These two quartets (ChB 5303 / 5304) have been drawn from the recently rediscovered “Travel Album” which Fanny Hensel and her husband Wilhelm Hensel kept on their lengthy journey to Italy in 1839/40. The little vocal works can be performed by a chorus as well as by soloists. They are being published here for the first time.
“Fanny Hensel's choral works not only stand up to comparison with any of the rich and varied choral works of the Romantic era - they also rank among the best. Very likely to become hits!” (Musica)
