Heinrich Ignaz von Biber‘s Battalia á 10 in D major, C.61 (1673) is pretty darn fascinating to my ears … hope you enjoy too! Around 2:00 on Part 1 it’s pretty darn amazing!

Here it is played by A Far Cry:

Part 2


  1. A battle, indeed. Although I’ve not heard anything of that period go so far off of center before.

    Once again you’ve found another gem to delight our ears. Thanks!

  2. I was just playing it for Dan, Bob. His mouth dropped open.

    The first time I heard it I thought perhaps I had two YouTube videos playing at once!
