The name of Zelenka crops up all too occasionally when musicians who have discovered the subtleties of his music perform and promote it. This disc of key sacred works is welcome and the outstanding quality of Zelenka’s music apparent from the outset is matched by the period instruments of L’arpa festante and soloists under Nicolo Sokoli. Zelenka was contemporary with J.S. Bach and known to the composer. He travelled and studied widely and his accomplished and original style compares favourably with that of the Master. These three substantial works will make a superb addition to baroque and classical sacred repertoire.
