Format: Audio CD
... or, as the Germans say, "Es weihnachtet sehr." Praetorius was quite the serious religious musician and some of his works are heavy going. The selections here are of the sing-along variety, and I have been known to do so in the car when the mood struck me. It helps to know the German lyrics, too, and I've heard these selections so often, I've memorized them! I don't know, however, why the dances from "Terpsichore" are included on this CD. "Terpsichore" has nothing to do with Christmas, especially not the earnest type of Christmas the Germans of that time celebrated. What the heck, the "Terpsichore" melodies have a good beat, and you can dance to them. All in all, a nice CD, and I have several copies.

I came across this CD by chance, and it has become my all-time favorite Christmas CD. When I bought it, the only song I recognized was "Es ist en Ros' entsprunger", but all the songs are wonderful, some being choral, some by the "Parley of Instruments", some both. Wonderful!

The perfomances on this CD are all first rate. There in only one problem, and depending on how many times you may wish to purchase this CD, it may be a big one. This CD like so many of this Hyperion brand vintage corrupts and many tracks become unplayable. My copy of this CD is five years old and now I cannot play beyond track five. This is somewhat of a problem if you want the remaining 25 minutes (or 5 tracks)

The selections on the CD can't be beat and the music in itself is incomparable. However, I prefer a more melodic singing style in this type of thing (in comparison to the focus on period accuracy that is "in" in Baroque recordings right now); the sound is more percussive and so the music is not as relaxing as it could be.
