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 ****

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

Distler, H: Die Weihnachtsgeschichte

Distler, H: Die Weihnachtsgeschichte


Regina Werner (Elizabeth), Volker Arndt (Angel), Heidi Rieb (Mary), Hans-Joachim Rotzsch (narrator), Gothart Stier (Simeon), Hermann Christian Polster (Herod)

Thomanerchor Leipzig, Hans-Joachim Rotzsch

The revival of Protestant church music after the First World War marked the renewal of pieces available for direct use in services and represented a search for a new scale of values. Admired in church music circles but persecuted by the Nazis for his 'degenerate' music, Hugo Distler was one of its foremost cultivators, imbuing his choral music with pre‐Classical forms to create a distinctive style that would be accessible to the 'common' man. The tender Weihnachtsgeschichte Op.10, composed in 1933, is one of Distler's many works adhering this criteria and which narrates the traditional Christmas story according to the gospels of St Luke and St Matthew. Right from the start, in the first of two motets which frame the piece, the composer conjures up complex modal harmonies that evoke ancient, dark images, and, throughout the composition (written for four soloists and four‐part a cappella chorus) he recalls the musical language of the great Baroque composer Heinrich Schütz, drawing on his use of word‐painting and imitative counterpoint but all the time embellishing the work with new techniques such as syncopated rhythm and harmonic dissonance. The free recitative style of the soloists is particularly affecting – here the note heads without heads encourage the use of natural speech rhythms, reflecting once again the influence of Schütz through his frequent close matching of music to intonation.

Distler's life came to a tragic end when, in the face of ever increasing persecution in Berlin and the constant threat of recruitment into the military service, he committed suicide in 1942. Multiple repeated phrases in Weihnachtsgeschichte such as 'Zu Bethlehem im jüdischen Lande' (‘To Bethlehem in the Jewish countries’) are testament to the composer's resolve to stand true to his faith, despite the persecution that it ultimately aroused. This recording, featuring a stellar solo cast ably supported by the Thomanerchor Leipzig – one of the most respected choirs in the Europe – can only increase our appreciation for a composer whose work represents an important chapter in sacred music history.
