Description: All but one of these Christmas cantatas date from the 1740s, when Graupner was easing into the new galant style and like all those in the release above, tend toward the lyrical and thoughtful since the resources he had at Darmstadt did not include a chorus and did not allow for the extravagant orchestration of Mattheson's (a bit further above) works in the genre. German-English texts. Veronika Winter (soprano), Franz Vitzthum (alto), Jan Kobow (tenor), Markus Flaig (bass), Das Kleine Konzert; Hermann Max.
