Notes and Editorial Reviews

Five hundred years of Austrian choral music; fifty years of the Vienna Madrigal Choir - these milestones were the inspiration for the varied program on this CD. The program was recorded at the end of the Choir's 49th season as a prelude to its jubilee year. Without this background, it would be hard to explain the unusual combination of music presented here. The Choir's intention was to provide something for everyone, a selection from a broad range of works it has performed for audiences at home and abroad. This is but a sample of the Vienna Madrigal Choir's huge repertoire.
