As the basis for his "Oratorio per il Natale" Zechner used 4 Verses of the hymn "Ermuntre dich, mein schwacher Geist" by Johann Rist. He also used some verses by another author. The reason for the reworking of Rist's text was undoubtedly Zechner's idea of writing a dramatic compositon after the model of the Italian cantata, rather than a succession of verses. It is not insignificant that he described this work as an "Oratorio".
