About

The pieces on this album originate largely from the Christmette by Michael Praetorius. In addition, nativity hymns by a range of different composers from the same era have been compiled. In Lutheran style the compositions on this album include solo-pieces, choir arrangements, double-choral motets, instrumental pieces and of course the church organ repertoire. The listener can also hear pieces, which were not necessarily meant for Christmas, but fit the programme very well. The function of some of the pieces is liturgical, like “Gloria”, “Our Father” or the mighty Entrance-Prelude. Two other pieces are meditative moments about the name of Jesus.
