A Fine Mass for the Morning

That to which I am presently listening.
Johann Valentin Rathgeber - Missale tum rurale tum civile, Op.12 "Messe von Muri"

Rathgeber (3 April 1682 – 2 June 1750 Baroque Era), a Benedictine priest, was a very versatile and productive composer and was one of the most popular and respected composers in southern Germany. He composed both secular and sacred works, the majority of his output being sacred vocal works. He wrote several hundred works, mainly masses (43), hymns, arias, litanies, requiems, magnificats, offertories (164), Marian antiphons (44) and also instrumental concertos (24) and songs.
