Description: Music for Advent and Christmas from a violinist active in several Prague orchestras (including Count Morzin's) whose output of 93 sacred pieces is preserved in St. Vitus Cathedral. In spite of his early death date, you'll find Sehling eagerly casting off baroque musical garments and working in early Classical styles in these operatically-tinged, Italian-influenced, yet simple and modest pieces. Latin, German-English texts. Hana Blaziková (soprano), Markéta Cukrová, Marta Fadljevicová (altos), Václav Cizek (tenor), Tomás Král (baritone), Jaroslave Nosek (bass), Collegium Marianum; Jana Semerádová.
