Tune of the Day: Alle Jahre wieder

 German Christmas carol

“Alle Jahre wieder” (“Every year again”) is one of the most well-known German-language Christmas carols. It dates back to 1837, when Wilhelm Hey wrote its lyrics. A couple different tunes have been associated with these lyrics over the years, but none of them ever became as popular as the melody by Friedrich Silcher (1842) that is sung today.

Tune of the Day: Capriccio in G major by Quantz

This capriccio is one of 24 pieces attributed to the famous German flutist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz to have survived in a manuscript titled Fantasier og Preludier. 8.

This manuscript has been kept in the Giedde Collection (named after its founder, Danish composer W.H.R.R. Giedde) in the Royal Library of Copenhagen, which hosts a fairly comprehensive collection of flute music from the second half of the 18th century.

Tune of the Day: Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her

 Popular German hymn tune and carol

“Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her” (most often translated as “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come”, although a more literal translation would be “From High in the Heavens, that's where I come from”) is a hymn text about the Nativity of Jesus, written by Martin Luther in 1534. The hymn is most often sung to a melody that first appeared in 1539, and that was likely composed by Luther as well. This version quickly became a classic Christmas carol, and many famous composers referred to it in their compositions, including Eccard, Praetorius, Pachelbel, J.S. Bach, J.C. Bach, von Weber, Mendelssohn, Stravinsky, and many others.

Thanks to Gabriela for suggesting this tune!

Tune of the Day: Two Menuets by Montéclair

 for two flutes

These two minuets constitute the second movement of the first of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto.
