Christ Church Cathedral Choir: Egon Wellesz

Mass in F Op. 51
I Sing of a Maiden
Offertorium in Ascensione Domini
Missa Brevis
To Sleep Op. 94

A Catholic convert from Judaism, Egon Wellesz composed a significant amount of sacred music including five masses, two of which--the first and the last--feature on this disc. Wellesz's operas of the 1920s contain a significant amount of virtuoso choral writing, and this quality carries over into his church music, although on the whole they are written in a simpler, more traditionally tonal idiom.
