Description: What's even more impressive than the variety of compositional styles on display here - from the tonal explorations of the early (1923) op. 22 and frankly tonal Jacobean settings of 1939 to the rigorous twelve-tone structures applied to Kafka's brittle aphorisms and the amazing mixture of Renaissance polyphony and dodecaphony in the Five Prayers - is the quality and depth of the texts chosen. First recording of Krenek's arrangement (for an American tour) of Monteverdi's famous lament. German-English texts. RIAS Chamber Choir; Hans-Christoph Rademann.
