Choral Gems: Favorite Sacred Classics


Some of the most widely known and loved music of the past several hundred years comes from the sacred choral/orchestral masterworks of our greatest composers.

Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and others created many of their most profound and spiritual statements in their sacred choral music.

Hearing music such as Bach's Mass in B minor, Handel's Messiah, Mendelssohn's Elijah, and Brahm's A German Requiem enables the listener to share in the emotional and intellectual insights expressed by the composers and to move to new vistas of understanding and fulfillment.

The selections on this recording have been considered by generations to be “choral gems”.
