With The Tyberg Project, the South Dakota Chorale breathes new life into two lost Masses for choir and organ by Marcel Tyberg, a composer tragically killed at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Since his life was ended so prematurely, these Masses represent the entirety of his sacred choral output, and SDC presents them for the first time since the composer himself played them for his friends on the last night he was seen. In anticipation of his capture and possible deportation, Tyberg entrusted all of his compositions and personal writings to his friend, Dr. Milan Mihich, whose son Enrico brought the collection to Buffalo, NY where it had remained largely unnoticed until recently. In 2008, the Buffalo Philharmonic gave the highly-acclaimed world premiere of Tyberg’s Third Symphony more than 60 years after it’s composition. if you'd like to contribute to our ongoing efforts of The Tyberg Project, please visit our Contributions page.

The Album

As part of the ongoing mission of The Tyberg Project to bring this previously silenced music to life, our "Tyberg: Masses" album has been released internationally on the acclaimed Pentatone label. Recorded by frequent Grammy-winning Blanton Alspaugh and John Newton of Soundmirror, the album features the magnificent Lied Organ at First Plymouth Church, Schoenstein's "magnum opus", considered to be one of the largest and most versatile symphonic organs in the country.

The album is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes.
