JOSEPH HAYDN (1732-1809): Applausus, Hob. XXIVa:6.
Catalogue Number: 05L037
Description: This early cantata, from 1768, was written for the 50th anniversary of the taking of vows by a Cistercian abbot in the Austrian monastery of Zwettl. Temperance, Prudence, Justice, Fortitude and Theology discuss the pleasures of monastic life in a work which is hardly electrifying but which, in its following of Neapolitan models (recitatives and da capo arias with rare ensemble numbers), will certainly interest Haydn completists and early Haydn specialists. 2 CDs. Latin-German texts. Anna Palimina (soprano), Marina De Liso (mezzo), Donát Havár (tenor), Andreas Wolf (bass-baritone), Johannes Weiser (bass), Capella Augustina; Andreas Spering.
