The Burial of Christ. Composed by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. Choir; Softcover. Partitur-Bibliothek (Score 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. Score and parts. 32 pages. Breitkopf and Haertel #PB 5390. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.PB-5390).

ISBN 9790004211236. 9 x 12 inches. German.

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.,,Die eminent wichtige Neuausgabe der Choralkanzonen wird hoffentlich diesen grandiosen Kompositionen Karg-Elerts endlich die Stellung zukommen lassen, die sie im Bereich von Musik in der Kirche eigentlich seit ihrer Entstehung verdient hatten.
