The first three of Biber's remarkable Mystery Sonatas are interspersed with lively Advent motets by Michael Praetorius. Heinrich Schütz' Weihnachtshistorie, written in 1664, is notable for its dramatic interludes and imaginative textures, not least the music for the High Priests, scored for four solo basses, two trombones and continuo.
