Reviews

Dankbare Aufgaben bieten die beiden Solomotetten des in Böhmen geborenen Zelenka, der in Dresden als Kirchenmusiker und Kapellmeister wirkte und als bedeutender tschechischer Barockkomponist gilt von dem neben vielen anderen Kirchenmusikwerken an die 20 Messen erhalten sind. Die vorliegenden Motetten für das Weihnachtsfest werden hier erstmals ediert und bestehen jeweils aus Rezitativ und Arie. In beiden Fällen handelt es sich um im Parodieverfahren bearbeitete frühere Nummern aus einem Schuldrama zu Ehren des hl. Wenzel.
