A Christmas Mass by Catholic Composer, Jan Dismas Zelenka

This “Missa Nativitatis Domini” (ZWV 8) by Jan Dismas Zelenka is a lovely baroque Mass setting composed by the Bohemian master we’ve mentioned elsewhere on this site. The video embedded below is of a performance by Musica Florea, conducted by Marek Štryncl.

A blessed Christmas to all our readers!
