Recorded in the magnificent 14th century St. Mary's Church in Krakow, one of the most precious gothic monuments in Poland, this delightful performance of Bach's Christmas Oratorio exudes the joyful spirit of Christmas. This constitutes the third in a series of DVD productions with Helmuth Rilling.

The first three cantatas of this oratorio are among the best-known pieces of the whole work, including the opening chorus Jauchzet, Frohlocket, the virtuoso tenor aria Groser Herr und starker König and the famous Sinfonia.

Helmuth Rilling conducts his own ensemble, the Gachinger Kantorei Stuttgart, one of the world's finest vocal ensembles today, and the Chorus and Orchestra of the Bach-Academy Krakow.
