James K. Bass, guest conductor
Franz Biebl wrote his iconic “Ave Maria” for an all-male Bavarian Firemen’s Chorus in the summer of 1959. From those humble beginnings, the piece made its way through the glee clubs of U.S. universities before being performed and recorded by the pre-eminent all-male vocal ensemble, Chanticleer. Seraphic Fire now performs the Biebl and explores the tradition of music for men’s choirs that inspired this singular work.
