One of an extensive series of box sets presenting the greatest, most famous and best-loved choral masterworks of western music, encompassing more than 700 years of musical history, from the Flemish masters Josquin and Ockeghem, through the mastery of Bach, the grace of Mozart, the romantics Brahms and Mendelssohn to 20th century masters Britten and Rutter.

Beautifully repackaged with fresh and inspirational artwork, this is a highly attractive series.

Brahms conducted amateur choirs throughout his professional life, both as a useful source of income and because he enjoyed his contact with enthusiastic, amateur music-makers, not least the ladies in his various choirs. It also gave him a chance to explore music of former eras, by Bach, Schütz, Buxtehude and more, which Brahms considered a vital part of his musical heritage and which, practically speaking, he was bringing back to life in a culture that barely knew its own history.

We may with some justice speak of Brahms the period instrument pioneer. These splendid modern performances come from a choir of a similar size to the one Brahms would have recognised, and are directed by the experienced choral trainer Nicol Matt.
