Notes & Reviews:

Musically Philipp Ahmann and the NDR Chor lead the listener through the eras from the Reformation up to and into the 20th century with song sets and compositions from among others, Michael Praetorius, Peter Cornelius , Johannes Brahms, Heinrich Kaminski and Alban Berg.

The old hymn "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen (Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming)" leads like a guide through the program and is to be heard in three different musical settings. Its contents are the link between all of the pieces, some of which refer to biblical stories, and others that bring the Christmas story through pictures from nature, visions or legends to life.

A true treasure of German Christmas carols!
