Canzona. Composed by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Choir; stapled. Chor-Bibliothek (Choral Library). During his middle creative period, Karg-Elert developed his own, unmistakable choral style. His few choral works, which stem from the years 1912 and 1913, unquestionably belong to his major works from this period. Cantata; Early modern; Late-romantic. Choral score. 16 pages. Breitkopf and Haertel #ChB 5307-02. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.CHB-5307-02).

ISBN 9790004412299. 7.5 x 10.5 inches.

Oliver Hilmes's four new editions of Karg-Elert's most substantial choral works are being published with the same consistency and compactness shown by Karg-Elert when he wrote them in 1912/13. The reception of Karg-Elert's works, which has been quite strong in the organ domain, now obtains decisive impulses in a new direction. Joining the previously published choral canzonas "Benedictus" Op. 82 No. 1 and "Vom Himmel hoch" Op. 82 No. 2 are "Naher, mein Gott, zu dir" Op. 81 and the Passion Canzona Op. 84. Particularly charming is the unique instrumental color with which Karg-Elert sensitively enhances the choral sound in each work of this little group.
