The works of this record constitute a complete Mass likely heard shortly after the singing of the peace of Westphalia in 1648, celebrating the end of the 30 Years War. The range encompasses the music of the three Kapellmeisters , one Lutheran composer and an Italian virtuoso musician...imports of the influential Italians and their modern practices were then leading the way from polyphonic writing to the early baroque. The eight-part works in this collection are probably to be performed antiphonally, with sparkling brass instrumental doubling, in the festive style cultivated by the Gabrielis in Venice.
