    The likely contenders that I can find are:

    Johann Stadlmayer: born ?Freising, Bavaria, c1580, died Innsbruck, 12 July 1648; musician to the Archbishop of Salzburg, 1603; Kapellmeister to the court of Archduke Maximilian II at Innsbruck, 1607; seems to have composed around 20 settings of the Magnificat.

    Giovanni Giorgi: born early 18th century, died June 1762; Priest and musician; 1719 Maestro di Capella at St John Lateran, Rome; 1725 Mestre de Capela to the court at Lisbon.

    Apart from the Britten Jubilate Deo, I don't recognise any of it at all, so I'll be listening with ears wide open. I'm curious to hear what Judith Bingham's done with the Corpus Christi Carol and very glad to be hearing from Manchester.

    Unusual maybe, but isn't that good thing from time to time? I'll go with the thoughts expressed in #6

    Reminder: today @ 3.30.

    From the cathedral website:
    "The Cathedral Choir consists of up to 20 trebles (boys and girls) and nine Lay-Clerks, who are all professional singers in and around Manchester."
