Reprint of the first edition "Carl Loewe, the same age as Franz Schubert, lived through many stylistic developments in the 19th century. His music unites elements of the opera with the domestic music of the middle class ...The Passion Oratorio after biblical texts gives us the tempting opportunity to perform a many-sided work with dramatic effect and with relatively modest forces ...One could well imagine that certain scenes from the work could be performed separately, for example the beautiful, self-contained first part (Anointing and the Lord's Supper), which concludes with the lively fugue to Psalm 117."
