Music from the Kromeriz Archive in Moravia, including some of the most popular, original and striking of all 5-part music by Heinrich Schmelzer, Biber, and Biber’s colleague Pavel Vejvanovský. In his capacity as librarian and copyist, Vejvanovský, is largely to thank for assembling this vast corpus of music. His connections with the court of the Holy Roman Emperor in Vienna ensured both the performance of Czech music in the capital and the preservation of these works.
