Fastish, It is beyond Reproach

Locus Iste

Gurt Winter Concert, Bristol Beacon, 2012.

Austrian composer Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) wrote around 40 sacred motets, of which Locus Iste has proved to be one of the most popular. Very few choirs perform at the allegro moderato tempo indicated by Bruckner’s score (we do). Most are taken at a funereal pace.
