Intention and target for this composition was a cantata to celebrate the octocentenary of the municipal church of Preetz (Germany). Since the first performance was fixed at 30th of May 2010, the week after Whitsun, a Whit cantata seemed to be indicated. The setting was guided by the musical resources involving the congregational singing during the anniversary celebration. Kaiser-Lindemann expanded the setting by five professional performers: solo soprano, solo flute, 2 piccolo trumpets and timpani.

The lyrics were based on the forceful latin “Veni, Creator Spiritus” by Rhabanus Maurus from the 9th century, which praises the Pneuma’s power. Furthermore two different german translations were added: on the one hand the familiar “Komm, Gott Schöpfer, Heiliger Geist” and on the other hand the less known “Komm, Schöpfer Geist, kehr bei uns ein”.

Stilistically Kaiser-Lindemann’s work ranges between Gregorian hints and ecclesiastical modes right up to contemporary atonal affinity.

This about 10 minute five mouvement composition "Geistliche Abendmusik" (Sacred Serenade) after lyrics by Eichendorff, M. Claudius and the Bible stilistically links to J. Brahms und R. Strauss. Readily accessible it develops an impressive atmosphere in its vespertine moods. By vocal and instrumental part splitting even rises time and again a grand harmonic richness besides a genereal tonal restraint. The composition suits for completion of programs with Roantic choral catata.
The short very lyrically composed solo parts call for voices with delicate timbre.
(Prof. Hans Gebhard)

Wilhelm Mohr's Psalm 24 "Machet die Tore weit" (Lift up your heads, O ye gates) op. 3 for mixed choir, large orchestra and organ with children's choir ad lib. is a powerful music in the late romantic tradition. Its grandly structured line leads finally in the well known Advent carol "Macht hoch die Tür" (Open the Door High), to sing optionally by a children's choir but even accompanied by the congregation.

The symphonic meditation "Osternacht“ (Easter vigil) was written in 1987. It is subtitled with "Longing for heaven".

In the classical sense the composition could be seen as symphonic poem. By the sacral context it containes also the aspect of an oratorio, which indeed bears characteristics of a church opera by the choreographic instructions given in the score. The composer uses here the ancient German Easter hymn "Christ ist erstanden" (Christ is risen) as well as the Gregorian Liturgy "Victimae pascali laudes" (Easter Antiphon).

The composition "An den Tod" (To the death) op. 73.1 for boys' choir and male choir based on words by Gerrit Engelke (1890-1918) was written in 1937. As the composer himself fell in the fight at an age of 36 barely three years later at the beginning of the Second World War, this work seems like a foreshadowed anticipation on the own destiny.

Lyrics:

An den Tod                                       To death
Gerrit Engelke (1890–1918)                         Gerrit Engelke (1890–1918)
 
Mich aber schone, Tod,                           But spare me, death,
Mir dampft noch Jugend blutstromrot –        Youth is still steaming me blood red
Noch hab ich nicht mein Werk erfüllt,         I have not fulfilled my work yet,
Noch ist die Zukunft dunstverhüllt –              The future is still covered with haze
Drum schone mich, Tod!                             So spare me, death!
 
Wenn später einst, Tod,                             When later, once, death,
Mein Leben verlebt ist, verloht                   My life is spent, burned up
Ins Werk wenn das müde Herz sich neigt, Into the work when the tired heart declines,
Wenn die Welt mir schweigt –                         When the world falls silent to me
Dann trage mich fort, Tod!                         Then carry me away, death!

O, dass unsre Seele würde                                      Oh, that our soul would become

„Als ich in der Nacht vom 17. zum 18. Juni 1813    "When on the night of the 17th to the 18th of June, 1813,
schwer verwundet und hilflos in einem Holze lag    I was severely wounded and helpless in a wood and
und zu sterben meinte:“                                        said to die:"
 
Die Wunde brennt, die bleichen Lippen beben.   The wound burns, the pale lips quiver.
Ich fühl's an meines Herzens mattem Schlage,         I feel it in the dull beating of my heart,
Hier steh ich an den Marken meiner Tage. –              Here I stand at the marks of my day.
Gott, wie du willst, dir hab' ich mich ergeben. –      God, as you wish, I surrendered to you.
 
Viel goldne Bilder sah ich um mich schweben,         I saw many golden images floating around me
Das schöne Traumlied wird zur Todtenklage! –         The beautiful dream song becomes a threnody!
Mut! Mut! Was ich so treu im Herzen trage,          Courage! Courage! – What I carry so faithfully in my heart,
Das muß ja doch dort ewig mit mir leben! –              That must live there forever with me!
 
Und was ich hier als Heiligtum erkannte,               And what I recognized here as a sanctuary,
Wofür ich rasch und jugendlich entbrannte,           Wherefore I burned quickly and youthfully,
Ob ich's nun Freiheit, ob ich's Liebe nannte,           Whether I call it freedom, whether I called it love,
 
Als lichten Seraph seh ich's vor mir stehen, –            As a shining Seraph, I see it standing before me,
Und wie die Sinne langsam mir vergehen,              And as the senses slowly pass me by,
Trägt mich ein Hauch zu morgenroten Höhen.        A touch carries me to morning-red heights.
