This box set is a collection of Cantatas for the entire Christmas season from our award-winning series of recordings from the 2000 Bach Cantata Pilgrimage.

It includes some of Bach’s best known cantatas, including the glorious Christen, atzet diesen Tag (CD1), the festive and brilliant Unser Mund sei voll Lachens (CD2) , the infectiously rhythmic Ich freue mich in dir (CD3), Gelobet seist du (CD1) and many other “jewels” which glow with that special sense of expectation that is the hallmark of Bach’s Christmas music.

Packaged in a clamshell box, it contains 6 CDs in individual sleeves and a booklet with collected notes by John Eliot Gardiner, and texts in German and English.
