Merry Christmas, from Johann Sebastian

I’ve been looking for just the right Christmas present for you.

Naturally, I lit on Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.

But, I thought, it’s much too long, and it’s in German. Happily, I was able to find a version with subtitles.

Nothing says that you have to listen to it all or all at once.

All things considered, it’s a great gift, well worth however much time you would want to devote to it.

Merry Christmas!

I bought the Robert Greenberg Course on Bach and the High Baroque from the Great Courses. Well, WELL worth the money, if you're a layman who likes Bach and wants to understand his music better.
