MAYR, J.S.: Miserere in G Minor / Litaniae lauretanae de Beata Virgine Maria in G Minor (Simon Mayr Choir, Bavarian State Opera Chorus, Hauk)

Mayr had already earned esteem in Venice for his church music when, in 1802, he assumed the post of maestro di cappella at the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo. With a modest orchestra at his disposal he soon composed a Miserere in G minor, in which solo orchestral instruments often carry on a dialogue with the vocal soloists in a succession of powerful, descriptive and beautiful arias and choruses. The Litaniae Lauretanae, cast in three parts, features wide leaping figures and sighing melodies.
