Joseph Leopold Eybler had frequent contacts with the great composers of his day: both Joseph Haydn and Albrechtsberger were his teachers and friends, and he had a close friendship with Mozart and Johann Michael Haydn. His major Christmas oratorio "Die Hirten bei der Krippe zu Bethlehem" (1794) was composed four years before Haydn's "Die Schopfung" (The Creation). The almost operatic work displays a wealth of different facets: from the virtuoso aria, through the tranquil depiction of nature in music, to the portrayal of the most heartfelt emotions. As a true jewel of Viennese classicism, "Die Hirten" (The Shepherds) is a worthwhile addition to the Christmas repertoire. Score available separately - see item CA.9700700.
