Carl Loewe Passion oratorio Das Suhnopfer des neuen Bundes on Spotify

After someone asked a question about this Passion oratorio on Facebook Page of Dutch Radio 4, I started to listen. And stayed listening… “Das Suhnopfer des neuen Bundes" (The Expiatory Sacrifice of the New Covenant ), composed around 1847 contains many details that make it different from other works around this period (and certainly different than the more bland other large choral works by Loewe...!). Enjoyed this “alternative” Good Friday music very much, hope you will do it as well!
