Florilegium Portense is a collection of motets which was first published in Leipzig in 1618 and which arose from the practice of the song school in the Landesschule in Pforta. Thomas Cantor Bach chose a few of the 265 German and Italian motets from this unique collection for study each week. The famous Belgian ensemble, Vox Luminis will record the entire collection in the next few years – at the outset of this journey they perform in the collection’s place of origin, the church in Schulpforte.
