Description: Fischer published 16 psalm settings in 1701 (more than would be needed for a single Vespers service) which are modeled on the Italian vocal styles then prevalent. Seven were chosen for this recording and supplied with alternatim instrumental music by Fischer himself and by Pez, whose six-movement, 14-minute sonata is itself a striking addition to the repertoire. Exsultemus, Newton Baroque; Andrus Madsen (organ).
