Traditional Advent and Christmas carols enjoy a special status within the musical accompaniment of Christmas. Here, a combination of folk and sophisticated music, such as the Chorgemeinschaft Neubeuern has been practicing for decades, offers an ideal constellation. Even though its repertoire, featuring works from Early Baroque to the 20th century, is highly successful at home and abroad, the choir, founded in 1967 by Enoch zu Guttenberg, and its over 100 members stay true to their roots and preserve the custom of alpine Christmas carols.

With the new album Weihnachtssingen, the Neubeurer present a high level of musical diversity and talent. Apart from the choral works, they perform vocal duets and trios, music for strings and clarinets, as well as harp solos.

The particular, very special interpretation of the traditional songs from Bavaria, Tyrol, Salzburg, and Styria is what gives the Chorgemeinschaft that distinctive acoustic colour. They don’t merely sing because of the beautiful sounds, but rather because making music is a matter close to their heart. And the listener can sense it! This is their secret of over 40 years of success.

"…Some of these alpine Christmas carols have long since been marketed as vocal folklore. Guttenberg and his choir are able to restore the folk musical nativeness of these all-too familiar tunes…"
