Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber died three centuries ago, in 1704. He was born in a town in Bohemia in 1644, and like Mozart much later, he became closely associated with musical life in Salzburg through appointments for that city's archbishop. His Requiem in F minor is one of the Baroque Treasures unearthed by the Waltham Singers, with King Edward VI School standing in for Salzburg Cathedral, and the Singers supported by the renowned Meridian Sinfonia.
Vivaldi, too, and a Mass by the lesser known Zelanka, an
Czech composer at the court of Dresden.
