Finale from Symphony No. 8

This great choral symphony is divided into two unequal parts, the first a setting of the ninth-century Whitsuntide hymn Veni Creator Spiritus, the second of the closing scene of Part II of Goethe's Faust.

Mahler completed the symphony in the space of just six weeks whilst on holiday in the summer of 1906, and the first performances were given on 12th & 13th September 1910 in Munich.  It was described in publicity as the "Symphony of a Thousand" - a fair reflection on the number of musicians required to perform it!  Mahler, who conducted, had only eight months to live.  It was his last professional public appearance in Europe.

This arrangement is of the final chorus, Alles Vergängliche, music that comprises roughly the last five minutes of the Symphony.  It begins with the Mystic Chorus, drawing mankind towards heaven.  This builds in intensity to a triumphant instrumental coda, an affirmation of faith in both God and man.
