Pekiel: Choral Music
Pękiel: Missa Concertata, La Lombardesca (22:36)
The Sixteen / Eamonn Dougan
Bartłomiej Pękiel was one of the most eminent Polish composers of choral music in the 17th century. He served at the court in Warsaw, where he was Kapellmeister from 1645-1655 – the first non-Italian to hold the post. Just 29 of his compositions survive today and on this new album by The Sixteen under the direction of Associate Conductor, Eamonn Dougan, they present 11 of his works for choir and orchestra including the Missa Concertata, La Lombardesca.
