The present album is another in a series featuring music by Józef Zeidler, one of the leading representatives of the Classicist period in Polish music. He is a composer who for many years was known solely to a narrow circle of musicologists, one of the reasons being a scarcity of existing biographical data. What is known is that Zeidler arrived at the Holy Mountain in Gostyn in 1775. The local monastery of St. Philip Neri boasted one of the finest musical chapels in the whole of western Poland. It also ran a school for talented youth. Zeidler died on April 4, 1809 and was buried in the basilica of the Congregation of St. Philip Neri. A large part of his oeuvre has survived in the monastery archives; some of his compositions are kept in the musical collections of other monastery libraries in western Poland, as well as in the Pauline monastery at the Black Madonna shrine in Czestochowa. The works included in the present recording come from the musical collections in Gostyn, Gniezno and Poznan.
