The small German label CPO has made a specialty out of unearthing buried treasures. Thanks to the gorgeous work of five soloists, period-instrument orchestra La Stagione Frankfurt and the Deutscher Kammerchor under conductor Michael Schneider, three sacred pieces by Joseph Martin Kraus glow with colour and life. A contemporary of Mozart's, Kraus (1756-1792) wrote in a similar style yet shows his own, slightly more Baroque-influenced style of invention. Kraus spent years composing for the Swedish court in Stockholm, but his ears and eyes were open to the latest musical developments in the rest of Europe. The nearly 30-minute Miserere is the finest of all, full of musical motifs that carry all the way through. Any of these pieces deserve your ears if you like Mozart and Haydn. Better yet, it would be great to hear them performed live in Toronto. -- Toronto Star, John Terauds, January 2010

I'm resurrecting here some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real project behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the tide. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
