auspicious ensemble Le Concert Étranger confronts this purifying repertoire with radiant organ chorales from the same period and Bach's magisterial Jesu, meine Freude.
