Ingrid Kertesi, soprano * * József Mukk, tenor ? Hungarian State Opera Choir * Camerata Budapest * László Kovács Some of the world's greatest sacred masterpieces are heard on this disc, performed by some of the world's leading vocal ensembles. The journey ranges from Thomas Tallis's extraordinary Spem in alium to César Franck's immortal Panis angelicus. Pergolesi's Stabat mater is a masterpiece of the early eighteenth century. Mozart, who as a 14 year old had copied out Allegri's Miserere from memory, is represented by his beautiful Ave verum corpus. It is impossible to omit the Bach-Gounod Ave Maria from a journey that crosses geographical borders and spans the centuries. Helmut WALCHA (1907-1991) Chorale Preludes, Volume 2 Wolfgang Rübsam, organ Lobt Gott, ihr Christen alle gleich * Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her Herr Christ, der einig Gottes Sohn * O süsser Herre Jesu Christ * Gottes Sohn ist kommen Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern * O Jesu Christe, wahres Licht Lobt Gott den Herrn, ihr Heiden all * O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde groß O armer Sünder * Jesu, deine Passion * Christ ist erstanden Mit Freuden zart zu dieser Fahrt * Komm, Gott Schöpfer, heiliger Geist Heiliger Geist, du Tröster mein * Such, wer da will, ein ander Ziel Lobet den Herren, den mächtigen König der Ehren * Wenn wir in höchsten Nöten sein Gott des Himmels und der Erden * Der Tag ist hin, mein Jesu, bei mir bleibe A native of Leipzig and steeped in the musical tradition of J. S. Bach, Helmut Walcha was one of the most influential organists of the 20th century. Building on Baroque examples, Walcha started composing the Chorale Preludes during the war years and they became popular teaching pieces as well as ideal vehicles for expressing the clarity and colour of organs both historic and new. As one of Walcha's most renowned students Wolfgang Rübsam is uniquely authoritative in his interpretations. This is the second of four volumes of Walcha's complete Chorale Preludes. Wolfgang Rübsam studied under Helmut Walcha and Marie-Claire Alain, and in the United States with Robert T. Anderson. Upon winning the 1973 Grand Prix de Chartres in Interpretation, he became Professor of Church Music and Organ at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.
