Description: Less well-known are Reger’s sacred songs for organ and voice (presumbaly his own arrangements of voice-and-piano originals - the notes are strangely silent on this), in which he combines his entire wealth of experience as an organ composer with melodious lines and a deep understanding of the text. They do, however, take up only a third of this disc... German-English texts. Susanne Langner (mezzo), Ullrich Böhme (organ of the Thomaskirche, Leipzig).
