The Missa Salisburgensis is a highlight in the world of polyphonic music, and will be performed on 4th July by the RIAS Kammerchor, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin (Akamus) and Justin Doyle. It seems perfect for the Berliner Dom which resembles the Salzburg Cathedral, for which the piece was built, with its numerous galleries. With 53 vocal parts in 6 choirs and with full orchestra with 8 blazing trumpets this piece from 1682 is amazing.

“This work is not performed live often because it is very complex”, says Justin. “But I think it will be one of the most exciting and spectacular evenings.”

With choirs and orchestra placed around the building the audience will be completely surrounded by this opulent music. Between the movements of the Missa Salisburgensis will be works by Georg Muffat and Johann Stadlmeyer as well asmore Biber and Gregorian chant.

A great preview of the event from Concerti.de is here.
