The concert (and the disc) opens with a rare performance of the Symphonic Prelude which is attributed to either one of Bruckner's students or, in part, by Bruckner himself. This is the world premiere recording of the Symphonic Prelude in its original orchestration. The recording by Neeme Jaervi on Chandos is a contemporary orchestration of the earlier discovered piano arrangement.Michelle Perrin Blair conducts the Moores School Orchestra.
This performance of the Mass No. 3 includes Bruckner's Ave Maria as an Offertorium.
The recording concludes with an Organ Improvisation on Themes of Bruckner as performed by organist Sigurd Øgaard.
