A Soundtrack for Christmas

All right, enough already of the reindeer and sappy carols. Who better to depict the true spirit of the Christmas season than the greatest of them all, J.S. Bach? Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage: Even Ebenezer Scrooge couldn’t have resisted.

Here’s Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducting the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists in the so-called Christmas Oratorio BWV 248, that splendid package of six Christmastime cantatas. A very happy Christmas to all!
