Brahms: Mass & Motets
The choral music of Johannes Brahms spans much of his career as a composer. Its influences range from folk music to contrapuntal masterworks of the Renaissance and Baroque. Musicology has in its infancy in the Romantic period, and Brahms was fascinated with ‘old’ music, especially the works of Bach. This illuminating selection of a cappella choral music features the supreme talents of the Swedish Radio Choir led by Peter Dijkstra.
