J.S. Bach: Christ lag in Todesbanden BWV4
Biber: Missa Christi resurgentis

The English Concert and Choir perform music for Holy Week, opening with the Easter cantata Christ lag in Todesbanden, perhaps Bachís earliest surviving sacred vocal work. Laurence Cummings directs a performance of Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biberís rarely heard Missa Christi Resurgentis, which was most likely written in 1674 for performance on Easter Day in Salzburg Cathedral.

The Bohemian-born composer crafted a suitably lavish setting of the Latin Mass for the edification of his powerful employer, the Prince- Archbishop of Salzburg.
