Notes & Reviews:

Telemann's later works include several sacred oratorios in an absolutely logical sequence - Der Tod Jesu, Die Auferstehung, Die Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu, Der Tag des Gerichts - as well as the two-part Donner-Ode, a cantata on Psalm models on the occasion of the Lisbon earthquake. Always wrestling with a compositional design suitable to the subject and the text, Telemann in each case strikes a specific note inherent in the work; he employs his compositional means in a way that develops an unmistakably individual character for the work. The Day of Judgment is not, for instance, only a monument in the history of the German oratorio, but introduces the theological discussions and eschatological thought of that time.

BBC Music Magazine
Fine musicianship from Max's musicians in Telemann's remarkably placid apocalypse cantata. The Chorus of Vices has more fun than the Chorus of the Blessed.
