Description: All of these motets and arias require the use of a pantaleon, a type of hammered dulcimer popular in the Viennese area during the first half of the 18th century and the two instrumental pieces are transcriptions of what were likely violin parts of longer orchestral works. Anyone who likes the silvery sound of the dulcimer will enjoy these late Baroque works. Italian/Latin-English texts. Monika Mauch (soprano), Stanislava Jirku (alto), Margit Übellacker (dulcimer), La Gioia Armonica; Jürgen Banholzer.
