Bruckner: Locus iste, WAB 23
by The Sixteen
A sacred motet composed in 1869, the text is the Latin gradual 'Locus iste' for the annual celebration of a church's dedication, and the incipit ("Locus iste a Deo factus est") translates to "This place was made by God".

Bruckner originally set it for four unaccompanied voices, and initially intended it for the dedication of the Votivkapelle at the New Cathedral in Linz, Austria, where he had once been a cathedral organist. It was the first motet composed by Bruckner in Vienna, and was published in 1886 alongside three other gradual motets.

As a composition with no obvious technical difficulty, it has been performed by many church choirs and by a great number of professionals (most often to celebrate church dedications).
Conductor: Harry Christophers.
