The Vienna Boys’ Choir is one of the oldest boys’ choirs in the world and still a living tradition after more than 500 years. Even Haydn sang there and Schubert also commenced his musical career there. Antonio Salieri was a member of the admissions jury. What is captivating about these recordings is, on the one hand, the clarity of the textual and musical declamation and, on the other, a very special authentic charm deriving from the slight Viennese accent. In the performance by the Vienna Boys’ Choir, it is a question not just of perfect pronunciation and intonation, but also of a sensual musical element that is frequently overlooked in Mozart and Haydn, but that is absolutely vital.
