Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s Missa Salisburgensis à 53 Voci in C-Dur Performed by Collegium 1704, Directed by Václav Luks

The blurb:

The Missa Salisburgensis à 53 voci is the largest-scale piece of extant sacred Baroque music, an archetypal work of the Colossal Baroque.

The Missa Salisburgensis is a polychoral composition which takes advantage of the multiple organs and various locations available for groups of singers and musicians to perform in Salzburg Cathedral, probably for the 1682 celebrations marking the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the Archbishopric of Salzburg
