Dunedin Consort - J.S. Bach: Christmas Oratorio - The Bloomington Herald

Consider musical holiday gifts 

There remains a week for additional gifting of others and self, and there are always more options.

Let's start with two holiday favourites.

The Bach [Christmas Oratorio], prepared and conducted by John Butt, features Butt's stunning Dunedin Consort and a delicious-to-hear set of soloists. This is a period-authentic performance, with small-scaled orchestral and choral forces. The six Advent and Christmas cantatas that Bach chose for this musical celebration are performed with welcome energy, clarity and attention to period detail.
