My ensembles Rabaskadol and Barocco Locco have recorded a number of CDs, all of which contain music never before published. I always try to make this material accessible for other musicians and you will find an indication if an edition of our transcriptions is available.

In principio - Music of the Graz court chapel 1585

test CD-Cover

Label: Aliud, release date: 2005

In the Episcopal library of Regensburg we find, under the signature A.R. 775-777 a manuscript containing repertoire of the wind band of the Graz court chapel from about 1585. The importance of this manuscript lies in the fact, that we have specific indications as to which instruments should be used: Namely- cornetti, shawms and sackbuts. On this recording you will find anonymous instrumental pieces, probably written by the players themselves together with vocal works by Orlando di Lasso, Andrea Gabrieli, Giaches de Weert et al. Produced in conjunction with Rostocker Motettenchor/Markus Langer.

Das Hohelied Salomonis

test CD-Cover

Label: Cantabile, release date: 2005

Chapters 1& 2 of the Song of Songs set to music by the Aachen based composer Reichardus Mangon in 1609.

Mangon uses the oriental love lyrics of the Song of Songs to create a composition exemplary of the style of the time in terms of declamation of text "dem teutschen Text gemeß/ componirt unnd auff alle Musicalische Instrumente zugericht…" for singers and instruments. This work was a fitting wedding gift for his employer, Duke Friedrich of Württemberg.
