German texts for Oratorio

Here are some German texts that we’ll sing with the Oratorio society in March. Maybe this’ll help my fellow choristers practice German pronunciation. We’ll sing:

Bach, Cantata no. 4, Christ lag in Todes Banden: Spoken text

Clara Schumann:

Abendfeier in Venedig: Spoken text

Vorwärts: Spoken text

Gondoliera: Spoken text
