About this Recording

RYBA: Czech Christmas Mass / Missa Pastoralis

Jakub Jan Ryba was a teacher, composer and one of the foremost Czech cantors of the 18th century. His Czech Christmas Mass is an inherent part of the musical tradition of his country. The work, which has all the hallmarks of a cantata rather than a mass, takes its plot from the nativity play common in European folklore. The world première recording of the Missa Pastoralis provides a fitting accompaniment.
