Psalm 150

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The setting of Psalm 150 was Bruckner’s last sacred choral work, written in 1892 four years before the composer’s death. It shares not only the key (C major) but also the mood of exaltation of the 1884 Te Deum, and is scored for soprano solo, mixed chorus and orchestra, though the soloist’s contribution runs to no more than eleven bars. Like the F minor Mass and the Te Deum it embodies material based on plainsong, audacious chromaticism, and striding octaves, and it ends with an elaborate fugue and a ringing ‘Hallelujah!’.
