Description

Bach's Christmas Oratorio (CD)

This release is following the massive success of 2015's Magnificat & Christmas Cantata. Dunedin Consort is excited to release their follow-up album, Bach's Christmas Oratorio. Conductor John Butt applies his extensive knowledge of Bach's performing practices to present the range of choral scoring that Bach seems to have used, realizing something of the implications of the composer's performing conditions and decisions. The Dunedin Consort ahs established a reputation as one of the finest period performance choirs around.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
