Info

To many people Advent is a very special time of the year, and so it is to composer Thiemo Kraas. In his eyes, waiting on the feast of love, accompanied by so many beautiful impressions and special moments, is an invitation to find oneself. The longing for contemplation is particularly strong then, so with his little Advent fantasy Thiemo Kraas wants to stop time and offer us solitude and strength to find a moment of peaceful reflection. For his composition “Mentis” – Latin for “contemplation” – he chose two of his favorite Advent songs: The expectant-festive “Macht hoch die Tür” and the sincere “Maria durch ein’ Dornwald ging”. Both songs are so wonderful because of their simplicity and depth.
Except for small details, the eXplora version of “Mentis” is very similar to the version for wind band, so you can easily combine the two editions. This allows for joint performances of youth and adult wind bands – a particularly rewarding event during Christmas time!
