Spirit and Voice at Otto Wagner’s Opus

The Church at Steinhof, the gilded Jugendstil edifice built by Otto Wagner at the beginning of the 20th century, is a majestic setting for VOCuMENTA’s monthly music programme. The organization’s stated purpose, to present “outstanding works of western vocal sacred music”, is emphasised by its distinctive name, a neologism joining “vox” (voice) and “mens” (spirit) together.
