One of his finest anthems.


  • Marfisa says:

    Is a five-year old writing SD’s headlines now?

  • E says:

    Glorious! This, too, is something orchestras should be playing when they can’t play full strength.
    Many thanks!

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Glorious music; wonderful, prolific composer. What’s not to love? There’s a great vitality in this, as in much of his work.

  • Le Křenek du jour says:

    Mala Punica, or: Captain Lebrecht His Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Baroque Pun.
    (Really superhyperatrocious, Mr. Lebrecht.
    (I absolutely love it. Please keep ’em coming.))

    Incidentally, seen framed at this angle, the Hallenser Ratshof really looks like a Stasi prison.
