Description: Distler is known for his committment to the choral tradition of the 17th and 18th centuries and his part in the renewal of those musical values in the Germany of his time. Here, an early work (the op. 2) shows his early loyalty to the Romantic tradition, op. 3 the beginning of his adoption of earlier music as a model and the remainder mature examples of his simplified sacred music.
