Hey guys,

I know it's not Zelenka, but it's Dresden-related :-) The choir I sing in will be performing a mass consisting of pieces from the SingAkademie zu Berlin archive: a Kyrie by G.A. Benda and a Gloria by J.G. Naumann. (Right now I don't have any more information about the origin of the pieces). The Gloria is clearly Dresden-style, with a demanding Cum Sancto Spirito fugue :-)

Date and venue:

November 13th, after the 19:00 mass in the German language
St. Barbara's Church
Mały Rynek 8
Kraków, Poland


J.S. Bach: the BWV 180 cantata "Schmuecke dich, o liebe Seele"
A. Stradella: Crocifissione e morte di N.S.Gesł Cristo
G.A. Benda: Kyrie
J.G. Naumann: Gloria

Jola Kowalska (soprano)
Agnieszka Monasterska (alto)

The concert was recorded. I cannot make the recording public, but if anyone wants to listen to the Benda / Naumann mass or Stradella's "Crocifissione e morte di N.S.Gesł Cristo", let me know :-)

Please let me hear that Mass Elwro! And, every admirer of the Dresden church music should have Peter Köpp's recording of two Naumann Masses (Ars Musici), to hear how the sound evolved in the second half of 18th century Dresden. This is relentless and brilliant music with often familiar patterns and, yes, crafty goosebumpy fugues.
