Carl Loewe, who today is known only for his Ballades, left behind an extensive musical opus especially created to meet the rapidly growing needs of the emerging middle class during the Biedermeier period (including 15 oratorios). in the oratorio Das Sühnopfer des neuen Bundes (The Expiatory Sacrifice of the New Covenant), composed during the middle of the 19th century based on the story of the Passion as a compilation by Wilhelm Telschow of texts drawn from the four Gospels, Loewe merged the stylistic tendencies of this era into a simple, charming whole. in accordance with the demands of that time, the vocal parts can be accompanied solely by a keyboard instrument, by strings with or without a keyboard instrument, or by a symphonic orchestra.
