Description: The least known side of Liszt - sacred choral music. Like everything else, he wrote this stuff all his life and this disc gives a selection from cheerful, dance-influenced Ave Maria from 1852 to three late works from the mid 1880s which share the pared-down structures and forward-looking harmonies of his late piano and instrumental pieces. Latin, German-English texts. Sebastian Borleis, Nikolj Budzyn (organ), I Vocalisti Chamber Choir; Hans-Joachim Lustig.
