Notes & Reviews:
Brahms's choral music ranges from the magnificence of the Fest- und Gedenk-sprüche to ravishing opulence of the Op.17 Songs for female voices, horns and harp. He conducted amateur choirs throughout his professional life, both as a source of income and because he enjoyed contact with enthusiastic, amateur music-makers, not least the ladies in the various choirs. It also gave him a chance to explore music of former eras, by Bach, Schütz, Buxtehude and more. These modern performances come from a choir of similar size to one Brahms would have led.
