Sacred Music by Jan Dismas Zelenka. Fili Dei, te rogamus. The King's Consort, Robert King. 11. Agnus Dei. Jan Dismas Zelenka. 12. Regina caeli laetare, Z 134.
As his instrumental music has demonstrated, Jan Dismas Zelenka was one of the most original contemporaries of Bach, daring in his harmony and counterpoint. He was much admired by Bach himself, but was kept in a subservient role all his life Though these works designed for practical use in church are rather less radical than much of Zelenka's instrumental music (already recognised on disc), the writing for voices is consistently fresh and lively.
Combine this with a tendency to throw out the rulebook when it came to harmonic convention and it’s hardly surprising that he was underappreciated in his lifetime. Yet here is some of the most pungently exciting writing of the Baroque, as individual as that of his near-contemporary, Johann Sebastian Bach. Welcome to Hyperion Records, an independent British classical label devoted to presenting high-quality recordings of music of all styles and from all periods from the twelfth century to the twenty-first.

Agnus Dei - King's Consort Choir/The King's Consort. Regina Caeli Laetare, Z134 - Various Performers. Jan Dismas Zelenka(1679-1745) was the most important Bohemian composer before Gluck. He wrote no operas and few instrumental works, but a great body of sacred music for the Catholic court at Dresden plus a few choice secular works. Only recently have his works come to light, but they show that he was an important and uniquely gifted composer, with a superb ear for melody, exceptional contrapuntal skills, and a sparing but effective penchant for surprising harmonious twists and unusual turns of phrase
Jan Dismas Zelenka (16 October 1679 – 23 December 1745), baptised Jan Lukáš Zelenka and also known as Johann Dismas Zelenka or Johannes Lucas Ignatius Dismas Zelenka, was a Czech composer and musician of the Baroque period. His music is admired for its harmonic inventiveness and counterpoint. Zelenka was raised in Central Bohemia, educated in Prague and Vienna, and spent his professional life in Dresden.
