Catalogue Number: 11L039
Label: Musiques Suisses
Reference: MGB CD 6248
Description: Fitting right in with the above is this 55-minute collection of sacred music by this lamentably short-lived Swiss composer, the Miserere of 1830 being rather unique in its form and genre. Fröhlich uses all the musical possibilities - soprano arias, six-part through twelve-part ensembles divided up by sex or not, as the case may be, with Handel and Bach his formal models but the Romantic sensibility fully present in the resulting sound. German-English texts. Mikayel Balyan (fortepiano), Basler Vokalsolisten; Sebastian Goll.
