In Bach’s time, there were three Christmas days. Thanks to a beautiful album by Herreweghe, you can enjoy all cantatas Bach wrote for the consecutive days in 1724 in the order in which Bach wrote them. Or follow these YouTube links for the same recordings:
For Christmas Day: Cantata 91 Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ
For Second Christmas Day: Cantata 121 Christum wir sollen loben schon
For Third Christmas Day: Cantata 133 Ich freue mich in dir
Soloists are: Dorothee Mields, soprano; Ingeborg Danz, alto; Mark Padmore, tenor; Peter Kooy, bass.
