About the album

Another very special addition to our highly successful series of albums with the unique and world famous Netherlands Chamber Choir conducted by Uwe Gronostay! These are the seven beautiful and intensely moving Motets for mixed a cappella chorus by Bruckner, to which the Geistliche Gesänge, Op. 138 by Max Reger, were added; the composer's last great a cappella choir composition. Bruckner wrote his Motets for church performance, some of them for the Augustinian monastery in St. Florian with which he had such special connections during the whole of his life. In the booklet are the texts oft he Bruckner Motets and of Reger's Geistliche Gesänge, with translations in to German, English and French.
Prachtige werken van Bruckner en Reger uitgevoerd door een wereldberoemd koor
Dit album vormt weer een zeer bijzondere toevoeging aan de succesvolle reeks van het unieke en wereldberoemde Nederlands Kamerkoor die geleid werden door Uwe Gronostay! Het bevat de prachtige en intens ontroerende Zeven Motetten voor gemengd a capellakoor van Anton Bruckner, en daarnaast de Geistliche Gesänge Opus 138 van Max Reger, zijn laatste grote a capellawerk. Bruckner schreef zijn Motetten voor uitvoeringen in de kerk. Sommige van hen werden voor het Augustijnenklooster in St. Florian gecomponeerd, waarmee Bruckner tijdens zijn hele leven een bijzondere band had.

Het Nederlands Kamerkoor is in 1937 opgericht door de legendarische dirigent en pianist Felix de Nobel, en is een volledig professioneel vocaal ensemble. Ook al voert het voornamelijk a capella werken of werken met begeleiding door één instrument uit, het koor werkt ook regelmatig samen met beroemde orkesten en ensembles als het Schönberg Ensemble en het Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest. Het repertoire van het koor omvat bijna het geheel van de Westerse muziek, reikend van de vroege Middeleeuwen tot aan de late 20e eeuw.

It results in concerts that are not only perceived as beautiful, but that appeal to all senses.  Education and participation are a vital part of the choir’s mission. The Netherlands Chamber Choir provides coaching, workshops, and ‘adopts’ choirs as supporting act for their own concerts.  Besides their own concert series, the choir often collaborates with renowned ensembles such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, ASKO|Schönberg, La...
