Reinhard Keiser, highly regarded by his contemporaries as a composer (primarily of operas), also wrote a considerable number of sacred works, such as cantatas, masses, passions, and oratorios. Among these works, most of which are lost, this Dialogus von der Geburt Christi, published here for the first time, occupies a special place as Keiser's only surviving Christmas oratorio. It is a an alternative to the current Christmas repertoire. Opulently scored, well-known Christmas chorales are presented, while in other movements the intimacy of the scene at the crib is evoked. The colorful and finely nuanced instrumentation is contrasted with freely flowing, easily singable choral movements. Score available separately - see item CA.1038600.
