Bach’s Christmas Oratorio offers a set of related cantatas, originally intended for consecutive performance on the six church feasts between Christmas Day and Epiphany.

John Butt and his Dunedin Consort, acclaimed for their revelatory readings of Bach, present four of the cantatas in one evening, leading listeners through its compelling account of the Nativity story and creating ideal conditions to contemplate its timeless message.
