Format: Audio CD
This Christmas cantata volume is the crown jewel of the Monteverdi Choir's series of complete Bach cantatas. The opening chorus of the first cantata on this CD is what heaven must sound like. Unlike a few recordings I've heard of these cantatas where the instruments overpower the voices, John Gardiner does a great job of balancing out the orchestra and choir. I listened to this CD constantly when I first got it. Buy the Monteverdi Choir's disk with the Advent cantatas to supplement this superb recording.

If you like Bach and are a fan of Gardiner, you'll love this recording! The words to the opening cantata, when translated into English, read: "Christians, engrave this day(Christmas)in metal and marbel..." In this opening cantata, Bach, as no other composer can, paints a vivid musical picture of a hammer hitting a chisle(timpani) on metal(trumpets). Gardiner, the English Boroque Soloists, and the Monteverdi Choir, offer a performance of the Christmas Cantatas that will be "engraved" in the listener's mind even after the Christmas season.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This recording of Four of Bach's Christmas Cantatas shows the listener some of his most joyful music. Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Montiverdi

Choir and the English Baroque Soloists deliver the goods on every selection. My personal favorte is BWV 63 "Christen atzet diesen Tag"

These recordings are part of the DG Archiv series of Bach Cantata Pilgrimage recordings, which for reasons of Money, et al, discontinued.

So Sir John and company decided to start their own label SDG or Soli Deo

Gloria which is working hard to record the rest of the cantatas from the

pilgrimage. The cantata are performed on Authentic Instruments, but do not

sound like an academic excersise in performance, instead they sound like

a celebration of Bach's music and spiritually. I can easily recommend the

entire series of recordings on both labels. Also their DVD of Bach's "

Christmas Oratorio" on Arthaus is a must have item, and a great compliment

to these recordings.
