Christophorus now reissues a 2003 recording previously on French label K617 but long discontinued, featuring Claire
, Hans-Jörg Mammel, the Choeur de Chambre de Namur and La Fenice, all under the direction of Jean Tubéry.

Heinrich Schütz’s Weihnachsthistorie of 1660 is definitely one of the composer’s masterpieces, and reminds the listener by its sheer beauty and its obvious quality, why it achieved such a resounding success upon its first performance in Dresden. Many choirs requested the composer’s authorisation to perform it as part of their Christmas liturgy, but Schütz quickly took steps to ensure control over performances, mindful of his rights. In this case, musical inspiration and business sense unquestionably went hand in hand!
