About

Braunfels' feeling for drama and responsiveness to words proved assets when composing not only his operas and songs, but also for those works with a spiritual dimension - his Te Deum and the Great Mass. He completed the latter in 1926, when he was at the height of his fame. It isn't a liturgical work, but it speaks with a distinct, sincere spiritual conviction.

“He is a high-romantic, firmly rooted in the German compositional tradition, and yet he has a unique voice – sensationally well-orchestrated – which makes his output so fantastic.” - Jörg-Peter Weigle
