This is Christoph Graupner's concluding chorale to the 1744 Epiphany cantata Merk auf, mein Herz. The orchestra requires 2 chalumeaux (early form of the clarinet), bassoon, 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.

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.
