Bach’s Christmas Oratorio Parts 1, 3, 5 & 6
The Christmas Oratorio is a collection of six cantatas telling the Christmas story. Combining intensely beautiful melody with flamboyant orchestral writing (including some of the most virtuosic trumpet music ever written), it’s hard to imagine a more uplifting start to the Christmas season.
