The Christmas Oratorio

Jane Glover, conductor

J. S. Bach

From the heaven-storming timpani of the opening movement, the Christmas story unfolds in dramatic narrative, moving arias, and inspiring choruses—performed with the passion and style Music of the Baroque always brings to Bach’s great choral works.
