Joseph I.: Regina coeli

Emperor Joseph I (1678 - Vienna - 1711) was the oldest son and therefore succesor to the throne of Leopold I and also inherited his musical talent from his father. His contemporaries describe him as being well-read and interested in the fine arts. During his reign, the court chapel was expanded to the highest number of musicians and other members that it ever had. The style of his solo motet Regina coeli displays strong Italian influences, solo violin and voice are interacting partners who are accompanied by the other instruments. Aside from this solo motet, only two other secular compositions by Joseph I are known. (E. Stadler)
