A glorious collection of cantatas for the Christmas period, taken from the opening and closing concerts in Sir John Eliot Gardiner's epic Bach pilgrimage.
The cantatas were performed on the liturgical feasts for which they were composed, in a year-long musical pilgrimage encompassing some of the most beautiful churches throughout Europe (including many where Bach himself performed) and culminating in three concerts in New York over the Christmas festivities at the end of the millennial year. These recordings of cantatas for the Christmas season were made at the beginning and end of the Pilgrimage.
