Bach’s joyous and exuberant Christmas Oratorio, a stalwart of the festive season.
The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, a range of star vocalists including soprano Katherine Watson and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, all conducted by the acclaimed Stephen Layton.
‘You can’t go wrong with this’
– David Mellor, Classic Fm
‘…the players of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment confirm that they are not merely impeccably-trained musicians… they are fully-fledged participants in the drama, their individual and collective contributions combining with the solo and choral singing and Maestro Layton’s inspired leadership to weave from Bach’s musical threads an extraordinarily beautiful fabric.’
