Description: Some collectors may well be amazed at how deep Bruckner’s Missa Solemnis is still rooted in the solid tradition of Viennese Classicism. In this recording, this rarely heard and recently re-edited and newly published gem is put into the context of the inauguration service of collegiate provost Friedrich Mayr on September 14, 1854 in St. Florian, for which it was written. It is interspersed with the original Proper settings by Führer, Eybler, and Gänsbacher. Johanna Winkel (soprano), Sophie Harmsen (mezzzo), Sebasatian Kohlhepp (tenor), Ludwig Mittelhammer (baritone), RIAS Chamber Choir, Akademie für alte Musik Berlin; Łukasz Borowicz.
