Notes & Reviews:
Fourteen of the works on this recording of Aemilian Rosengart's sacred choral music are world premiere recordings. Father Aemilian Rosengart of Ochsenhausen was one of the monastic composers of the south German Late Baroque. Born in Swabia, he attended a school run by the Augustinians and learned music solely by listening and performing. He was a professor of theology and philosophy as well as director of music in Ochsenhausen. Each piece reveals one particular aspect of the musical culture of the period as manifested in the context of the church.
International Record Review
As this disc shows, Rosengart was a proficient and lively, if not particularly profound composer, with an excellent melodic gift... ... .The period-instrument orchestra Ars Antiqua Austria is truly superb, led by the violinist Gunar Letzbor, an authority in his own right on 17th and 19th Century South German and Austrian music.
