View Full Version : Harmonia Mundi recording of ZWV108

27-12-2007, 11:55 AM
I wonder if anyone has the following recording on CD:

ZWV 108 Deutsche Harmonia Mundi. Cat. No. GD 77177. CD issued: 1990?. Orchestra: Basler Madrigalisten Orchester der Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Fritz Naf. Soloists: Rosemarie Hoffmann (S), René Jacobs (A).

I have no cover image of this CD in the database, and I don't know what else is on the CD. I don't know what year was the Magnificat was recorded, or when the CD was actually released. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance. /Alistair

I don't have the disc, but it appears this was originally released by DHM in 1990 under the title Baroque Christmas Music - Natus est Jesus
(see: http://www.ciao.se/Baroque_Christmas_Music__359597 ),
then rereleased by RCA in 1995 as Baroque Yuletide.

It also appears that ZWV 108 is the only Zelenka work on these discs. It has really become one of his best recorded vocal works.

Many thanks, Derek. This is a big help.

I have the disc. Do you still need details or a scan of the cover? I note your original post was in 2007 (I joined the Zelenka Forum only relatively recently).

Hi. Yes, I need all possible details, and also scan(s). Nobody else has replied in the affirmative, so I would be very grateful!

Best wishes. /Alistair

Just to be clear, there is no ZWV number on the disc, but the Magnificat is dated 1725.
