Joseph, lieber Joseph mein

This wonderfully sonorous carol was written for use at Vespers after the Magnificat during the Christmas season. Praetorius himself would have directed it in the grand parish church of St Jacobi in Hamburg, where he was organist. The choir regularly divides into two halves, one of high voices, one of low, singing in alternation.
