Notes & Reviews:

The Choral Society of St. Augustine at Vienna's Jesuit Church is a church choir. The choir occupies a special place in the Viennese musical scene, since it sings nearly every Sunday and holy day. They are joined by soloists and an orchestra made up of musicians who come from Vienna's great orchestras in a Christmas Eve program at the Jesuit Church.
