Catalogue Number: 02K038
Reference: HCD 32596
Description: Written for Holy Week of 1778 in Salzburg, these are purely sacred pieces, not written for performance before an audience. Hushed, intimate, homophonic and isorhythmic, they are fully in the conservative sacred tradition of Victoria, Ingegneri and, more recently, Jommelli and Zelenka. Purcell Choir, Bálint Maróth (cello), György Janzsó (double bass), Levente Gyöngyösi (organ).
