Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This release is following the massive success of 2015's Magnificat & Christmas Cantata. Dunedin Consort is excited to release their follow-up album, Bach's Christmas Oratorio. Conductor John Butt applies his extensive knowledge of Bach's performing practices to present the range of choral scoring that Bach seems to have used, realizing something of the implications of the composer's performing conditions and decisions. The Dunedin Consort has established a reputation as one of the finest period performance choirs around.
