Performer Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This world premiere recording of the Weihnachtsoratorium by Reinhard Keiser makes available one of the few surviving sacred works by a musician who was highly regarded by his contemporaries, primarily as a composer of operas. Well known Christmas chorales, opulently scored, with rich polyphony, are joined by movements which depict with great delicacy the scene around the crib at Bethlehem. This CD includes, also recorded for the first time, the Magnificat by Christoph Graupner, written in 1772 to support his application for the post of Thomaskantor in Leipzig.
