Joy and jubilation in Christmas cantatas rich in imagery

There’s no better prelude to Christmas than Bach's festive Christmas Oratorio. In the run-up to Christmas 1734, fifty-year-old Bach – then at the height of his artistic power – put together a complete Christmas oratorio in just a few weeks. He managed this by drawing on his entire oeuvre and thus rescued some of his most beautiful melodies from oblivion. With four parts of Bach's joyful Christmas story, il Gardellino roll out the red carpet for Christmas.
