Bertold Hummel



Christmas Music by Bertold Hummel


Making music at Christmas time was natural for Bertold Hummel throughout his life. As a chorister in his father's school choir, as the precentor in his Freiburg parish, as a cellist or as a happy father at the piano, he always enjoyed taking an active part in the Christmas festivities. As a composer, he enjoyed writing new settings for the old Christmas carols and wrote numerous compositions ranging from simple choral pieces to chamber and orchestral music and even to the large-scale choral fantasia "O du fr÷hliche Weihnachtszeit" for 2 choirs, 4 organs, trumpets and trombones - works with which he moved many people.
