Vienna Boys' Choir - Mon, 13 Aug 2012

With three shows due to be performed on these shores in early October, there's never been a better time to experience the beauty of 24 of the world's youngest voices in one of our oldest musical traditions...

For more than 500 years the Vienna Boys' Choir (or Wiener Sängerknaben) has been an enduring symbol of Europe, having worked with composers such as Fux, Salieri, Haydn and Bruckner, and conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Sir George Solti.

The choir is one of the world's most active musical ensembles and performs over 300 concerts a year. While providing the music for the Sunday Mass in Vienna's Imperial Chapel -- which they have done since 1498! -- the choir also tours internationally, performing each year in some of the world's finest concert halls.

This stunning, newly-packaged double disc set presents two classic albums: 'Sacred Songs' which includes works by Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Eybler, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Fauré, Händel and Verdi plus 'Folk Songs From Around the World', featuring hits from Japan, Brazil, Portugal, France, Italy and more.
