Bruckner Te Deum 22'
Mendelssohn Lobgesang Op. 52 65'

“All that has breath, praise the Lord!” We continue our annual sequence of Mendelssohn’s large-scale choral works with his answer to Beethoven’s Choral Symphony: a majestic expression of joy in mankind’s progression from darkness to enlightenment. One of Mendelssohn’s most popular works within his own lifetime but now rarely performed , the piece bursts with jubilant melodies and rich harmonies. Bruckner’s mighty Te Deum, a piece which the composer called “the pride of his life”, opens with the choir singing in blazing unison.
