Notes and Editorial Reviews

The work featured in the Octavians’ GENUIN release is 700 years old: the Kreuzleich by Heinrich “Frauenlob” von Meissen. The multi-award-winning a cappella ensemble with three countertenors takes on this fascinating work in a new guise, as a new composition by Karsten Gundermann for soloists, chamber choir, and orchestra. The result is sensational: a lively mixture of age-old and new, of archaic sounds and orchestral colors, sung and performed at the highest level. In terms of repertoire and entertainment value, highest ratings for this total work of art that inspires at every moment!
