Notes & Reviews:

Throughout the 18th century, Prague was a significant European centre. When it comes to music, it fused in a singular manner influences primarily from Dresden, Vienna and Italy with the famous Czech musicality and folk culture. In a superlative and historically knowledgeable interpretation, the newly originating cycle "Music from Eighteen-Century Prague" will map the-yet-to-be-appreciated wealth which is still being discovered in Prague, Czech and foreign archives and which directly reflects the variegated picture of the musical life of the capital. The recording is noteworthy for its vivacity and stylistic purity - attributes characteristic of Capella Regia Praha. The world premiere of V. G. Jacob's Baroque mass opens the new edition series Music from Eighteen-Century Prague.

"The performances are very good. The vocal soloists apparently sing from the choral ranks, somewhat recessed in placement, but the chorus sings with good balance and vigor. The period instrument ensemble is pungent, with some really fruity sounds from the natural horns. Slightly cavernous sonics, but quite satisfactory. Fine notes, and full texts with translations."- ARG
