Program Notes

The beauty and sonority of Bruckner's choral works are the inspiration for this transcription for wind band. The delicate opening starts from almost nothing and builds to a brief fugue. Gorgeous chords bring the parts back to a whole, then gradually fades to a soft woodwind statement of the chorale.

- Program Note from publisher

Os Justi ("The mouth of the righteous"), WAB 30, is a sacred motet composed by Anton Bruckner in 1879. Os justi is a Gregorian chant used as gradual of the Commune Doctorum and as introit of the Commune Confessoris non Pontificis.
