Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his day, Georg Philipp Telemann was the most famous German composer to compose in all styles and who produced a fantastic number of opuses. Originally forgotten by posterity, then to be written off as a writing maniac, the significance of his works has finally begun to be recognised in recent years. As a protestant, he composed his sacral pieces (e.g. his 1750 cantatas!) in the german language. There are however also a few works in Latin: a magnificat as well as two psalms rendered to music, both of which must have been written for special occasions. On the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death, Elena Santori and her Allabastrina Choir & Ensemble present an outstanding recording of this magnificent music.
