Today we present one of the most frequently performed Christmas songs, Stephen Adams’ Jerusalem or The Holy City as it is also called.
We presented some recordings of this song in the Advent calendar of 2008, and here is another version. The performer is the Dutch baritone Thomas Denijs (1877-1935), accompanied by an unknown pianist. Denijs specialized as oratorio and lieder singer, and participated in the performance of Bach’s St. Matthews Passion under Wilhelm Mengelberg.
The recording session took place in The Hague on August 29 1929, and the recording was published by his Master’s Voice with the number HMV C 4831 and matrix numbers 2-092018 1 R ck1578II and 2-092019 1 G ck1584II.
