My favourite musical discoveries in 2016

At the end of a year I like to ask myself what new musical discoveries I have made in the year. Well, for 2016 for me the greatest were:

3 Requiems: from Kozlovsky (!!!!), Cherubini's second Requiem, and from Donizetti:

A wonderful symphony from F. Witt from 1819 (mov. 4 at 21:45... - great counterpoint !!!):

Not so much a work, rather a composer - Jan Dismas Zelenka.

The Schubert song is lovely!
