Credo was the theme of the choir week 2013. The program is like a mirror of our Faith, with works representing various important points of Catholicism in a chronological and symbolic order. The recordings in this album were made at the summer choir week of 2013 in Vorarlberg, Austria, and in fall of 2013 in Konstanz, Germany, by the main choir and the chamber choir. The pieces range from Gregorian Chant to romantic, and with composers from Grieg to Gretchaninov, this album reflects all sorts of different styles and flavors. You will most likely have a hard time deciding which of these works is your favorite!
