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.Notes & Reviews:
