Bach's Christmas Oratorio is undeniably the number ONE in the Christmas repertoire of choirs as well as in popularity with audiences. The Christmas story, according to the Gospels of St. Luke and St. Matthew, combined with free poetry and individual chorale stanzas attains, together with the clearly structured, festive Baroque music, an eloquent radiance of timeless beauty. To confidently keep up with the frequent, sometimes very rapid sixteenth-coloraturas – for example in the "herrliche Chöre" (no. 1), the "Wohlgefallen" (no. 21, Vivace!), and the "Schnauben der stolzen Feinde" (no. 54) – practicing with the Slow Mode of the app is particularly recommended.
