Hugo Distler "The Christmas Story"

I hadn't been aware of this wonderful work due to the scarcity of performances. It was one of the many of Distler's works that were banned by the NAZI's as "decadent".

I'd guess that it was about 40 minutes long. It and an audience sing-along of Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming comprised the post-intermission part of the performance. The first half of the concert consisted of rose-themed songs, most of which compared either Jesus or Mary to a rose.
