Notes & Reviews:

Dating from 1734-5, Bach's Christmas Oratorio has six sections marking the season from Christmas day through Epiphany, and is scored for four soloists, choir and orchestra. The work abounds with Bach's most inspired music. These highlights are taken from the highly praised Naxos recording of the complete oratorio, described in Gramophone magazine as having a "freshness of approach and spirited music-making."
