Johann Sebastian Bach always has a lot to offer in the realm of music. And this is certainly the case when it comes to Christmas. Actually in Leipzig at his time, music was silent during Advent – but that meant more time to prepare for the busy Christmas days. In an earlier post, I dealt with his first Christmas in Leipzig, in the year 1723.
In below playlist, I have collected some movements from his Christmas cantatas and the Christmas Oratorio (the latter being in fact 6 separate cantatas).
