Catalogue No: CARUS 83.145

The romantic composer Josef Rheinberger wrote these sacred works for female voices in the late 1800s. Rita Costanzi, harpist, joins Elektra for Hymn op. 35, Rheinberger’s setting of the psalm How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings—one of Rheinberger’s most beautiful works.

With Lorraine Reinhardt, soprano; Bryn Nixon, organ; Rita Costanzi, harp

“Elektra Women’s Choir does full justice to these technically demanding yet easily accessible pieces and does listeners a great service by bringing them to our attention in such expertly realized performances.” – Classics Today
