 The whole ( 5 parts together) Christmas Oratorio. January 13, 2016 By VICTOR SALDIVAR (SAN ANTONIO, TX) See All My Reviews "To my knowledge, this is the first single DVD (I've got the Blu-ray!) that offers the sight and sound of this music by Bach in one sitting. Herreweghe and his group at Gent are both down-to-earth and sensacional in all aspects of the production. We know there are other super-recordings of this Oratorio, perhaps some DVDs, but this production by the meticulous and erudite Herreweghe is going to stay at the cuspid for a long time. Don't miss is please!" Report Abuse
