St. Florian's Monastery. - The entrance of the Augustinian canon's monastery in Upper Austria, where the young Bruckner was accepted as a choirboy in 1837 and where he spent his days from 1845 to 1855, first as an assistant teacher, then as monastery organist, writing his first important compositions. The famous Bruckner organ is located in the collegiate church, and Bruckner is also buried here. The musical quotation is from Mass No. 3 in F minor (WAB 28), which the composer revised four times and which became one of the most popular choral works of the Romantic period after his death.
