Directed by Joseph Flummerfelt

Director and conductor of The 37 mixed-voice Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ since 1971, Joseph Flummerfelt has made the Choir synonymous with musical excellence, working with eminent conductors and performing with the world's major orchestras. "Singing for Pleasure" is all about Brahms, and has 23 pieces, 9 movements of "Liebeslieder-Walzer, Op. 52, the 3 sweet a cappella movements of "Deutsche Volkslieder," 5 movements of "Zigeunerlieder, Op. 103," "O Heiland, Reiss Die Himmel Auf, Op. 74, No. 2," Four Quartets, and Neue Liebeslieder-Walzer, Op. 65." Most songs are piano-accompanied. The Westminster is the perfect choir for this music, with the strength and passion for a dramatic piece like "No. 5 Braunner Bursche fuhrt zum Tanze," and the perfect harmonic pitch for pieces like "In stiller Nacht" and "No. 7 Kommt dir manchmal in den Sinn." A lovely collection of lesser-known works by the master composer.
