Ecce, advenit Dominator Dominus, thus begins the introit to the feast of "Epiphanies": "Behold, arrived is the ruler, the Lord. The composer Winfried Offele (*1939) chose this as the title of his large-scale, almost two-hour oratorio for Advent. The work has grown together from works of many decades and in the last ten years has been completely tailored to the wonderful possibilities and high quality of the many choirs and vocal ensembles at the Münster in Constance. Seven choirs and ensembles - from the children's choir, Gregorian schola, various vocal ensembles to the large Münster choir - are involved. They are accompanied by soloists, a large orchestra, organ and congregational singing, so that a total of almost 250 musicians were engaged in this production. The oratorio begins almost archaically with a large orchestral introduction, develops through late romantic sounds and the use of various modern styles to stylistic elements from pop music. The various Advent chorales, which serve as the basis for the different parts of the oratorio and are heard again and again, ensure that the music is always well audible and easy to understand.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.
