Many thanks for the info - it's great to hear of all this Zelenka activity in Russia. I am very curious to know how these concerts went. If the YouTube samples are anything to go by the orchestra seems to be good.

Was it recorded? And if so, is there any chance of a shared recording?

This clip is, of course, from ZWV 57 (Miserere), but great!

Wow, this is a magnificient piece of music! At the beginning of Gratias agimus tibi I thought that it was wrong, but then I checked the score. This is a first-class harmonic adventure, to which Zelenka has invited us. :D

I find the Gratias agimus tibi rather terrifying than glorifying. Although the text does not appear in the Requiem, it would fit in there. It has not just a bit of a Dies irae to my mind. Does anybody know anything about the circumstances Zelenka wrote this music?

Another thing came to my mind when I then checked the ZWV. I found that the Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei ZWV 26, the Gloria ZWV 30 and the Credo a due chori ZWV 32 share voices and orchestration. What do you think: Would it be possible to zip them together to a whole mass?
