Christmas Oratorio Part III
Bach's Christmas Oratorio. This cantata tells of the Three Kings and their journey to Bethlehem. First performed at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, we celebrate the Holidays with a new recording of this Christmas favorite on the very Sunday's Bach intended them. To add a home town touch this recording features the Leipzig based Gewandhaus orchestra and the voices of the Dresden Chamber Choir with soloists, Carolyn Sampson, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Wolfram Lattke and bass, Konstantin Wolff. The music director is Riccardo Chailly.
