Unique choral works and rarities from the Austrian master.

Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) is today recognized as a leading symphonic composer of the Viennese school in the direct lineage of Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert. Nine of his 11 symphonies are central to the late Romantic orchestral repertory, with the three mature masses and Te Deum representing the final flowering of the Austro-German symphonic choral tradition as exemplified by the festive mass-oratorios of Haydn and Schubert. A less familiar side of Bruckner's work is found in his many smaller occasional pieces for choir, some with instrumental accompaniment, all of which, in contrast to the symphonies, take only a few minutes in performance. These short choral works, both sacred and secular, date from all periods of Bruckner's creative life, which is to say from his first known work as a child of 11, to the last completed opus in 1893. In many cases, the motets and choruses show a development of Bruckner's skill and imagination paralleling that seen in his better-known symphonies.

Review:
"...The choral works, in particular, were written more often than not for local church choirs or amateur choral societies - often of professional caliber, of course, but groups who were there not so much to make a beautiful sound as to cherish the meaning of the words through the music. This is precisely the quality that Robert Shewan and his singers have captured in this exceptionally generous program of sacred and secular choral works. Some of the tempos are quite slow, but so rich are the sounds, and so telling the choir's seeming joy in the words, that time seems suspended....This is a deeply moving release, and the sonic are really gorgeous."
