Catalogue Number: 07U028
Reference: 777 999-2
Description: This 1756 oratorio was inspired by Graun’s Der Tod Jesu of the previous year and is similarly imbued with the spirit of the Empfindsamkeit style as quiet reflection and an optimistic mood are as present as pain and outrage while Italianate operatic effects are often present in both arias and choruses. German-English texts. Hanna Herfurtner (soprano), Marian Dijkhuizen (mezzo), Georg Poplutz (tenor), Mauro Borgioni (bass), Kölner Akademie; Michael Alexander Willens.
