What an inspiration! Jean Anne Shafferman has combined Praetorius's timeless 16th century carol with an adaptation of the "Adagio" from Beethoven's Sonata Pathetique. The combination is as natural as if the two were originally written as one, with Beethoven's flowing eighth notes giving life and breath to Praetorius' chorus. Certain to become a standard for Christmas worship and concerts!
