Notes & Reviews:

The Lord's Prayer is the most universal prayer in Christendom, prayed by believers of all denominations. What would be more natural, then, than to bring together several settings of this prayer on a CD with the outstanding Salzburg Bach Choir? The CD was recorded in a relatively modern church in the Salzkammergut (Salzburg Province, Austria), equipped with interior wooden ceilings and walls, resulting in a very special acoustic. Alois Glassner, choral conductor and Professor of Music, University of Vienna, has been the choir's artistic director since 2003.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The Salzburg Bach Choir looks to be a group of around 35 singers, with fellows who sing nicely and a complement of sopranos and altos on loan from the heavenly choir itself. You've never heard Verdi's 'Laudi all Vergine', Grieg's 'Ave Maris Stella', or the 'Ave Marias' of Bruckner and Holst sound more ravishing than they do here. I wouldn't mind a stronger interpretive profile in spots - more antiphonal give-and-take in Gallus's 8-part 'Pater Noster', for example, and a more varied color scheme from the gentlemen of the choir when the repertoire brings them to the fore. The Oehms engineering singing out as resplendently as the choir. Nice, full booklet, too.
