Exclusive pre-Xmas pre-info for all you die-hard Zelenka fans in the forum:
Today is December 3, the main feast day of the Jesuit saint Francis Xavier. In 1719 Princess Maria Josepha brought the Xaverian tradition with her from Vienna, and thereafter it was solemnly celebrated in Dresden as well. So the announcement exactly today of the news Collegium 1704 just revealed to me, that the ensemble will release the "Missa Divi Xaverii" ZWV 12 on CD in 2015, couldn't possibly have been more appropriate or better timed!
Simultaneously Luks & company will make the ZWV 12 score publicly available through a collaboration with the publisher Bärenreiter. The plan is to build a proper Zelenka edition in the next years. A crowdfunding campaign for the CD will be launched very soon that the release depends on - so hopefully everyone reading this announcement is able to contribute (a donation will reward you with a true feeling of personal ownership to the resulting product).
More details will be provided as soon as their crowdfunding campaign is launched.
...What a Xmas gift for all of us!
