Collegium Vocale Gent - Bach: Christmas Oratorio

Collegium Vocale Gent, Dorothee Mields, soprano | Damien Guillon alto | Thomas Hobbs tenor | Peter Kooij bass
Philippe Herreweghe

Johann Sebastian Bach's most famous Christmas work was recorded live at the Salle Henry Le Bœuf in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. Who would have thought, three centuries ago, that these cantatas, written by Bach for the services from Christmas to the Epiphany, would one day be performed as a single work presenting the Christmas story? As usual, internationally-renowned Bach expert Philippe Herreweghe, who founded the Collegium Vocale in 1970, surrounds himself with superb soloists who are well skilled in the music of the Cantor.
