Notes & Reviews:
The Christmas Oratorio is one of Bach's most joyous and popular masterworks. Conceived as a series of six cantatas to be performed during the Christmas season, Bach drew upon his treasure trove of secular cantatas for inspiration, skillfully adapting them, in addition to composing several stunning new movements to capture every aspect of the Christmas story in sound. And what a radiant sound it is! The glorious voices of the Stuttgart Hymnus Chorknaben ring out in a superlative performance that the Esslinger Zeitung praised: "With nearly a hundred youthful voices joined in song, Bach's Christmas Oratorio never sounded more radiant!"Notes & Reviews:
