CANCELED!

For around 50 years, in other words throughout his composing career, Anton Bruckner wrote sacred choral music. In the programme of the Tenebrae Choir, now regarded as one of the leading vocal ensembles in the world, some of his most important a cappella motets, including the famous Ave Maria, are juxtaposed with masterly choral works by Johannes Brahms which show the important role played by sacred music in his own oevre. At the same time the concert offers a chance to get to know the „most beautiful unaccompanied mass of the 19th century“, Josef Gabriel Weinberger's Cantus Missae.
