Correlli's Concerto grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8, known commonly as his Christmas Concerto, in a special transcription for string quartet. The piece was commissioned by Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni and published posthumously in 1714 as part of his Twelve concerti grossi, Op. 6. The concerto bears the inscription Fatto per la notte di Natale ("Made for the night of Christmas"). It was composed around 1690, since there is a record of Corelli having that year performed a Christmas concerto for the enjoyment of his then-new patron.
