ISBN M-007-05556-1. Key: B-dur (b-flat major). Language: German/English.

A "solo cantata with chorus," which makes considerable demands on the soloist. Three of the eight movements are for the choir: two carefully and expressively harmonized chorales, and a sonorous and lively movement to the words "Ehre sei Gott in der Hohe." In the first aria, the ad libitum hightrumpet, played "con sordino," lends a gentle Christmas radiance to the words "O Freudengetone, wie lieblich, wie schone."

Score available separately - see item CA.3911900.
