Jan Zach

After arriving in Prague in 1724, Jan Zach initiated studies with Bohuslav Cernohorsky and accepted several musical posts, including those as violinist at St. Gallus with St. Martin and those as organist at St. Martin, in the monastic chapel from the Merciful Brethren, with the Minorite chapel of St. Ann. Pursuing various moves, he was appointed Kapellmeister in the court from the Prince-Elector of Mainz. His compositions, a lot of that have been rhythmically affected by Czech dances, consist of people, requiems, arias, Misereres, vespers, hymns, sinfonias, partitas, sonatas, preludes, fugues, and concertos. He also worked well like a music instructor in the Jesuit college in Munich and spent nearly all his old age traveling throughout European countries. Zach’s compositions are nearly exclusively recorded beneath the Arte Nova label, specifically his vocal and choral functions. His Miserere in C small and his Offertorium, Terra tremit in C had been both documented in the 1980s, while his Missa Solemnis in D and Stabat Mater in D small were documented in 1995 and 1997, respectively.
