Gabrieli Consort & Player & Mc Creesh - Bach's Christmas Cantatas and CarolsChristmas Time, Music
12/13/2021

To commemorate the most important days of Christmas in the Lutheran calendar (25, 26 and 27 December; New Year's Day, Epiphany and, where appropriate, the Sunday after Christmas and the Sunday after the New Year), Bach composed a series of different cantatas. Cantata 63, for example, is intended to be performed on Christmas Day and is notable for its festive character, while Cantata 151, for 27 December, is intimate and personal. Now we have the opportunity to hear them together with the Mass in G major, Cantata 146 and the anthem Vom Himmel hoch, played by the Gabrieli Consort & Players with Paul McCreesh conducting.
