Though he was, until the arrival of Rossini, the leading operatic composer of the time, Johann Simon Mayr also wrote a signi cant body of church music. Marked by clear formal structures and skilful instrumentation, the works on this recording were composed between 1800 and 1830, the majority when Mayr was maestro di cappella in Bergamo. There are several settings of Marian antiphons Latin hymns to the Virgin Mary as well as settings of sacred poetry. Elements of the writing point to his operatic experience, with rich and varied use of accompanying winds, songlike themes, and a wide vocal range.
