Salve Regina ZWV 204

  • Lovely recording (modern day premiere?) of this jewel, which Zelenka later reworked into the Salve Regina (ZWV 135). ZWV 204 is still listed as “Doubtful” in the Zelenka work list but as Jan Stockigt states in her database this needs to be reconsidered:


    Listen here:

    Werke von J. de Modena, A. Crotti, A. Jarzębski, A. Grandi, G.F. Händel, A. Vivaldi, J.D. Zelenka
    Johanna Winkel, Sopran
    Ensemble Bassonore - Tabea Höfer, Violine
    Claudius Kamp, Blockflöte, Dulzian
    Adrian Rovatkay, Dulzian, künstlerische Leitung
    Arno Schneider, Orgel
    Dorfkirche, Herzfelde, 15.08.2020

    The Salve Regina starts when 22 mins are remaining of the concert.

  • Zelenka was then also seen by Phoebus,

    who rightly praised him as follows:

    You most highly praised, perfect VIRTUOS,

    Your self-gained fame is world-renowned and great;

    You can for the Glory of God, delight the Soul,

    and movingly compose Church music,

    which is so touching, that the devotional Breast

    already experiences the Foretaste of Pleasures of Heavens;

    Therefore Your Praise will blossom according to your Name,

    Both here on Earth and on the stage of the Stars.

    - Johann Gottlob Kittel
