This is an outstanding rendering of Praetorius and his contemporaries. The Cantate Chamber Singers were a beautifully balanced ensamble under the direction of Gisele Becker, who is one of the best of the best coral conductors in the Washington Metropolitan area. The Folger Consort offered a virtuoso performance. The program, A German Christmas, In Dulci Jubilo is as good as it gets.
In Dulci Jubilo: A German Christmas
With Cantate Chamber Singers and an ensemble of brass, wind, strings, and organ
The Consort celebrates the holidays in the Elizabethan Theatre with the festive music of Michael Praetorius, the most prolific German composer of the early 17th century. The son of a Lutheran minister, he more than anyone else was responsible for combining the wonderful north German Lutheran chorale tradition with the new Italian developments of the Baroque. In 1610, the last volume of his collection of over 1000 Lutheran chorale settings, Musae Zioniae, was published. The Consort performs some of the great Christmas favorites from this collection, including In Dulci Jubilo, Es ist ein Rose, and Puer Natus Est.
