The performance of the oratorio "Mary Ward" for mixed choir, children's choir, and orchestra at Sunday 9.10.2022 in the Basilika of Altötting has been recorded by the Mary Ward schools of Altötting. The double CD including a booklet (artwork by Andrea Wibmer) is available from there.
The oratorio was commissioned by the Mary Ward schools for their 300th anniversary of foundation. The twelve movements are guided by Mary Ward's life and mostly use recorded sayings of her.
