New CDs with Early Music. Attention to two recently released CDs with music for Advent and Christmas: “Es ist ein Ros” by conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann and “Auf, jauchzet ihr Christen – Christmas Cantatas” by Kölner Akademie.

The first CD was released in the Praetorius memorial year 2021: Michael Praetorius died in 1621 (and was almost certainly born in 1571). The recording appeared at the end of the year, which is why it contains only music for Advent and Christmas.

The second CD contains four cantatas by Ernst Wilhelm Wolf, one of the composers of the generation of Bach’s sons, who has recently come into somewhat greater prominence.

1. Nun komm der Heiden Heiland a 4
2. Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her a 8
