Heinichen: Missa Nr. 12; Bach: Magnificat (Rademann) composed by Johann Sebastian Bach / Johann David Heinichen. CD series "Music from Dresden". German title: German title: Magnificat /Rademann. Magnificats, Masses, Latin. CD. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.8315200).
Heinichen's last Mass, composed in the style of the high baroque as a "number mass," is imposing as a result of its architectonic force and its inexhaustible originality. The basis for the brilliant, festive character of Bach's Magnificat is the scoring for trompets, timpani and a choir which here is expanded to five voices.
