Summary
"Bach's Christmas Oratorio is among his most joyous music. Although not actually an oratorio--it is really a series of six cantatas--it was written for the 1734-1735 Christmas celebration in Leipzig. Curiously, to illustrate this, the most sacred of Christian celebrations, Bach chose to "parody" many movements from secular cantatas ... . This recording uses about a dozen musicians and a choir of about twenty, giving the music a very intimate feeling--this is light years away from the heavier performances of this work where a large choir drowns out the musicians"--Musicweb
