GEORG MUFFAT (1653-1704): Missa in labore requies.
Catalogue Number: 09Q015
Label: Pan Classics
Reference: PC 10301
Description: This is a spectacular polychoral piece with brass section far outnumbering strings in the style of similar grand masses by Biber, Weichlein and Hochreither. It's Muffat's only surviving sacred work and Letzbor has chosen a cathedral in Gurk which closely resembles, acoustically, the building where it was premiered in Salzburg. St. Florianer Sängerknaben, Ars Antiqua Austria; Gunar Letzbor
