A German Christmas



Harpsichord, played by Webb Wiggins

 A German Christmas

In Dulci Jubilo

December 11-21, 2009


Folger Consort celebrates the holidays in the Elizabethan Theater with the festive music of Michael Praetorius, the most prolific German composer of the early 17th century. The son of a Lutheran minister, he was responsible for combining the wonderful north German Lutheran chorale tradition with the new Italian developments of the Baroque. In 1610, the last volume of his collection of over 1000 chorale settings,  Musae Zioniae, was published. The Consort performs some of the great Christmas favorites from this collection, including  In Dulci Jubilo,  Es ist ein Rose, and  Puer Natus Est .
