Notes & Reviews:

When the Frauenkirche Dresden was rebuilt in 2005, its chamber choir was reconstituted with director Matthias Grünert, and in this collection celebrates the power of contemporary sacred chorales with a set that includes Missa by the Swiss composer Frank Martin along with the juxtapositions of 21st century compositions by Matthias Grünert and Percy Fletcher. Released as a part of the commemorative festivities around the 10th anniversary of the re-consecration of the Frauenkirche Dresden, this collection brings the tenets of faith, ancient and mysterious to the present in a stirring manner.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
What a nice release! In addition to an attractive, spiritually alert account of Frank Martin's Mass, we're accorded a handsome pair of sacred songs crafted by the conductor, plus three colorful, upbeat works for organ.
