J. D. Zelenka
Missa paschalis ZWV 7

J. S. Bach
Oster-Oratorium BWV 249



Collegium 1704 & Collegium Vocale 1704
Václav Luks conductor

Zelenka‘s Missa paschalis from 1726 is the com­poser’s only Easter mass and at the same time one of his most impressive works, dazzling with unusually rich instrumentation and virtuoso vocal parts. Bach‘s Easter cantata Kommt, eilet und laufet, usually presented under the title Eas­ter Oratorio, can easily compete with Zelenka‘s Mass in terms of ostentation, and listeners will be captivated from the very beginning, as the overture takes the form of an Italian concerto.
