This is Christoph Graupner's chorale to the 1753 Christmas day cantata Jauchzet ihr Himmel, erfreue dich Erde. The orchestra requires 2 oboes, 2 flutes, 2 horns, 4 (!!) Timpani, Strings, basso continuo, and SATB soloists. Graupner never changed the original chorale melody and instead lavished he creativity on the instrumental accompaniment and ritornellos between the chorale verses, basing it on kernels within the chorale melody. This would be Graupner's last Christmas cantata, by the following year, he lost his eyesight and was unable to write music, and lived another six years before dying in 1760.

Ein Weihnachts Oratorium
Ex Tempore, Mannheimer Hofkapelle, Florian Heyerick conducting.

Director of music to the Darmstadt court, Graupner¹s compositions are now slowly beginning to be rediscovered; Florian Heyerick has also devoted his doctoral thesis to them. This recording brings together several of the Christmas cantatas from the almost 1400 cantatas composed by Graupner. These works are real jewels thanks to the variety and the originality of their structure and instrumental colours; their rediscovery now completes a chapter in music history that was once almost totally unknown.
