Description of Style

The compositional works of Gottfried Veit can stylistically hardly be put in a drawer. Although his music is always tonal, the style of his compositions goes very often hand in hand with the instrumentation, but also goes along with the occasion of the presentation. Many of his compositions are deliberately traditional ("Schloss Tirol", "Reich der Dolomiten", "Der Schlern"), while others with their newer music language are oriented into the future ("Das Weltgericht", "Passionsmusik", "Das Orakel"). A contemporary musical language is also found in his ensemble music ("Furioso", "Aubade", "Capriccio"). Especially his vocal church music ("St. Franziskus-Messe", "St. Josefs-Messe") is of unique musical character.
