Rudolf Mauersberger, the cantor of the Dresden Kreuzkirche, shaped his Christvesper in the Christmas tradition of the "Erzgebirge" in Saxony. The work underwent a long period of gestation and first attained its final form in 1963. The entire church is used for a performance: On the altar the Christmas story from Luke is presented, in four different corners of the church the "Quempas" or responsorial singing between congregation and cantor takes place, and in the gallery "Die Weissagung" or "Ehre sei Gott in der Hohe" are sung; in addition the chorales and songs are performed by a separate group of instruments. Thus the Christvesper, this impressive choral work which is still in the realm of tonality, provides a new accent in the well-known Christmas repertoire. Score available separately - see item CA.720100.
