Notes and Editorial Reviews

he music of the Stift Heiligenkreuz in the Vienna woods became known throughout the world a few years ago: the CD “Chant – Music for Paradise”, on which Cistercian monks from the monastery sang Gregorian chorals, became an international chart success. On this CD, the esoteric aspect of contemplative sacred vocal music is less prominent; the focus is rather on the power of the vocal and instrumental works of the baroque age that are linked liturgically. In fact, a brother of the monastery wrote some extremely important compositions as early as the 17th century; one of the places in which he published them was the collection “Cultus Harmonicus”. From the works of Father Alberich Mazak, the musical form of a baroque liturgical mass at the Read more Stift Heiligenkreuz can also be reconstructed and this has been complemented on the CD by pieces from other composers of the 17th century. Leading the way here is the ensemble dolce risonanza, the founder and conductor of which, Florian Wieninger, reconstructed the vespers for Holy Cross Day (Exaltatione Sanctae Crucis, 14 September). The CD therefore offers a variety of ways of approaching the music: celebrate solemn vespers in the company of the dolce risonanza ensemble and the monks of the Stift Heiligenkreuz while you discover the works of an Austrian composer that were almost unknown until now and which have been preserved in the library of the Stift Heiligenkreuz.
