Sounds Choral: The Choral Music of Josef Rheinberger

This week's Sounds Choral host James Jordan welcomes Charles Bruffy, the Grammy Award-winning conductor of the Chorus Director of the Kansas City Chorale, as his guest to present some of the choral works of Josef Rheinberger.

He was described as a “visionary” by The Choral Journal, which cited his book Evoking Sound as a “must read.” His more than 45 books explore both the philosophical and spiritual basis of musicianship, as well as aspects of choral rehearsal teaching and learning and are considered to be essential books in the conducting profession. His book Evoking Sound has been praised by the Choral Journal as a “must read.” At Westminster Choir College he is professor and senior conductor, and he conducts Westminster Schola Cantorum and the critically acclaimed Westminster Williamson Voices. He is also director of the Westminster Conducting Institute and co-director of the Choral Institute at Oxford.
