Vocal Music by Johannes Brahms
With a CD totally devoted to choral music by Johannes Brahms, the Swedish Chamber Choir (previously Simon Phipps Vocal Ensemble) completes their trilogy with sacred and profane choral music. The two previous collections contain music by Benjamin Britten (FRCD-006) and Francis Poulenc (FRCD-030) respectively.

On “Geistlich und weltlich” you will hear Brahms' three great Motets and three of his profane vocal cycles: “All in careful interpretations and with rich dynamics. The most touching is the music by an aging Brahms towards the end of this CD” wrote P-G Bergfors in Göteborgs-Posten and gave it a 4 out of 5.
