Musica Antiqua Citolibensis. Czech Masters of the 18th Century

Catalogue Number: SU 3908-2
Published: 22nd June 2007
Genre: Chamber Music
Format: 4 CD
In 1968 Supraphon issued the first album of what were then unknown compositions of the Czech masters of the 18th century under the title Musica Antiqua Citolibensis. The pieces had been uncovered by musicologist Zdeněk Šesták in Citoliby, a newly-discovered rural location near Louny. The exceptional response to the album both at home and abroad prompted the release of a second broadcollection in 1984. A number of top-class singers and instrumentalists contributed to the recording, including the Kühn Children's Chorus and Prague Symphony Orchestra. Now we are offering thisnewly-remastered collection of select pieces from the Citoliby repertoire, which consisted primarily of sacred vocal works with instrumental accompaniment. The pieces are living proof of the astonishingly high level of musicianship in this Czech village during the second half of the 18th century.
