Bad bruckenau: st. john's passion evolves

Until the end of carnival, the singers have to spontaneously adjust to new rehearsal times and changing rehearsal rooms.

Heinrich fidelis muller (1837 to 1905) was a pastor and always composed the pieces for his congregations. He never pursued any real artistic ambitions. Nevertheless, he has a "certain moment" in his works hit. It was important for muller to reflect his impression of the oberammergau passion plays, especially for the passion.

The core of muller's oratorios was formed by simple four-part choral movements. The composer wanted every church choir to be able to rehearse it and to be able to perform it without any problems at other events outside of oratorios. He arranged solo parts in such a way that they could be sung either by talented choristers or by amateurs who had been recruited for the occasion. All instrumental accompaniments are from muller's hand, accompaniments for piano and harmonium respectively.
