Notes & Reviews:

When Max Reger threatened to get caught between the hardened fronts of the Brahmsians and Wagnerians, he self-assertively termed himself a "Selfian." Commemorating the hundredth anniversary of Reger's death, the OPUS VOCALE chamber choir considers his compositions along with works by his contemporaries Brahms, Bruckner, and Schoenberg and explores surprising interconnections between them while showing the masterful chromaticist in an entirely new light.

The program ranges from Advent and Christmas through the Lenten and Easter seasons to the end of the church year and its memorial days. Protestant church hymns and parts of the Catholic mass are brought together. Reger would have liked this combination: raised as a Catholic, he repeatedly displayed his fascination with the personal piety of Lutheran hymns, and his correction of the proof pages of the "Eight Sacred Songs" occupied him even on his deathbed.
