  • FANFARA [Bartholomäo Riedl (ca. 1650-1688)]
    Motet: PLAUDITE TYMPANA, à 53 (1682)
    BATTALIA, à 10 (1673)
    Sonata, Die liederliche Gesellschaft von allerley Humor: Allegro, Presto, Der Mars, Presto,
    Aria, Die Schlacht, Lamento der Verwundten Musquetirer: Adagio
    Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei

    The 'Missa Salisburgensis à 53 voci' (in comparison, 'Spem in alium' was written by Thomas Tallis for «only» 40 voices) is perhaps the largest-scale piece of extant sacred Baroque music, an archetypical work of the Colossal Baroque. It is a polychoral composition which takes advantage of the multiple organs and various
    locations available for groups of singers and musicians to perform in Salzburg Cathedral, probably for the 1682 celebrations marking the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the Archbishopric of Salzburg.
    This stunning recording features Jordi Savall’s ensembles at their best and fully reveals the «splendour» of
    this masterpiece. A recording of cosmic proportions that Jordi Savall has decided to illustrate with a celestial image of the Helix Nebula. Nothing less.

    Recorded in Cardona (Catalunya) January 14-16, 2015
    except for La Battalia à 10, recorded on February 11th, 2002
