"In the present recording, the six-part cycle of 'Psalmi de B.M. Virgine' has been expanded into a small Vesper of St. Mary. In accordance with the liturgical customs of the time, brief sonatas and solo motets are performed in place of the introductory antiphons. The sonata introducing the Magnificat is from Biber's 1683 collection 'Fidicinium sacro-profanum' printed in 1683, whereas the motets assigned to the remaining psalms are taken from Johann Caspar Kerll's first opus, the 'Delectus sacrarum cantionum' published in Munich in 1669"--Page 7-8 of program notes.
