    This literally brought tears to my eyes. For years I so much wanted this to be performed...

    I think that now we have no known 'top tier' Zelenka work without a first-class recording!

    Wow that was great, many gems throughout.

    The opening Kyrie takes multiple listens to appreciate its interwoven and variating texture and is very positive & uplifting.
    The Credo highlight was the 4 basses sing the Crucifixus, but other great stuff in there too.
    The Benedictus Bass solo is magnificent.
    I was personally most ecstatic to hear the Gregorian-chant-inspired Agnus Dei which I've been wishing to see an ensemble tackle. They all must have had a LOT of stamina to pull that one off.

    I think we can name a few:
    I haven't personally heard any recordings of Zelenka's 'other' Miserere, ZWV 56, though I know it's come up in some performances over the years.
    Also, Missa Eucharistica ZWV 15 would be well worth listening to, even though it's a bit truncated.
    Then there are a few special ones I'd much love to hear like his 'a capella' Litaniae Lauretanae ZWV 150 for the pilgrimage to the Marian shrine at Graupen (Krupka) in 1725. This is a simple work which any ensemble should be able to pull off with ease (I would love my own choirmaster to give it a go)
    Also the other half of the Sub Tuum Praesidium ZWV 157 would be great to hear.
    Then there's the series of late 1720s Masses, glorious belters that could do with fresher recordings, especially Missa Circumcisionis ZWV 11 & Missa Gratias Agimus Tibi ZWV 13.

    Edit: See this thread where I ask what would be on your Zelenka recording request list
