About

The Kölner Akademie under its proven conductor Michael Willens now presents more atmospheric Christmas compositions by Francesco Durante, one of the greatest Neapolitan church composers of the first half of the eighteenth century.

Durante continued the Neapolitan tradition of composing Christmas cantatas or motets with a series of vocal works that he assigned to the category of the ‘Pastorale’ in order to indicate their relation to the Feast of Christmas and to the shepherds in the field.

A delightfully relaxed and tuneful Nativity Cantatas… Think Vivaldi without the rhythmic hyperactivity” - BBC Music Magazine 4*/5* on Vol.1 (7775712)
