Notes & Reviews:

With his Männerchorvereinigung and the brass ensemble of the Anton Bruckner Private University in Linz, Thomas Kerbl presents the second edition of secular men's choirs. Bruckner's own choir experience as a bass and his activity as a musical director formed the basis for a vast number of choir works, in which the large quantity of secular works displays a hitherto hardly known facet in Bruckner's oeuvre, as he was frequently reduced to his function as a church musician. Trained as a pianist in Linz, Thomas Kerbl has been dean of artistic studies at the Bruckner University since 2009.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
These pieces are extraordinary and far from easy; intonation can be a nightmare, and Bruckner will occasionally run the tenors up to high C. The performances, recorded in concert in 2012 in the Linz old cathedral (Alter Dom), are excellent. The choir, numbering 31, has a rich, blended sound; and they handle the chromatic writing quite well. This recording would be a fine choice for people who admire Bruckner's motets. The notes supply extensive information on each piece, and German texts are included.
