Dunedin Consort - J.S. Bach: Christmas Oratorio - Classical CD Choice
Are you of the opinion that Bach's much-loved Christmas Oratorio has nothing new to offer you? Think again. This splendid new release is virtually an exemplar of how period practice aligned with sharp and energetic performance can ensure a very familiar piece comes up fresh as paint. That's very much the case here, and the set is a further indication of how Butt's highly individual approach to baroque scores pays dividends.
