Extract from the introduction:

The third CD from the series „Engelschöre“ (Angelic Choirs) of the Knabenchor Hösel intends to reach not only the “intellectual” heads of the friends of classical choir music but also the hearts of all listeners. With this in mind, the Knabenchor Hösel has started an edition, together with the concertino musikverlag, that aims to make the most beautiful European choir music sung by angelic boys’ voices available to a large audience. The aim was to both improve well-known works and discover new ones.

The conductor Toralf Hildebrandt and the composer Gerhard Rabe have not spared any effort to rediscover in international libraries and private collections “gems of choir music“ that had been considered forgotten for a long time. They were particularly successful in their endeavours in Southern Germany, France and England. Many treasures of choir music still remain to be retrieved; therefore this CD is just another beginning. Our audience may look forward to “Angelic choirs”, sung by angelic voices.
