Choral and instrumental music by the
Chorgemeinschaft Neubeuern

Conducted by
Enoch zu Guttenberg
Recorded at FARAO Studios, 1998

(German, English)
· text "Chorgemeinschaft"
For music lovers and connoisseurs the name Neubeuern is inseparably connected with the now internationally celebrated choral society of that town. Both German and international press have commented on the achievements of this ensemble as "The Neubeuern phenomenon", "The Neubeuern miracle", "The authority on choral music". - One could go on quoting.

Under the direction of Enoch zu Guttenberg this group from Neubeuern are now known as, one could almost say fanatical interpreters of the works of J.S. Bach: the St. Matthew Passion, the St. John Passion, the B minor mass, as ardent Mozart admirers and as musicians very much at home with Beethoven, Stravinsky and Verdi. And the more famous the Neubeuern Choral society becomes and the more international their venues, the greater is the danger of forgetting who they actually are and where they really come from.
They are, and wish to remain singers of folk-music in the best sense of the word; a society grown out of numerous folk-music ensembles. They have never denied or broken from their origins.

In "Neubeurer Advent Singing", the diversity which is central to them becomes clear. The choir performs as one unit, but they open up to reveal in the Trio, three, four and five part singing, the whole spectrum of their talents.
But for all this, the aim of the "Neubeurer Advent Singing" is to convey more than just musical diversity. The choir presents a musical and at the same time theological programme. The story of the birth of Christ is related in both text and melody. Even the Passion,- the objective of the Holy Night, prevails. The old Bavarian carols reveal their poetry, their earthy, sometimes grim humour. But they also show the sombre gloomy side.

The Advent Singing, therefore is no mere choral excursion into a folksy idyll. It reveals the roots from which Neubeuern's approach to interpretation grew.


Ach mein Seel, fang an zu singen
Maria durch ein Dornwald ging
Lieb Nachtigall, wach auf
Jodler/Langsamer Landler
Der güldne Rosenkranz
Oh Maria, wie gefährlich
Freu Dich, o Tochter Zion
Maria ging übers Gebirge
O edle, liabreiche, erwünschteste Nacht
Halsbacher Stückl
Da draußen auf dem Berge
Es wird scho glei dumpa
Landler in Ges-Dur
Still, still
O Jubel, o Freud
Heißa Buama
Weyarner Hirtenmusik
Geh Hansei
Es hat sich halt eröffnet
Ein Kindelein ist uns geboren
Schlaf mein Kindelein

"… die vielköpfige Chorgemeinschaft Neubeuern beweist hohes technisches und künstlerisches Niveau."

"Neubeuerns Chorgemeinschaft mit ihren Solisten bietet die Königsdisziplin des Chorgesangs – das mehrstimmige a cappella – in atemberaubender Perfektion. Nichts ist ungenau oder verschwiemelt; jede Note 'steht', jede Silbe ist geformt."
Oberbayerisches Volksblatt

"… Mit ihren dreiundzwanzig Titeln präsentiert der Chor einen hohen Grad an musikalischer Vielfalt. … Insgesamt überzeugt der Chor mit seiner musikalischen Gestaltung, den gewählten Tempi und vor allem mit der sauberen Intonation…"
