The Christmas Oratorio by J.S. Bach (sung in English)
“Christians, be joyful, and praise your salvation.” So begins J.S.
Bach’s rousing first cantata in the Christmas Oratorio. The trumpets
blare, the timpani boom, and the 75 voices of the North Country Chorus
announce the celebration of Christ’s birth.
