    Hey it's been a long time someone posted something in this thread.
    12 december i'm going to my first Bach's Weihnachtsoratorium. I discovered it a few years ago but now i finally have the change to hear it live i'm so excited.

    But really the best work i know of Beethoven is his oratorium called Christus am ölberge, because im a huge Cristina Deutekom fan.
    I'm sorry i have to admit i only know these 2 oratoria but hopefully i will be inspired by lots more but that's a slow process in my case. For those interested i'll insert a link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1c_GJyeVcE

    I just both Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, The Kingdom and The Apostles. Bought all three with Elmer at the helm. We’ll see how I like them.

    For me Die Schöpfung stands above all others.

    Oratorios are among my absolutely favourite genres! Here's my top ten.

    1. Die Schöpfung (Haydn)
    2. Das Buch mit Sieben Siegeln (Schmidt)
    3. Christus (Liszt)
    4. Die Legende des Heiligen Elisabeth (Liszt)
    5. Svata Ludmila (Dvorak)
    6. Paulus (Mendelssohn)
    7. Elias (Mendelssohn)
    8. Das Paradies und die Peri (Schumann)
    9. Les Beatitudes (Franck)
    10. Die Jahreszeiten (Haydn)
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.
