  • Solomon's Knot

Much of its music adapted from previous compositions, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio consists of half a dozen cantatas designed to be performed on separate occasions during the Christmas period – as was originally the scheme in Leipzig between December 25 1734 and January 6 1735. As such, it is rarely heard complete. In this programme the first four cantatas are performed.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
      • Christmas Oratorio BWV248
        • Cantata I: Jauchzet, frohlocket! Auf, preiset die Tage
        • Cantata II: Und es waren Hirten in derselben Gegend
        • Cantata III: Herrscher des Himmels, erhöre das Lallen
        • Cantata IV: Fallt mit Danken, fallt mit Loben
