Choral music for Passiontide and Easter
Anton Bruckner: Requiem in D minor
Anton Bruckner’s Requiem in D minor is scored for soloists, four-part mixed choir, small orchestra, and organ. It is a very personal, and at the same time impressive compositional testimony to Bruckner’s artistic development on his journey towards becoming a great church musician and symphonist. He composed the work as a 24-year-old, but revised it slightly aged 70. The new edition includes the revised version of 1894.

Johannes Brahms: Alto Rhapsody op. 53
With the Alto Rhapsody op. 53, another frequently-performed secular piece for choir and orchestra is now available in the most up-to-date scholarly edition, together with complete performance material. This new publication complements the Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) op. 54. The edition is based on the 2nd impression of the first printed edition, as this is regarded as the most authentic musical text following the last revisions made by the composer.
