A new edition of Leo’s exquisite Salve Regina in F major.
In 6 sections – Largo, Allegro, Largo, Allegretto, Recitativo, Largo it has excellent variation between sections, the fourth running directly into the recit using a descending figuration. This piece has the ability to really move the listener. It is one of the works which begs the question why this composer was forgotten for so long?
Range: d – b flat”
