Bruckner - E Minor Mass & Motets

Bruckner - E Minor Mass & Motets

Polyphony, Stephen Layton

Bruckner’s motets are small masterpieces, containing intensely expressive harmonic writing and a sense of personal devotion within a characteristically expansive framework. The sensuous Mass in E minor recalls his great symphonies. Grammy-nominated choir Polyphony under their inspirational director Stephen Layton offers impeccable yet passionate performances on this glorious disc.
