Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
This presents all of the magnificent music by Jan Dismas Zelenka for the prolonged funeral exequies of Augustus the Strong...Collegium 1704's players and choir perform with lyricism and precision...Luks presents a reconstructed edition of the entire work including all nine lessons and also all of the responses (including some Gregorian chant), featuring idiosyncratic switches between archaic and modern styles.

International Record Review
The drama is magnificently handled by Václav Luks...[Blaíková's] singing is a huge asset here, weith its pin-point accuracy and effortless, long-breathed phrasing - ah, her ringing naturalness is such a pleasure. Zelenka's overall sense of colour and sheer stylistic variety are frankly breathtaking.
