Although the organ works of Sigfrid Karg-Elert are enjoying ever greater popularity, his choral pieces are still waiting to be discovered. This, however, is now only a matter of time. During his middle creative period, Karg-Elert developed his own, unmistakable choral style. His few choral works, which stem from the years 1912 and 1913, unquestionably belong to his major works from this period.
In the "Benedictus", the violin, organ and harp (ad libitum) join the chorus to create a specific soundscape which Karg-Elert shapes with great imaginativeness.
