Bruckner is known mostly for his vast sprawling symphonies but he was also a prolific writer of church music. He subscribed to the idea of restoring Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony to Austrian choral music. Phillip Littlemore has produced a really beautiful transcription of this modal masterpiece.



Bruckner’s four-part setting of Os Justi was completed in 1879, the same year that he began work on his sixth symphony. He created an extraordinary motet in the Lydian mode (F to F on the white notes), which achieves striking harmonic effects without using a sharp or a flat. It concludes with a plainchant Alleluia.
