Album Summary

>Weiss, Harald : Requiem ("Schwarz vor Augen und es ward Licht!")
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Hanover Boys Choir sing the debut performance of Harald Weiss's requiem "Schwarz vor Augen und es ward Licht!" Colorful soundscapes are counterbalanced by soft, percussive elements: a flowing, meditative piece of music that does justice both to the work's thematic context as well as to the pure sound ideal of a boys' choir. Alongside the liturgical texts from the Latin Mass for the Dead, the composer has compiled his own libretto from the Bible and poetry from the 19th and 20th centuries.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Weiss splits his Requiem into darker and lighter halves ('Schwarz vor Augen' and 'Es Ward Licht!') but the music is luminous and uplifting on both sides of the divide. Weiss is more than capable of sounding like himself. His writing is colorful, atmospheric, and full of evocative lines of melody that serve the prayers and poems admirably even if they don't exactly soar on their own. He also composes expertly for his boy trebles. The youngsters sound innocent, accepting, and in sympathy with the spiritual aspirations of the music. I love the Sanctus, where the choir and solo soprano ascend to the light with melting tenderness. There's expressive writing for the orchestra as well, especially in the 'Veni, Sanctus Spiritus'. All of this is captured in such voluptuous sound that I was surprised to read it was recorded in concert.
