Sacred Vocal Music from 18th Century Switzerland

​Catalogue no: Guild GM CD 7248

 

This unique collection brings together the findings of recent research into the field of church music in Switzerland. It was long believed that the Reformation stunted its musical growth, but musical activities that operated in a parallel fashion to the restraints imposed by the church have now been revealed.
