Reviews of this publication:


* Georg Philipp Telemann

In the words of Karl Wilhelm Ramler, this cantata is one of the most
beautiful Christmas
compositions of the 18th century. Written for a performance in 1759,
it combines festive
trumpet sounds with moving chorale settings.

Telemann has used his musical resources with moderation and
restraint, allowing the chorus
to appear at the central passages in both sections and painting an
unobtrusive pastoral
background for the Christmas setting. A worthy alternative in any
Christmas concert.

Our edition contains an English translation of the German text in an
appendix and follows
the Urtext of the Telemann Edition (vol. 30), thereby providing a
reliable text reflecting
the latest findings of scholarship.

- Festive Christmas composition

- Urtext from the Telemann Edition
