    Collegium 1704 will start this season in the exceptional space of St. Vitus Cathedral with magnificent Missa Salisburgensis by H. I. F. Biber in a Czech premiere.

    Our conductor Václav Luks will open the event with a small introduction and then you will have a chance to see, or hear more likely, the orchestra and choir of 80 members rehearsing along with the French children choir Les Pages du Centre de musique baroque de Versailles.

    The beginning time is fixed, but it is possible to leave within regular breaks.

    Missa Salisburgensis

    Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber composed his magnificent Missa Salisburgensis in 1682 on the occasion of the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the Salzburg Diocese. To this day it is astounding for its sonic grandeur and diverseness and it is regarded as calling for the largest forces of any the Baroque composition. Jean-Baptiste Lully's Te Deum is a supreme example of the French “Grand Motet” genre from the era of Louis XIV, the Sun King. Both compositions represent two contrasting worlds of Baroque music. What these works have in common, however, is the sublime beauty of their unusually lavish instrumentation and the perfect compositional mastery of their creators.

    Missa Sanctissimae Trinitatis

    A confrontation between the music of J. S. Bach and J. D. Zelenka always offers an interesting comparison. Zelenka’s Missa Sanctissimae Trinitatis (1736) dates from the beginning of his peak creative period, and it anticipates all of the important features of his later masses. Bach’s Mass in A Major, one of the four so-called Lutheran Masses, dates from approximately the same time as Zelenka’s mass. In contrast with Zelenka’s showy work, however, Bach’s composition stands out for its extraordinary intimacy and simplicity of expression.

    Christmas Oratorio

    The set of six cantatas by J. S. Bach intended for worship services between Christmas Day and Epiphany is known collectively as the Christmas Oratorio, and it is one of the composer’s most famous works. It is only seldom possible, however, to hear all six cantatas on a single concert and to enjoy the lovely music of this cycle in all of its beauty. The performance of Bach's oratorio will be a special occasion as it is the first collaboration of the Dutch conductor Peter Dijkstra and his Nederlands Kamerkoor with Collegium 1704.
