Description: Becker was the director, for the last ten years of his life, of Berlin Cathedral. His psalm settings, ranging from three to ten minutes in length are fine examples of his ability to use and elaborate all of the elements of baroque, classical and romantic choral styles; the ten liturgical songs are shorter, in keeping with their liturgical purpose and frequently draw on the model of the baroque chorale. German texts. Berlin Cathedral Choral Society; Tobias Brommann. SACD hybrid.
