Jan Dismas Zelenka: Missa votiva

Joanne Lunn, Soprano
Daniel Taylor, Alto
Johannes Kaleschke, Tenore
Thomas E. Bauer, Basso
Kammerchor Stuttgart
Barockorchester Stuttgart/ Frieder Bernius

Carus 83.223 [70 mins; www.codadistribution.co.uk]

A very enjoyable newly released recording (2008) of an example of the "cheerful" masses also composed by Haydn.

Great vitality and considerable originality in this example (1739) by one of the most endearing of "minor" baroque composers.

Fine singing and playing with international soloists; Joanne Lunn, English, and Tayor an exceptional Canadian counter-tenor.

Recommended warmly.
