Jan Dismas Zelenka - Magnificat

Kuhn Mixed Chorus
Prague Chamber Orchestra
Lubomir Matl, conductor
Pavel Kuhn, chorus master
Jana Jonasova, soprano
Marie Mrazova, contralto

Zelenka's Magnificat was another of those I'd never heard before the survey of scores of settings I surveyed a couple of years ago.  It was one that J.S. Bach admired to the extent he had one of his sons make a copy of it for use in his church.    There are a number of performances on Youtube.  I chose this one more or less at random.
