Description: endelssohn fans should take the opportunity offered by Carus to hear some of his numerous sacred compositions since they were almost never designed for liturgical use but were intended to share concert platforms with concertos and orchestral pieces. A good example is the 24-minute Psalm 95 (which accounts for a third of this new release) although the three shorter pieces with orchestra are equally attractive. German-English texts. Andrea L. Brown, Maria Bernius (sopranos), Monica Groop (alto), Werner Güra (tenor), Michael Volle (bass), Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Deutsch Kammerphilharmonie Bremen; Frieder Bernius.
