This is well suited for Advent celebrations in Germany as it has 21 easy recorder duets of international Christmas songs with an equally easy guitar and vocal accompaniment. These songs are ideal for beginners. The tunes come from Germany, Spain, Russia, Switzerland (Rätoromanic), Bohemia, Slovenia, USA, France, England, Finland and Italy. Most of the lyrics are in German but a few have the original texts as well. Go tell it on the mountain appears under the unlikely title of "Sagt's allen nah und ferne"!
Beate Heinecke introduced this piece into the Alt-Aumund Blockflötenensemble repertoire for our "Niklastag" rehearsal in 1999 whereby I had the happy task of providing a concertina accompaniment instead of the guitar.
