J.S. Bach: Christmas Oratorio
Cantatas 2 & 4, Cantata 61: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland
Cantata 65: Sie werden aus Saba alle kommen

A richly rewarding musical journey through the Christmas season with Johann Sebastian Bach. Cantata 61 offers a dramatic setting of Martin Luther’s Advent chorale and Cantatas 2 & 4 of the Christmas Oratorio deal with episodes of the Nativity, featuring respectively a pastoral choir of woodwind instruments and hunting horns. The superb but little known Cantata 65 uses horns, recorders, oboes da caccia and strings to depict the exotic world of the Wise Men.
