Bach Christmas Oratorio parts 1, 2 and 3

Sparkling brass, drum rolls and a jubilant choir: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio gets straight to the point. After that radiant start, the one marvel follows another: heavenly chorales and recitatives, an affectionate sinfonia, Maria’s lullaby, the dance-like duet ‘Herr, dein Mitleid’ – and the Christmas story unfolds in all its glory. Heart-warming music in the darkest days of the year.
