This special single-album release contains four glorious Christmas cantatas, and includes the festive and brilliant BWV 110 Unser Mund sei voll Lachens, which has irresistible swagger, innate elegance and lightness of touch. Its opening movement is identical to Bach’s fourth Orchestral Suite, BWV 1069, but the piece sounds new-minted, alive with unexpected sonorities and a marvellous rendition of laughter-in-music. Bach’s overall design for BWV 121 Christum wir sollen loben is to mirror the change from darkness to light and to show how the moment when Christians celebrate the coming of God’s light into the world coincides with the turning of the sun at the winter solstice. And BWV 91 Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ glows with that special sense of expectation that is the hallmark of Bach in Christmas mode.

"This splendidly varied selection constitutes some of the last hurrahs of the Pilgrimage ... another fine addition in to this refreshingly varied and unpredictable series."
