Wonderful Mystery is a collection of seven Christmas carols for choir and instrumental accompaniment (harp or piano), whereby the music has a completely new setting. The basis of all seven pieces are English Christmas texts from the 15th and 16th centuries. When composing, Jan Wilke orientated himself on traditional models of Anglican church music; for example, the first verses are often solo or in unisono or, in the last verse, a crowning upper voice. It was important to him to convey the emotionality of these timeless texts as well as an easy execution – the singing of these pieces should arouse in equal measure the wonder and joy about the Christmas miracle in performers and listeners alike. A collection arousing in equal measure the wonder and joy about the Christmas miracle in performers and listeners alike.
The harp part (compact version) is available seperately as an e-print.
