The music of Rheinberger, the Munich composition teacher and court Kapellmeister highly-regarded during his day, is now being heard again worldwide. Performances increasingly focus on his less well known or completely forgotten compositions, something which is largely thanks to the publication of his output in the Complete Edition volumes from Carus. Responding to practical needs, most of the works in the Complete Edition volumes are also available as separate editions with performance material. Four choral collections make Rheinberger’s music available to all those who are largely unfamiliar with it, providing representative selections of this valuable choral literature and creating an appetite for more.
