Canzona. Composed by Sigfrid Karg-Elert (1877-1933). 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. Choral score. Breitkopf and Haertel #CHB-5307-02. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.CHB-5307-02).

Item Number: BR.CHB-5307-02

ISBN 9790004412299. 7.5 x 10.5 in 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.
