Johann Sebastian Bach: Christians, etch this blessed day

Johann Sebastian Bach

Christians, etch this blessed day

Cantata for the 1st day of Christmas

BWV 63, 1715

Description

With its scoring for a large number of performers, who according to earlier practice were divided into various groups, this Cantata is clearly a festive work. In the richness of its scoring it was equalled, but not surpassed, by Bach's first Leipzig Cantate for the Election of the Town Council, BWV 119, of 1723. It is noticeable that the words of BWV 63 relate to Christmas only in the recitatives, while the choruses and arias express the praise of God in general terms.
