Johannes Strobl & Cappella Murensis & Les Cornets Noirs & Kaiser Leopold I. & __ : Leopold I.: Paradisi Gloria
Leopold I was not only a ruler, but also a well-regarded composer during his day. His presence helped bring the Viennese court into the catalyst of European culture. The pieces chosen for this release serve as a testament to his musical talent. The works are enchanting settings that Leopold composed after the death of his first two wives, along with his music for the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Directed by James Strobl, the Capella Murensis and Les Cornets Noirs have been critically praised for their previous recordings of Renaissance and Early Baroque music.
