FELIX MENDELSSOHN (1809-1847): Sacred Choral Works - All the motets, psalms, chorale cantatas, smaller church works and the symphony cantata Lobgesang
Catalogue Number: 06N043
Description: originally issued by Carus in 1983, 1985, 1987, 1997, 1999, 2006 and 2008 (meaning that I probably offered half of them after taking over RI in mid-1997). The number of works is 50 (too many to list in full), with a handful of excerpts from further compositions; 21 of them are with orchestra. Discs are in individual sleeves which apparently feature the same cover art as their individual CD releases. The 84-page booklet includes 12 pages each of German and English notes and, amazingly, complete German-English texts. 10 CDs. Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Ensemble '76 Stuttgart, Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn, members of the Bamberg Symphony, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra; Frieder Bernius.
