Newly published: Works for mixed voice unaccompanied choir II

Volume II/9, published by Carus-Verlag, is now available.

This second volume comprises Reger's mixed choruses composed between 1904 and 1914. The sacred works predominate, with the large motets op. 110 (“Mein Odem ist schwach”, “Ach Herr, strafe mich nicht!”, “O Tod, wie bitter bist du”), the Acht geistliche Gesänge op. 138 and the fragmentary Vater unser. Liturgical Gebrauchsmusik is represented by the Easter motet Lasset uns den Herren praisen, the Vier Kirchengesänge and the English Responsories. The secular works are dominated by the Zwölf Chöre aus dem Volksliederbuch, flanked by the Good Night written for a school book and the Abschiedslied for Fritz Stein.
