Christum wir sollen loben schon - Nun komm der Heyden Heiland - Den die Hirten lobten sehre - Der
Morgenstern ist aufhgedrungen - Es ist ein Ros entsprungen - Joseph, lieber Joseph mein - Resonet in laudibus - Als der gütige Gott - Fit porta Christi pervia - Gaude, gaude laetare - In dulci jubilo - Mit Ernst, o Menschenkinder - Nun komm der Heyden Heyland - Gregorianische Antiphonen (O Adonai O clavis David - O Emmanuel - O Oriens - O Radix Jesse - O rex gentium - O Sapientia) - Vom Himmel hoch - u.a.

The vocal ensemble Stimmwerck supported by harp, lute and organ – has, with great scholarship, compiled a programme of music for Advent and Christmas from the time of the Reformation. Starting with the Gregorian chant of the Catholic liturgy, especially the so called "O Antiphons", which were sung to the Magnificat in the last days of Advent, and elaborate Latin motets, it presents the development of Protestant German song as set by Michael Praetorius, Samuel Scheidt and Johann Hermann Schein. Here are to be found old friends, the almost "folk songlike" next to wonderful treasures, which are produced in this form for the first time all presented with the crystal clear and beautiful vocal sound, which one is used to from Stimmwerck.
