Notes & Reviews:

During the first half of the twentieth century songbooks were published in order to promote sacred and secular choral song among the general population. The Volksliederbuch für den gemischten Chor (Folk Songs for Mixed Choir songbook) was published in Leipzig in 1915, and the Volksliederbuch für die Jugend (Folk Songs for Young People) first appeared in 1928. The Norddeutscher Figuralchor has drawn on these two collections of songs for the program of this CD.

Here traditional Christmas carols such as "In dulci jubilo," "Schlaf' mein Kindelein," "Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming," and "Silent Night" are heard in a fascinating new depth. Composers such as Carl Herner, Friedrich Silcher, and Felix Woyrsch are also included.

During the three decades since its founding the Norddeutscher Figuralchor (Northern German Figural Choir) has become one of Germany's leading chamber choirs. The singers have won many prizes at the German Choir Competition with their conductor Jörg Straube. They have received four Echo Klassik prizes for their CD recordings - most recently for their disc with secular choral works by Francis Poulenc.
