Most of them were commissioned works for the feast and includes very different styles: from festive cantatas, moody motets to chamber musically solo songs.

A 'must' for all lovers of Baroque Music as well as for listeners who would like to find some extraordinary music for the upcoming feast.

“Seasonal motets and cantatas by Christiam Geist, Pal Esterhazy, Buxtehude, and Giuseppe Maria Po del Finale, with a tranch of contributions from Bach family members. Thoroughly engaging.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 ****

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio (highlights)

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio (highlights)


Ingeborg Danz (alto), Martin Petzold (tenor)

St Thomas’s Boys Choir Leipzig, Gewandhausorchester, Georg Christoph Biller

For centuries, the sound of Christmas has been imagined as the music of the angels – and the grand choruses of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio glow with this festivity and joyful brilliance. In short: everything that is associated with Christmas is captured in sound in this piece.

“Excerpt from Bach's Christmas Oratorio, the highlight being the vibrant sound of the Thomanerchor, the all-boy choir of the church where Bach was cantor. Classy support from the Gewandhausorchester.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 ****

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232


Reglint Bühler (soprano), Susanne Krumbiegel (mezzo‐soprano), Susanne Langner (alto), Martin Lattke (tenor) & Markus Flaig (bass)

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Freiburger Barockorchester (playing on authentic period instruments), Georg Christoph Biller

The Mass in B Minor, Bach's last completed vocal work as well as the climax of his creativity, reveals the overwhelming wealth of his compositional skills. In the history of music it ranks highly, as the "Montblanc of church music" (Franz Liszt) ‐ composed during Bach's time as cantor at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. Performed in this important composer’s domain, the Mass in B Minor casted a spell over its listeners as the crowning glory of the Leipzig Bach Festival in 2013: Under the direction of Bach's successor Georg Christoph Biller, the St. Thomas Boys Choir and an outstanding soloist quintet perform with the prestigious Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, playing on authentic period instruments.

“The Thomanerchor is superb. Trebles match the confidence and facility of any adult choir...The Freibarockorchester matches their fluency and stylistic sensitivity...In the arias, the communication between instruments and voices is striking” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 *****

“while this may not be the most authoritative account of this much-loved work, the sense of occasion that a live recording imparts is palpable; so, for that matter, is the sense of focused music-making, tempered by a discreet but distinct camaraderie...Sound and visuals function well.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2014
