Notes & Reviews:
The Christmas Oratorio is the sublime outcome of a vast project that Bach completed between December 1734 and January 1735. This monumental fresco inspired by the history of the Nativity for narrators, soloists, choirs and orchestra comprises no fewer than six sections, each one a huge cantata. René Jacobs's acclaimed 1997 recording of the work is offered here at a special price.
