"...truly passionate version based on the exceptional cohesion between the choir, orchestra and soloists, unified in the same will to be in service of this galvanizing music. (...) Soloists seem to be in perfect harmony with the composition. This is, without question, the leading recording and reference not only in the field of Zelenka music."
(R9 de Classica-Répertoire, Jean-Noël Coucoureux, IX/2008)

"...It was the most excellent concert that we could hear at the Festival de Sablé in 2007. (...) interprets were prodigious..." (www.classiquenews.com, 2007, Festival de Sablé)

Zelenka composed Missa votiva (1739), a true masterpiece among his other masses, after a long silence – maybe caused by a long and serious illness that Zelenka didn’t hope to overcome. Missa votiva is regarded as a thanksgiving composition demonstrating deep belief and a riche spiritual life without missing a great passion.
The beauty and importance of J.D. Zelenka’s music is often compared to this one of G. F. Händel, G. Ph. Telemann, A. Vivaldi or J. S. Bach who admired his Czech contemporary living and working at the Court of Dresden.
