Description

Josef Rheinberger is better known in the choral world for his a cappella motets, however, this beautiful piece titled Lockung, with piano accompaniment (performed by Kristine Anderson), is a rare gem in his output. It begins both strophes with a question: can't you hear the songs of the natural world all around us? Do you remember them as they call to you to dream? This piece, sung in German, invites us to revel in romantic fancies alongside the beauty of the natural world. Happy Summer!
