CLASSICAL CHORAL WORKS CD
By Mozart (Double CD), Mendelssohn & Brahms (Single CD)
3 CD Set / Running time for all: 75:45 minutes!
In celebration of 50 recordings over 25 years, Glori Dei Cantores releases a commemorative set which combines the work of three masters.
Mendelssohn and Brahms brought their great melodic gifts and deeply felt expression to the motet form, showcased in Sacred Motets of Mendelssohn and Brahms (Single CD). The clarity and meaning of the sacred texts was of primary importance to both composers, and their study of Palestrina and Bach strongly influenced the style of these superb works. This recording features the rarely performed motet Aus tiefer Noth by Mendelssohn, and three Brahms motets written as chamber music for voices, yet rich and varied in expression.
The world has enjoyed the genius of Mozart through his symphonies, operas, chamber and piano music. Mozart: Rare Choral Works (DOUBLE CD) presents a look at a side of Mozart that is not so well known: his contribution to music for the Church. Included in this recording are two seldom heard major works of great beauty and invention:
Davide Penitente K. 469 and the
Litaniae de venerabili altaris Sacramento K. 243.
Also included are a further litany, several motets, and two of the famous church sonatas for small orchestra and organ. Mozart: Rare Choral Works will be a profound experience for the classical music lover and for those who are interested in the sacred side of one of the best-loved composers of all time. Place into the cart or wish list above.
Some tracks included are:
Veni Sancte Spiritus, Misericordias Domini, Venite populi, Regina coeli, Heilig, Swi Geistliche Choere OP 115 and so much more!
