Catalogue Number: 01J019
Reference: 605 1477-2
Description: The large-scale, 34-minute St. Michael mass uses three trombones with its strings and five vocal parts while the unusual Contrapuncto is quite modest in its four parts and basso continuo only. The suite is one of eight published in 1695, mostly in the style of Lully, of which cpo released seven (unfortunately, this one is not the missing one from that recording) just two months ago (10J019). Chamber Choir of Marion-Kantorei Lemgo, Handel's Company; Rainer Johannes Homburg.
