Zelenka‘s last mass composition, Missa Omnium Sanctorum, is an example of emotionally charged style of extreme virtuosity, which is based main­ly on the Italian Catholic tradition but sprinkled with Zelenka‘s originality and astonishing inven­tion. Handel‘s music for the psalm Dixit Dominus also pushes the limit of interpretation possibi­lities: the listener is truly overwhelmed by the endless fireworks of ideas and the employment of various compositional techniques.
