For the first time in the history of the Festival, organisers prepared albums signed by the label of the Festival. The albums are of registered concerts that took place within the scope of subsequent editions of the event. These two unique positions shall reach the publishing market in the performance of the band Europa Galante conducted by the fantastic violinist, conductor, discoverer of the lost masterpieces of the Baroque – Fabio Biondi, being the wake of his concise and long-term cooperation with the Festival:
Gian Francesco de Majo – Gesù sotto il peso della Croce (Misteria Paschalia 2006)
Alessandro Scarlatti – La Santissima Annunziata (Misteria Paschalia 2007)
The albums are released for sale in EMPIK salons and Music Corner in all of Poland, as well as at the Music Bookstore Kurant, Paganini shop and Tourist Information InfoKrakow.

Thanks to the license obtained from Programme 2 of the Polish Radio, creating a unique series of albums in their form will be possible, concentrating around the pieces of more widely unknown or after centuries returned onto concert stages, thereby constituting a unique collection of newly discovered baroque masterpieces.
The idea of creating an album publication signed by the label of the Festival is also a rare promotional activity on a national scale, impacting the increase of positive recognition of the label Misteria Paschalia also in the awareness of music lovers abroad.
