This recording highlights early music composed in Poland during the 17th and 18th centuries. Among others, Franciszek Lilius is especially notable. A descendant of the Italian Gigli family, he made a number of important contributions to Polish music, of which his lovely Missa Brevissima is one. Many of the composers represented here are best known for their polychoral, Renaissance-style pieces; nevertheless, this recording focuses on pieces written in the newer Baroque concertante style.
