Jan Dismas Zelenka - Requiem in D Minor/Miserere in C Minor (1994)

Zelenka is one of my favourite baroque composers. He was born near Prague in 1679 and died in Dresden, 1745.
This record contains two indispensable pieces of his work - Requiem in D minor, ZWV 48 and Miserere in C Minor, Psalm 50, ZWV 57 - and it was released by the czech label Supraphon.
One of the soloists is the very acclaimed contralto Magdalena Kozena.
Don't miss it!
