Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Domkantorei St. Pölten, under the direction of Otto Kargl, is one of the most profound amateur choirs in Austria. The group was founded in 1992 by Kappelmeister Otto Kargle. It is an exquisite special ensemble with only about 20 members and the group is mainly concerned with music written prior to the year 1800 as well as contemporary choral literature. In addition to the liturgical service at the cathedral church in St. Polten, the ensemble regularly performs at the Carinthian Summer, the Brucknerhaus Linz, the Musica Sacra Festival, and the Festspielhaus St. Polten. Their repertoire includes the a cappella literature of the sixteenth century as well as church music of the Italian and German early baroque. Their latest release is Read more a live recording of one of their concerts in which they performed Bach’s cheerful cantata “Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele”, which premiered in October 293 years ago, among others.
