This is one of a group of five short settings of the Litany of Loreto by Bohemian composers that were entered into the catalogue (1765) – all from Zelenka’s collection but not listed in his Inventarium. These settings probably were acquired for use in the Dresden Hofkirche following the expansion in 1727 of the Kapellknaben ensemble and of Marian devotions. In that year the annual letter to Rome reported: ‘At the beginning of the school year the number of young musicians was increased in order to amplify Marian devotions, and all Saturdays and also ferial days preceding Marian feasts will be celebrated with litanies [...].’ Annuae Litterae Missionis Dresdensis ad annum 1727, ARSI (I-Rar), Boh 143, 19.
The composers of similar Litanies of Loreto (all provenance of Zelenka) are Czerwenka (missing), Gerbich (Görbig), the Cistercian Grünberger (OC), Muck, and Schütze. Each composer is also represented in the Osek music catalogues. In some copies of these litanies the scribe gives a phonetic spelling or an interpretation of the written name of the composer: Korbischi = Görbig or Gerbich; Krusberger = Grünberger; Muk = Muck.
