Praetorius: Christmas Music



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Michael Praetorius was a hugely versatile German composer. His 1603 post as Kapellmeister in Wolfenbuttel necessitated extensive travel throughout Germany, enabling him to establish widespread acclaim as a conductor and musical advisor. Praetorius's church music is much less known today than it should be, partly because of the sheer volume that he composed. This beautiful selection of hymns, chorales and carols attempts to reproduce the effect of a performance under Praetorius's direction; soloists are drawn from the choir and instruments of late sixteenth- or early seventeenth-century design are used.

A glorious early Baroque Christmas treat'(Harmonia)

'Well crafted music, sensitively performed and recorded'(Gramophone)
