Missa Omnium Sanctorum

Missa Omnium Sanctorum


G. F. Händel
Dixit Dominus HWV 232

J. D. Zelenka
Missa Omnium Sanctorum ZWV 21


Collegium 1704 & Collegium Vocale 1704
Václav Luks conductor

Zelenka‘s last mass composition, Missa Omnium Sanctorum, is an example of emotionally charged style of extreme virtuosity, which is based main­ly on the Italian Catholic tradition but sprinkled with Zelenka‘s originality and astonishing inven­tion. Handel‘s music for the psalm Dixit Dominus also pushes the limit of interpretation possibi­lities: the listener is truly overwhelmed by the endless fireworks of ideas and the employment of various compositional techniques.
