Day 344: Choral Music IV

BrahmsCD38I was tempted to write, “Please make it stop.”

But then I continued to listen.

And I noticed the beauty of the voices – especially the sopranos – and I my brain wouldn’t let my fingers type those words.

There’s something captivating about today’s CD of Choral Music, which features six compositions:

3 Gesange Op. 42

7 Lieder Op. 62

Lieder und Romanzen Op. 93a

5 Gesange Op. 104

Quartets Op. 92

from 6 Quartets Op. 112

Here are the performers:

Chamber Choir of Europe
Jurgen Meier piano
Nicol Matt conductor

Although I really can’t envision a time when I’d listen to this again, I don’t feel an aversion to it as I have Brahms’ previous Choral Music. I may have to (grudgingly) give this a Favorite award.

The voices are beautiful.
