BACH
Orchestral Suite No. 3 

BACH
Christmas Oratorio, Cantatas 4, 5 and 6

Fun Facts:

  • Bach’s Christmas Oratorio was written with the intention of each cantata being performed a different night over the 12 days of Christmas.
  • The Christmas Oratorio, completed around Christmastime of 1734, is a set of six cantatas. Much like the passions of Matthew and John, it features a tenor Evangelist telling the story of Christ as it appears in the gospels of Luke and Matthew.
  • For the Oratorio, Bach borrowed his own music, adapting choruses and arias from earlier secular works for this large-scale endeavor.
  • A British conductor with a lifelong affinity for Bach and baroque music, Nicholas Kraemer “brings a zest and exuberance to even the most familiar works.” Chicago Classical Review
