One of my indispensable Christmas CDs from my own production is the “Mitteldeutsche Weihnacht” with the Saxon Vocal Ensemble under Matthias Jung (CD 3116463). At my special request, the same ensemble has now recorded a new selection of Christmas treasures from one of the most important collections of Protestant church music from the St. Augustin princely and state school in Grimma in central Saxony for cpo. The focus is once again on magnificent, festive church cantatas (mostly with Christmassy trumpet splendor) by composers from Central Germany who were also well-known musicians in leading positions from the period before and after 1700. To name just a few: Johann Schelle, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach and of course Johann Rosenmüller, but also the composers whose names are no longer known today, such as Christian Liebe or Gottfried Vogel, command the greatest admiration for their compositional skills.
