Description: Although most of us think of the massive Missa Salisburgensis when we think of Biber's sacred music, most of what he wrote for liturgical performance was quite intimate, as here in this Vespers setting, which is completed by an antiphon, a hymn and a Marian motet by other contemporary composers. This 2004 live recording captures the scale of an actual 17th century Vespers and is released on disc for the first time. Melissa Hughes (soprano), Ian L. Howell (countertenor), Derek Chester (tenor), Douglas Williams (bass-baritone), Yale Schola Cantorum, Yale Collegium Players; Simon Carrington.
