"If u are, like me, a fan of operatic chorus, in this case, German opera, this cd is the right one for you. The vocal talents and ensembles are well-performed and the orchestration is deemed excellent. Here are excerpts from some of the world's most renowned operas in the repoirtaire of German romanticism. Chorus from Wagner operas(Lohengrin,The Flying Dutchman, Tannhauser and the Maistersanger), operas by Mozart (Abduction from the Seraglio and The Magic Flute), Carl Maria Von Weber (Die Freischutz) as well as Beethoven's only opera Fidelio. The choruses are magnificent and entertaining. I love the rollicking Chorus of the Janissaries in Mozart's Abduction, the Huntsmen's Chorus from Freischutz as well as Wagner's Flying Dutchman Sailors and Spinning Chorus and the beautiful Tannhauser Pilgrim's Chorus. This is a must have for German opera fans. In addition, the cd contains the libretto and translation for the German words being sung. The label of Naxos, of which this is from, is a remarkable and quality cd label. Enjoy this cd!! I know i did."
