    Geistliche Lieder
    German Romantic Choral Music 
    The Choir of Christ's College, Cambridge
    Directed by
    David Rowland
    Organists Mark Roberts and Jonathan Ellse*

    ‘this plays directly to the strengths of the Christs choir, which, since becoming mixed in 1979, has grown in stature and ambition to become one of the best in the country. The main points of interest are Josef Rheinberger’s Mass in A, which may be considered Liechtenstein’s greatest contribution to church music, and Hugo Wolf’s beautiful Sechsgeistliche Lieder after Eichendorff - but these are only singled out because the Brahms and Liszt material is relatively better known. The latter’s 0 salutaris hostia for upper voices and SATB is a highlight. David Rowland balances a choir with pinpoint precision, and the recording (in Jesus College Chapel) is sharp and responsive.’

    Choir & Organ Jan 2015

    Rarely-recorded choral works by Rheinberger, Wolf, Liszt, and Brahms give an overview of the wide range of styles in nineteenth century German choral music, from the austere polyphony of Brahms’ motets for upper voices, to the rich, chromatic writing of Hugo Wolf.

    Concludes with one of Brahms’ best-loved sacred choral works, Geistliches Lied.

    This is the sixth recording on the Regent label from the choir of Christ’s College, Cambridge, directed by David Rowland, and all have received consistently outstanding critical notices.
