Jauchzet, frohlocket! The Netherlands Chamber Choir heralds the festive season with its annual tradition: the performance of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. Every year the Choir works with a different top European ensemble to perform Bach’s oratorio. In recent years this has resulted in some splendid performances with the Freiburger Barockorchester, Concerto Köln, B’Rock, Concerto Copenhagen and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.

“The Christmas Oratorio is not to be missed”

This year the choir is working for the first time with a French ensemble, the renowned Les Talens Lyriques. This ensemble gained fame in the Netherlands as the orchestra that accompanied the legendary stagings of Monteverdi’s operas by Pierre Audi. Founder Christophe Rousset will lead the ensemble and choir through Bach’s masterpiece. The Christmas Oratorio is not to be missed!
