_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.
