Album title: Motets. Composer(s): Gabrieli, Schutz. Performer: The King's Consort/King. For a shorter, pre-prandial summary of the Nativity, Schütz’s Weihnachtshistorien (Christmas Story) should be in every Christmas collection. Its short duration (35 minutes) does not imply superficiality, especially with a tenor as freshly communicative as the youthful John Mark Ainsley singing the Evangelist, single-handedly relating most of the story, effectively punctuated chorally. Four vocally resplendent Christmas Motets by Gabrieli (Schütz’s teacher) are included as the coupling.

The King’s Consort/Robert King. rec. December 1989, St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London. The budget-price Hyperion recording of Schütz’s Christmas Story, with Christmas motets by his Venetian mentor, Giovanni Gabrieli, is clearly related to the season, the K617 recording much less so, though it ends with a setting of the Magnificat; I just couldn’t resist including it here, I find it such an enthralling recording. Strongly recommended for Christmas Eve, perhaps after hearing the Lessons and Carols from King’s, and throughout the Christmas period.
