Carl Loewe is known nowadays almost exclusively as a composer of ballads, but he was close to the spirit of his time and composed for the rapidly growing requirements of the emerging bourgeoisie of the Biedermeier period. Das Suhnopfer des neuen Bundes is in this style, and reveals a wealth of expressivity using a modest scoring. The solo parts can easily be performed by good amateurs, the well-known chorales give audiences the opportunity to join in the singing, and the scoring, mainly for small string group, underlines the emotions expressed by the soloists. In this oratorio we can hear Loewe's admiration for the Bach Passions, yet the musical language is so typical of him and his time that something new could confidently develop from it. Score and part available separately - see item CA.2300200.
