About

Franz Joseph Aumann was born in 1728, in the city of Traismauer, and studied in Vienna. In 1753, aged only 25, he established himself at St Florian, where he remained until his death in 1797. He composed 12 Requiems, in addition to masses, motets, litanies, offertories and oratorios.

In the Requiem recorded here, the listener is confronted with early Baroque opulence: the use of almost exclusively solo instrumental parts and singers brings a transparency and layered effect to the composition.

This recording marks the beginning of a long-term cooperation between Ars Antiqua Austria under Gunar Letzbor, the St Florianer Sängerknaben and the label Pan classics.

Recorded 2008.
