Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Swiss poetess and Benedictine nun Silja Walter (1919 - 2011) lived at the Convent of Fahr, just outside Zurich, from 1948 until her death. Silja Walter was a poet of extraordinary versatility, attaining a high degree of recognition for her work, especially with her poems. She also wrote meditative observations, prose, festival performances, oratorios and plays in the tradition of the mystery plays. In the 1990s she entered into a close working relationship with the Swiss composer Carl Rütti. This CD features two of their largest works; the "Exodus Mass" and "Frieze of the listeners" subtitled "A song cycle for mixed choir singing as one voice and organ, inspired by figures of Ernst Barlach." The album Read more also includes a recording of Silja Walter reciting her own poems. Read less
