Catalogue Number: 05U021
Reference: GCD 924006
Description: In the form of a series of lyrical contemplations by three “characters” - Evangelist, Faithful Souls and Christian Church - Stölzel’s 1720 oratorio is one of the earliest of its type. Not overly demanding of its singers yet coloring the accompaniments with oboe and flute alongside the strings, it was popular enough to be performed outside of its original location of Saxe-Gotha. German-English texts. Ágnes Kovács (soprano), Péter Bárány (countertenor), Zoltán Megyesi (tenor), Lóránt Najbauer (bass), Purcell Choir, Orfeo Orchestra; György Vashegyi.
