Highly acclaimed Collegium 1704 deliver Magnificat by J. S. Bach and Missa Omnium Sanctorum, great opus by J. D. Zelenka

Bach’s setting of the Marian hymn Magnificat is one of few works by the Lepizig cantor that are based on Latin texts and thus blur the boundaries between Lutheran and Catholic liturgical music. Zelenka composed most of his works for the Catholic court church in Dresden and his last setting of the mass ordinary is one of his finest creations.

J. S. Bach: Magnificat in D BWV 243
J. D. Zelenka: Missa Omnium Sanctorum ZWV 21
