Our new Ensemble Diderot Collection

MEANWHILE Brian is very busy, transcribing and translating a volume of records from Anhalt-Zerbst, where Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758) was Kapellmeister for 36 years. In time, all of the surviving music he wrote for a cycle of cantatas from that year will be published, along with other pieces required by the liturgy there – masses, a Te Deum, and hymns by composers from Zerbst.
