Bruckner himself once said, "When God asks me 'what have you done with the talent I gave you, my lad?' I will give him a score of my 'Te Deum' and I hope He will judge me mercifully."
Judging by the glorious fanfare-like music at the beginning of this CD, Bruckner really had nothing to worry about! However, as tempted as you may be to press 'repeat' on your sound system after track 5, don't! (even though I did myself!)
The next ten tracks, a set of motets, are full of atmosphere and warmth providing a wonderful contrast to the 'Te Deum' and are great to listen to when you just need to relax.
The final tack, 150. Psalm, is definitely worth the wait and gives you yet another excuse to listen to the entire CD. Bruckner regarded this work as his greatest cantata and I have no reason to disagree!
An absolute bargain for the quality of music. If you love choral music buy this CD and if you don't, you will once you have heard this!

By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Oct. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Jochum was a prominent advocate of Bruckner, and whether or not there are other available versions of this sacred music I imagine he and his Berlin choir and orchestra will be the first port of call both for committed Brucknerians and for the rest of us. 7 of the 15 pieces here were recorded between 1966 and 1971. The dates of the others, including the final Psalm 150 in which the recording shows a few signs of strain, we are not told.
I found this a fascinating selection. The Te Deum is, I suppose, fairly familiar, the remaining pieces may be familiar to some. If you have good enough French, I recommend strongly reading the original text of the liner-note in that language. What startled me sufficiently to read it for myself was the statement in the English version regarding the motets that 'Their very structure places them all firmly in the tradition of Palestrina'. In fact all that the author says is that they tend towards the Palestrina model, which is a perfectly reasonable thing to say. He emphatically does not say 'all', he does not place anything firmly anywhere, and he does not commit himself to the belief that Palestrina wrote for the trombone. His point is simply that these motets are traditional rather than contemporary and romantic in inspiration, looking back to the unaccompanied polyphonic style of the 16th and 15th centuries via the ecclesiastical style of a later generation in which the voices were accompanied by trombones and by the organ. Bruckner's motets have little or nothing in common with Brahms's. In Bruckner's motets the Catholic in him gets the better of the German in him, whereas in his symphonies he is as exclusively German in manner as Brahms himself is, the Bach-inspired motets very much included.

I underestimated this music in the past. As others note, this is a Jekyll and Hyde disc.

Whereas the Te Deum and Psalm 150 are sung scratchily by the Choir of the German Opera of Berlin, the motets are despatched with éclat by the Bavarian Radio Chorus and could scarcely be bettered. Moreover, while it's always a joy to hear the Berlin Phil from the `60s, the recordings of the Te Deum and Psalm 150 were never state-of-the-art and the Original Image Bit Processing has not bettered the original release of Bruckner:Sacred Choral Works for Chorus. Nor, in terms of the Te Deum, would I say that Jochum matches Karajan in sheer chutzpah (Verdi/Bruckner: Requiem/Te Deum).

To the motets, then. There's nothing more fallacious in the world than trying to equate the timings of these tracks with their actual duration. Like star-systems, the wonder consists in their purity. Their ordnance is enough to still the world on its axis. Whatever one might say about Mariolatry, it becomes semi-understandable when one hears `Total Pulchra es' and `Ave Maria' - how they taper away into eternity and pellucidly at that. Consider the majestic `Christus Factus est': much like the central pane of a rose window, it's a convergence point where a deeper reality lies in wait. `Os justi meditabitur sapientiam' has the gravitational pull of a Black Hole.

Above all, this music of the spheres, celestial of being, will fan that spark inside you to a flame. What it means is anyone's guess.

I should sooner this disk didn't include the "tedium"...But the motets are a delight, although the recording does show its age somewhat.
