Known for “performances of unmatched excellence” (Gramophone), the Bach Collegium Japan and its celebrated music director, Masaaki Suzuki, bring their signature crispness and purity to a beloved Bach masterpiece. For this festive holiday performance, the period-instrument orchestra and choir highlight the polyphonic wonder of Bach’s rich, imaginative cantatas written to celebrate Jesus’s birth.
