Erlebach: Baroque Christmas Cantatas 2

Erlebach: Baroque Christmas Cantatas 2
Title: Baroque Christmas Cantatas 2
Label: Cpo Records

One of my Christmas album musts of my own production is the Mitteldeutsche Weihnacht (Central German Christmas) with the Sächsisches Vocalensemble under Matthias Jung (CD 3116463). At my special request the same ensemble has now recorded a second selection of Christmas gems for cpo from one of the most important collections of Lutheran church music from the Fürsten- und Landesschule St. Augustin in Grimma in Central Saxony. The focus again is formed by festive, magnificent church cantatas (most of them including Christmas trumpet splendor) by composers from Central Germany who were famous musicians and held prominent posts during the years before and after 1700. To name only a few: Johann Schelle, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, and of course Johann Rosenmüller; but the compositional skills of composers whose names are no longer remembered today such as Christian Liebe or Gottfried Vogel also inspire the greatest wonder among listeners.
