The Bach Choir Salzburg gained its international reputation under their long-time conductor Alois Glaßner through continuous work with the ensemble sound as well as the great repertoire width, ranging from renaissance works to oratorios, a-capella repertoire to opera performances. With the album «Rejoice», featuring Wolfgang Kogert, organ, the Bach Choir presents selected works for choir and organ, last but not least the eponymous Rejoice with the lamb Op. 30 by Benjamin Britten. Further works include For Io, I raise up Op. 145 by Charles Stanford, The Beatitudes by Arvo Pärt, Beatus vir by James MacMillan, Herbert Howells' Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, O sacrum convivium by Olivier Messiaen and the Psalm 135 by Charles Ives. The great stylistic diversity of one of the leading Austrian vocal ensembles comes into its own with this new release. The Bach Choir Salzburg was founded in 1983 and soon came to prominence as one of Austria's leading vocal ensembles. During the last ten years it has additionally acquired an international reputation. Since 2003 its artistic director has been Alois Glaßner. The choir appears regularly at the Salzburg Festival, where it has been acclaimed at numerous concerts as well as in opera productions. The Bach Choir Salzburg has appeared with many outstanding conductors and with orchestras of the eminence of the Vienna Philharmonic, the Mozarteum Orchestra, the Salzburg Camerata, Les Musiciens du Louvre, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. The choir has worked closely over many years with Ivor Bolton, Leopold Hager, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Adam Fischer and Ingo Metzmacher.
