Rheinberger: Chorballaden II (Gesamtausgabe, Bd. 17)


Among Rheinberger’s three choral ballads for men’s choir and orchestra contained in this volume, Das Tal des Espingo op. 50 deserves especially to be rediscovered. The work is based on a ballad by the poet Paul Heyse which describes, in vivid verses, how an army of Moors are reminded of their home during a trek through the Pyrenees when, just at this moment, they fall prey to an ambush by the Basques. In its original form Das Tal des Espingo was a work for men’s choir a cappella. This version has been published for the first time in the appendix of volume 17.
