Hear German Romantic choral music at its best. Josef Rheinberger had been influenced by Brahms, Mendelssohn, and others. As a prolific composer, Rheinberger was remarkable for his power of invention, masterful technique, and a noble, solid style. Anton Bruckner, on the contrary, revered Wagner, with his music containing a rich harmonic language that propelled Romantic music into the 20th century.
