product description

Christmas oratorio for six voices (choir ad lib.), 2 instruments (recorder/cornetti/violins) & b. c., Roma 1630, edited by Michael Dücker. The pastoral play (duration 40'') tells the nativity story after Luke the Evangelist, and shows Kapsperger at the height of his artistry. Christmas series In Dulci Jubilo 

„These are most attractive pieces and although considerably more demanding than the collections of his contemporaries, particularly in the fugues where parts pass between the hands, and care will also be required in the pseudo-polyphonic writing in the dances. It is much to be hoped that these exciting suites will take their place in recitals.“ harpsichord & fortepiano (GB), Autumn/2015
