Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Knabenchor Hannover, the Barockorchester L’Arco, and Joerg Breiding—all acclaimed experts for Early Music—perform Bach’s cantatas Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (BWV 61), Christen, aetzet diesen Tag (BWV 63) and Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage (BWV 248 I). As Breiding explains, the musicians present an “alternative Christmas Oratorio” with these works. The ensembles are joined by the internationally renowned soloists Antonia Bourvé (soprano), Claudia Erdmann (alto), Markus Schaefer (tenor), and Michael Jaeckel (bass). The Christmastide atmosphere at Hanover’s Marktkirche further draws the listeners and viewers into the performance’s magical aura.
