Name that choir

Last week’s glut of things that are heilig continued with Bruckner’s second setting of the liturgy in a first-rate performance from the Chorus sine nomine. More about that can be read here.

A short note about the Thielemann Parsifal at the Wiener Staatsoper – my non-blogging job is very interesting but heavy on the workload and I’ve not found the time yet to write about Sunday, but as tonight is the final performance I will say this briefly now: if you are in Vienna and have the time to spare then get yourself down to the returns or Stehplatz queue, because what comes out of that pit simply has to be heard. (Jaja, Wilhelm Sinkovicz isn’t always wrong.)
