Vienna Boys’ Choir


Vienna Boys’ Choir


The music on this CD is an unusual selection - most of it has never before been recorded by the Choir. There is music from the Vienna Boys’ Choir’s 510-year-tradition and music from their extraordinary project involving music from the Silk Road.

The Silk Road selection includes works culled from musicological research. To find suitable pieces, the Choir consulted scholars from the Humboldt University in Berlin, London’s Horniman Museum, the University of Oxford, the Smithsonian and the University of Vienna. Early field recordings kept in the archives of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and field recordings and translations made by Ingeborg Baldauf in the 1970s, and by Ted Levin in the 1980s and 1990s, formed the basis of the research.

The musical offerings come in Latin, Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, Marathi, Maori, Savo Finnish, Tajik, Urdu, Uyghur, Uzbek and German.

Running Time: 70 mins
