Program Notes

Tannhäuser is an 1845 opera in three acts, music and text by Richard Wagner, based on two German legends; Tannhäuser, the legendary medieval German Minnesänger and poet, and the tale of the Wartburg Song Contest. The story centers on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and redemption through love, a theme running through much of Wagner's mature work.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


The Pilgrim's Chorus represents the penitential journey of pilgrims as they travel to and from Rome to receive absolution. The noble aspirations of the penitents are embodied in this song, which sings the praises of God's mercy and the peace obtained by those who remit the debt of their sins.

- Program Note from Tradition in Action


This is the first time the Pilgrim’s Chorus has been set apart from its use in the overture and is skillfully arranged by Alfred Reed. It’s Wagner at his best and of course, Alfred Reed too.
